I left the US because of their hatred towards Muslim – This is my story – by Kashif Chaudhry

 

Everyday I would see hate stickers against Muslims at Harvard Medical School. PHOTO: AFP

I was born in 1982, in the beautiful American city of San Jose, California. A proud patriotic Muslim American, my dad would decorate our house with lights every Fourth of July.

Fast forward to the year 2001, when I got admitted to one of America’s top medical schools – the Harvard Medical School in Boston. Moving from San Jose was hard. I stayed in the dorm. Every morning, when I went to take a shower, I saw a sticker on one of the bathroom mirrors on my floor that said,

‘Whoever is a friend of the Muslims is a traitor of Christianity and of America’.

  • i think this guy is not right. i was myself at harvard in 2001. no such discrimination was carried out. all students whether christians or jews were extremely friendly and helpful. they never gave a damn who was a muslim and who was not. MIT had same friendly environment. muslim owned restaurant named Tommy’s Pizza was the busiest eating place in the vicinity of Harvard. however due to 9/11 same year there were plethora of curious questions all over. who are muslims, who are taliban, why they want to kill americans etc etc. but these were out of curiosity. i being muslim was asked questions but in a very friendly way. my experience as pakistani muslim living in america was great. americans people are great people. you can differ with US government policies though.

    • Zahid you stupid fuc*king moron you claim to have attended Harvard and yet you cannot see the sarcasm in this article. I very much doubt you studied at Harvard, maybe you were a pizza delivery boy at that muslim owned pizzeria Tommy’ restaurant.

  • I have been living in US for a while mostly in Midwest so don’t know much about Boston and surrounding areas but Midwest is considered to be the BIBLE-BELT of the US, the residents of Mid west states are very staunch Christians as generally compared to rest of entire US and/or Boston and its surrounding areas that are extremely liberal so its a bit hard for me to believe that myself living in mid-west never felt the level of hostility and hatred that Zahid is mentioning, yes there are definitely bigots and Islam haters here in US, but they go as far as verbal abuse which gives you plenty of chance to reply back to their bigotry, but they will never stop a bus, check your id and shoot you and/or target kill you and/or suicide bomb you along with your wife and children. We also have a few of those Muslims who despite living here and despite enjoying its freedoms and luxuries keep on bashing American every change they get and that is the other side of the coin since they have the right to express their views. All of us American Muslims have seen Muslim women travelling alone and/or working etc. I am not in Boston but its really hard to believe what Zahid is mentioning. For instance he should know that in US they cannot kick you out school and/or stop you from using the dining facilities just because another group of individuals don’t like it. That would fall under profiling and Racism. Racism is a very serious offence in US laws.

    Generally the American public are very friendly and good people and so are Pakistani/Irani/Afghan/Turkish people. Its the governments and their policies that divide people and obviously like any other people, the Americans are loyal to their government and their rulers. Why is that such a strange idea and they tend to believe what they are told by their elected representatives.

    Care to comment Zahid?

    • By the way I know this article is satire and humor based but I thought i might add a few comments of my own experience for those who would read the above article like Zahid did and believe that its all True. Its not TRUE.

  • Now we all know the writer of this article is fake. Let’s not give this person more attention so he would be discouraged next time. I have visited many times USA, I had never seen anything like this. Local people of the USA are much better human being then Saudi Muslims.

  • khalid bhatti mind your language. admn please interfere. why any one should write a sattire that makes people believe in negative image of the subject. few educated people know it is fake but most of the readers would take it seriously. creating hatred against america will never help pakistan.

    • Zahid you jahil moron, you would want to say intervene and not interfere. How the fuk you managed to attend Harvard is beyond me. I am certain you attended that kallu school Howard University and not the Harvard in Massachusetts. Go check the meaning of sarcasm. Man you are really dumb.

  • This is fake article and even dates are incorrect anyone born in 1982 has to be in med school in 2004 or at least 2003 if he/she graduates in three years. The fake writer does not even know that you have to have a four year degree after high school (12 grade) to get admitted in a typical US med school. there are however taliban supporters who will believe in this article same way as they believe in Orya Maqbool and Javed Chaudary, Ansar Abbasi, Mumtaz Mufti and Qudrat ullah Shahab fake/fabricated articles.

  • How is the taste of your own medicine? Is this not happening to Ahmadies and other minorities in Pakistan.If you have any moral courage and decency, write an article like this to address these issues in Pakistan. Ahmadi studens were kicked out of medical college in Faisalabad. What a hypocracy? May you find peace in life. Amen

  • khalid bhatti your language shows where you belong to. you have been paid to demonize america. the article seems to be written by you with another name. thats why you are flaring up so much. America is a great place for all diversities.

  • Nobody here in the US cared or took interest in Islam before 911. Now they ask how would Muslims feel if we dropped Pig Poop over Mecca in revenge.
    Mecca is after all the most holy of all Islamic shrines and any act of smearing it with Pig Poop would only go to show that Allah, if there is such a thing does not give a damn to keep it sacred forever.
    But Muslim need not fear any retribution from the US cause our black monkey resident of the White House holds Islam in even higher esteem than most Islamic nations do.
    But soon a patriotic American would occupy the Presidency then perhaps dealing with Mecca would be back on the table.
    Only good that I feel would come out of action against Mecca is that Democracy would finally take hold in Islam and using Air force or Chemical weapons against
    political opponents would become a thing of the past and Muslims kids in the West would not feel like an odd ball and misfits as they all do now.
    The other good is it would only take away sacredness from now unholy Mecca. It may also render Hajj as a wasteful and unnecessary exercise.

    Harvard Medical School = King Edward Medical University
    Mt Sinai Medical School = Punjab Medical College
    MIT = University of Engineering and Technology (UET)

    Muslims = Ahmadis
    Boston = Lahore
    Lahore = Boston
    San Jose = Rabwah
