We have never met.
Yet, you seem to have bought into the idea that I am a threat.
One fringe group screamed “Muslim,” and lo and behold, you caved.
And, in turn, you’ve made the drastic error of pulling your company’s spots from essentially an All-American show from an all-American TV network.
Clearly, you do not seem to know much about American Muslims or their contributions to the American fabric, so let me take this opportunity to enlighten you.
I come from a proud immigrant family that moved here 20 years ago from Pakistan. My parents taught my siblings and me to work hard and accomplish our dreams. Today, we are contributing members of our communities, with two of my siblings working as physician’s assistants and one as a firefighter. As for me, I turned to writing and advocacy during my days in college and have continued to pursue those causes with fervor.
