    "Let us be brave and forceful in standing up for each other’s rights to live and worship freely and let us not be afraid to say that whoever threatens that right for any one of us will have to face all of us together."

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard  delivered the keynote address at the 10th Annual Prophet Muhammad Day event at Rutgers University. "The event, hosted by Muslims for Peace, is focused on bringing communities together to celebrate the legacy of compassion, mercy, and justice of the Prophet Muhammad, and to stand together against anti-Muslim rhetoric and policies."

    Gabbard focuses on the need for faiths all across the country and the world to come together to respect and protect each other. She draws from personal experience when political opponents attempted to use her religion as a reason not to vote for her, and sites many instances of crime and discrimination against certain religions.
