Shaykh Qazi Asad: "When someone has oppression they need to express their feeling because they kept it in themself for so long or they believe there is no justice.
"If there is no justice, there is no peace, but what we see out there on the street of the USA, yes, there was no justice, but there is no peace today. Looting business, setting it on fire, that's not what this nation stands for.
"It's okay under the Bill of Rights to go ahead and express yourself, protest, but it does not give us the right to look someone's business and livelihood. What example are we setting?
"What we need to do is to change the system, and the system will not change by you burning businesses.
"Think about it.
