WASHINGTON, May 01, 2012 – American Islamic Congress COO Abdel Maliky spoke today at a rally calling for peace in Sudan and South Sudan. Speaking from the stage in Lafayette park beside the White House, Maliky stated that the resolution of the conflict required interfaith dialog, and argued that the roots of the fighting were not based in religious dispute.
“It’s not about religion,” Maliky said. “It’s people using religion to do what we’re doing to oppress people’s civil rights and oppress the right of the other people.”
