Oklahoma Muslims will hold a rally Friday afternoon in Oklahoma City, to publicly denounce ISIS and religious extremism in the name of Islam.

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) will join the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City in holding the rally. It will take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the grass lawn southeast of the Penn Square Mall, at the intersection of Penn. and NW Expressway.

"Oklahoma Muslims stand in solidarity with Muslims throughout the United States and the Muslim world in condemning the inhumane and barbaric actions of extremist group ISIS," said CAIR-OK Executive Director Adam Soltani. "ISIS not only represents the worst of humanity, but their actions are without a doubt the antithesis of Islam's teachings."

Last week, Muslims in the Tulsa area held a similar rally to denounce ISIS and hate in the name of religions.
