Qazi merits praise, not vicious attacks

A previously unknown organization named Americans for Peace and Tolerance is waging a vicious smear campaign against an Islamic icon in Western New York.

No Muslim leader has ever worked more diligently at promoting peace and understanding among the various religions than Dr. Khalid Qazi.

His ascendancy to a respectable position in our community and with the authorities is a threat only to those who do not aspire peace and understanding in our community. His moderate views on all topics are to be commended, not viciously attacked.
