I am a Muslim and I am a Human!
Now is the time to stop judging talent by their religion.
- Talented Muslim Professionals
- Positive change for the Muslim society
- Four Muslim professionals namely Amani-Al Khatahtbeh, Mamoon Hamid, Nadeem Mazen and Anousheh Ansari have created groundbreaking records defying the general perception against Muslims.
For millions of people, the word Islam runs jitters through them. However, is it logical to assume that all Muslims are terrorists? Just like not all humans are bad, so is with Muslims. Fed up with the Muslim hate rule, four professionals namely Amani-Al Khatahtbeh, Mamoon Hamid, Nadeem Mazen and Anousheh Ansari set their strategies to change the world’s perception about Muslims.
Amani-Al Khatahtbeh started her journey to develop a media powerhouse for Muslim women to create an alternative in the ever-growing cluttered mainstream media. Run by 23-year-old Al-Khatahtbeh along with seven volunteer editors and more than 30 contributing writers, her media platform MuslimGirl.net covers not only the simple straightforward news, but also controversial issues.
On a similar note, Mamoom Hamid, Co-founder and General Partner at Social+Capital, an early stage Venture Capital firm that funds breakthrough healthcare, education, financial services, mobile, and enterprise software companies connects with people over love of technology as against the religion.
Entrepreneur Nadeem Mazen, the Cambridge city councilor faced awkward moments when people mixed his Muslim identity with American politics. However, he’s broken through the stereotypical society practicing the good from his religion into politics.
Anousheh Ansari, the no ordinary sightseer is the only Muslim women to escape the bounds of Earth to float in the International Space. While her identity was the most important disadvantage on her application form, she fought the differences and today is a live example of Muslim women achieving their goals.
Just like all other humans, Muslims are capable of positive accomplishments too. Hence, stop Muslim hate, they’re human beings too!
