“I’m afraid to have a son.”

As I stood at the place where 18-year-old Michael Brown took his last breath, shot six times by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, despite being unarmed, these were the words said by a young African-American woman.

“I’m afraid to birth a son who could possibly be a victim of police brutality.”

As she spoke, tears streamed down her face. All I could do was hug her. I couldn’t comfort her by saying that she doesn’t have to worry, because history doesn’t show that. According to a study conducted by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, an organization that promotes self-determination in our community, police officers, security guards or self-appointed vigilantes killed at least 313 African Americans in 2012.

They lived as a family in one of the thousands of sheds in Nayapara Refugee Camp in Teknaf, Bangladesh, which is near the Myanmar border, the motherland of the Rohingya. The country can clearly be seen just across Naf river, which separates the 2 countries beyond the border point shared by the two countries.

Yesterday my son brought home a school project on 9/11 and he couldn’t understand why I snapped at him—’#NeverForget‘ is not just a slogan. Today I apologized to him for not giving him an interview about where I was and what are my worst memories of the day, and what exactly happened on 9/11. He said, “It’s okay, Mama. My sisters told me your about friend, Rahma.”

convert to ISLAM Son of distributor of an anti Islam film (Video)

info-pictogram1 Arnoud van Doorn’s son, Iskander Amien De Vrie, was one of the 37 people who converted to Islam during the #DubaiInternational Peace Convention.

Arnoud van Doorn shot to fame in 2008 as one of the names associated with the anti-Muslim film Fitna, which was released in 2008. The film promoted misconceptions about Islam and Arnoud was one of the film’s distributors.

Five years later, Arnoud was a changed man having learned more about Islam, which he today calls as ‘a religion of peace’. He converted to #Islam after learning more about the religion and his decision shocked the world.

I saw my father become more peaceful after converting to Islam. That’s when I realised there is something good in this #religion and it made me change my perception of Muslims. I started studying the Holy #Quran and going through lectures of important scholars,” said Iskander in an interview with Khaleej Times.
