Muslim woman thrown out of Trump rally; group seeks apology

Wearing a hijab and a shirt that read 'Salam, I come in peace, ' Mrs Hamid had hoped that her presence might manage to change the opinion some Trump supporters have about members of the Islam faith.

Hamid said that the people who were sitting around her with whom she had an opportunity to talk with "were very sweet", but "the people I did not make contact with, the people who Trump influenced were really nasty".

Hamid sat directly in the stands behind Trump, and during his speech as he suggested Syrian war refugees were affiliated with ISIS she chose to stand silently.

In response, his supporters stood and cheered his remarks as 56-year-old Rose Hamid stood motionless, saying nothing.

Hamid's evening culminated when she was ejected from the Trump rally in Rock Hill, South Carolina, as people around her booed and shouted, but the hours before were an exercise in contrasts and surprising humanity.

Ms Hadid had been joined a group of other protestors, some of whom were also escorted out by security.

A Muslim woman was escorted out of rally for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday after she staged a silent protest.

"This demonstrates how when you start dehumanising the other it can turn people into very hateful, ugly people", Hamid told CNN.

Mr Trump has previously made controversial calls for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US.

During Trump's speech at least two local Muslims were escorted from the venue. She added that she had wanted the crowd to see what a real Muslim looked like.

Critics of Mr Trump's bombastic run for the presidency accuse him of fanning the flames and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton says he is the "best recruiter" for ISIL.

Hough's group had also attended Trump's rally in Aiken, South Carolina, and were ejected for participating in a protest then. "It needs to be known", she said.

Trump has come under fire from the public and politicians for repeated comments seen as planting fear of Muslims, including that they should carry specific identification cards and that mosques should be closed. She says although she was asked to leave, she met friendly Trump supporters who were open to hear her thoughts.
