Abstract

“Muslims are foreigners to him,” said Munarman, a spokesman for Indonesian extremist group the Islamic Defenders’ Front, notorious for hate crimes and violence in the name of Islam. “In Donald Trump’s view, Muslims are not part of America.”

Indeed, the world is still trying to process what exactly happened in America. How did Donald Trump become the leader of the “free world.”

To me the most hypocritical reaction comes from the Muslim world. Of course they have focused on his controversial calls to ban Muslims from entering America and increasing surveillance on American Muslims in response to terrorist offences.

Muslim anger was palpable. “We hope that Trump’s remarks against Muslims were only to boost his campaign,” said Tahir Ashrafi, a senior Pakistani government cleric.
