Daily Show‘s Aasif Mandvi: Peaceful Muslims In TN Ruining It For The Rest Of Us (VIDEO)

Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi was on the scene in Tennessee to report on local opposition to a planned mosque in Murfreesboro. “Opponents say building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero is simply too close,” Mandvi said. “But did you know that 18,000 blocks is also too close?”

Mandvi found out that there was already a mosque in the town that had been there for about 30 years. So he asked a local Muslim woman: “Thirty years? What is taking so long? I mean, let’s go people. I mean, you’re not a sleeper cell. You’re a comatose cell!”

When she contended that all they want is a place to worship, Mandvi replied: “A few good apples like you could really ruin it for the rest of us, you know that?”Watch:
