Note Left On Muslim's Door Post-Inauguration Goes Viral (Photo)

A note left on a Muslim American's door after the inauguration of President Donald Trump has gone viral (photo below).

"After the Trump inauguration, some neighbors left this letter on my uncle's door in Cincinnati, Ohio," Hend Amry wrote on Twitter with a picture of the letter.

The note, addressed "Dear Neighbors," states that regardless of what happens in America, they will support Muslims rights.

"Today begins a new stage for our country," the note states. "No matter what happens, please know there are still a lot of people who will fight for your right to practice your religion, to continue to live your lives without discrimination. You are welcome in our neighborhood and if you need anything --please knock on our door."

The tweet featuring a photo of the letter has been retweeted more than 153,000 times and liked more than 450,000 times since it was posted at 12:35 a.m. on Jan. 21.

The man who received the letter, Abubaker Amri, told WCPO that he does not interact much with his neighbors, besides a cordial "hello," so he was surprised to receive the letter.

"It's a lot..." Amri said. "...There's no way I could express my feelings when I got that note."

Amri, who came to the U.S. from Libya in 1978 and owns a market in Cincinnati, raised his family in the country.

"My daughter, she doesn't know any other place," he said, adding that he, like other Muslim Americans, are worried about Trump being president given his rhetoric.

Trump has said he wants to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S., and remarked that a database tracking Muslims could be set in place, according to ABC News.

Jason Miller, communications director of Trump's transition team, said a Muslim registry will not happen.

“President-elect Trump has never advocated for any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion, and to imply otherwise is completely false," Miller said in a statement in November.

"We don't know if he's just saying that ... or if it'll be true," Amri said of Trump's proposals.

Amri knows which neighbors left the note, but did not name them because he is unsure they want to be identified. The note has helped him to change his mind on the possible future of America.

"This is the other side of America," he told WCPO. "This is the best, best, best experience."
