U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," immigrants and visitors alike, because of what he describes as hatred among "large segments of the Muslim population" toward Americans. The Associated Press is asking Muslims around the world for their thoughts on his proposal:
TAREQ, 22-year-old college student in Cairo
"I don't pray. I drink. I try to sleep around. All my friends do. I am about as Muslim as (Trump) is. Ban Muslims? Does he have any idea how many Muslims are just Muslims on paper?"
BASSEM YOUSSEF, former talk show host known as the Jon Stewart of the Middle East:
(On Twitter) "I didn't know Donald Trump was fluent in Nazi."
SADIA HAFEEZ, a university student in Islamabad, Pakistan:
"He is pitching non-Muslims against Muslims for political reasons."
