“We are going there as a peaceful picket, there will be no incitement or hate speech,” he said.
Protestors will be urged to follow the disposition of the Prophet Muhammed (saw) by behaving in a peaceful and dignified manner.
“We have been given permission by the US Embassy to bring the petition and the memorandum to the US Embassy,” Khan said.
He further reiterated that the main goal is to portray the true character of the blessed Prophet (saw).
Khan said individuals willing to assist or require more information should contact 0826916049.
