INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana residents can pay their last respects to Muhammad Ali in Indianapolis on Friday.

The Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Alliance of Indiana will host an interfaith memorial service for the former heavyweight boxing champion considered a hero of the Muslim faith.

The service will begin at 6 p.m. Friday at the Indiana Interchurch Center at the intersection of West 42nd Street and Michigan Road on the north side of Indianapolis, across from the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

The Plainfield-based Islamic Society says Ali “was a champion of the people” whose commitment, dedication and stands against injustices influenced millions of people around the world.
