GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - An upstate Islamic group has taken to the streets of Greenville to condemn the attacks on Paris.

Multiple media outlets report “Muslims Against ISIS” rallied Sunday from One City Plaza. The Islamic Society of Greenville says they were joined by people who aren’t of Muslim faith but who stand with them. The group says they criticize any attack made by terror groups.

Many attendees held signs with messages like, “Not in my name,” and “Muslims condemn ISIS.”

Akan Malici, an associate professor at Furman University, addressed the crowd, calling ISIS an enemy of humanity. He spoke about how Muslims have been killed by ISIS and are fleeing for safety.
