Imam Elahi also honored the Council's achievements in serving the Muslim community and bringing more educations for the families and youth and standing against Islamophobia, he also expressed his personal opinion expecting the Council to be more out speaking not only on the issues related to the Muslim community in America but also the Umma issues in general. The Imam mentioned the war crimes in Yemen and the pain of hunger, poverty and cholera under the Saudi's daily bombardments and aggression!
A number of Imams emphasized on the locality of the Council mission and recommended to focus on the plights of Muslim community in America and to avoid bringing the Middle East problems to the Council discussions.
