Boxing legend Muhammad Ali has criticised Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump after he proposed a ban on Muslims entering the US.

The 73-year-old, who is Muslim himself, issued a statement calling for people to “stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda”.

“True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion,” he said.

“I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”.. see more
