Father of Muslim soldier tells Trump: ‘You have sacrificed nothing.’

July 29, USA— American Muslims Khizr Khan and his wife told the story of their son who was a captain in the US Army at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and called out Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for disrespecting minorities in America.

The Khans, a Muslim family, immigrated to the United States from the United Arab Emirates.

The couple’s son, Humayun Khan was a 27- year-old soldier who died from a suicide bombing in Baghdad 12 years ago. His father said that if Trump is able to ban Muslims from America, his late son never would have been able to come to serve the country in the military.

“If it was up to Donald Trump, [Humayun] never would have been in America,” Khan said. “Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”

He continued: “Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with our future. Let me ask you: Have you even read the US Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy.” He pulled a copy of the Constitution from his pocket. “In this document, look for the words ‘liberty’ and ‘equal protection of law.’”

Earlier this month, Trump promised Congressional Republicans that he would defend “Article XII” of the Constitution, which doesn’t exist.

“Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America — you will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities,” Khan said.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Humayun Khan was a counselor to soldiers with plans to attend law school. He wanted a career advocating for veterans.

But on a June morning in 2004, Khan was inspecting the front gates of his Baquba, Iraq, camp with other soldiers when a car sped toward the group causing Khan to order the soldiers to hit the ground.

Khan took 10 steps toward the car as it rushed toward him signaling for it to stop with his right hand when the car blew up. It contained more than 200 pounds of explosives. Khan’s warning to other soldiers about the approaching vehicle had saved their lives.
