Ever since 9-11 Muslim have said that everything had changed for them in America. But was that change discrimination by non-Muslims or by their own motivation to return to their faith.
First the alleged discrimination.
Muslim employment discrimination cases are rising at an alarming rate. The number of judicial opinions that were formerly issued in an entire decade are now coming out in a single month. Meanwhile, the rate of successful Muslim employment discrimination claims remains extremely low. In fact, the total number of judicial opinions in which courts have affirmed Muslim employment discrimination is 12. That is not a typo – the total count is a single dozen, in U.S. history. How many total claims? Around 300 resulting in court decisions. I believe that this astounding fact shows that there is a growing effort to perpetuate the myth that Muslims in the U.S. are treated poorly. The more interesting question is why this type of religious discrimination claim is on the rise. Perhaps we should look to the Muslim civil rights organizations for answers.
Then this piece of weird news. There have been quotes by young Muslim-American women who said that after 9-11 they felt they had to put on the hajib to show her solidarity with Muslims.
Rather than wrapping herself in an American flag, however, Azadeh Zainab Sharif, a Muslim student at San Francisco State University who grew up in San Diego but lived for several years in her father’s native Iran, decided it was time to bring her religious identity out in the open. After 9/11, she began wearing a hijab, the scarf worn by many Muslim women around the world.
For Sharif, now 22, putting the scarf on coincided with her spiritual awakening as a devout Muslim, but it was also a reaction to what she perceived as growing fear among Muslims in this country.
Whatâ€™s wrong with that picture? She fears for Muslims in the country soâ€¦.she does her best to dress like one?!
Self-proclaimed Muslims fly planes into our buildings, claim to do it for Allah and the first thing a young Muslim-American woman does is put on a symbol that identifies herself with the motivation for the terrorists? Would a Japanese-American the day after Pearl Harbor prance around in a kimono?
Then there was this short video clip promoting a segment on BridgesTV – the all Muslim cable channel that is working its way into American households across the country. In a running segment called â€˜Itâ€™s My Country tooâ€™, a Muslim rock band member laments the changes in non-Muslim attitudes towards Muslims in America.
In the short clip, he says that before 9-11 he would attract thousands of Muslims in Central Park to his concerts. Now none will come.
Why? He doesnâ€™t say. Is he hinting that a Muslim audience would be attacked in some manner? Or perhaps, rock music is not halal and his audience has voluntarily withdrawn their support for his band now that after 9-11 they, like the young Muslim-American woman, have had a â€œspiritual awakening as a devout Muslimâ€.
He goes on. He says heâ€™s fears a religious conflict in a country (America) that he loves as much as Pakistan. Again, hereâ€™s one of the prime reasons why Muslims can not adapt or assimilate into the countries they emigrate to. Their dual loyalty. Where in most cases, freely admitted, the loyalty to the Islamic nation â€“ or Ummah â€“ takes precedence.
Am I wrong or is there something screwy here?
