European Commission against Islamophobia: “This fight is not for one group: it is about the society that we want, based on non-discrimination”
Zainab Khan, mentor of Muslim Americans: “Muslims are not x, y and z. We are not a monolith”
Zainab Khan defines herself as “a human being” who happens to be a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a mentor, a Muslim… Someone for whom her heritage is “very important, because that’s the story I’m able to preserve”. Her father was from Afghanistan, her mother was Indo-Pakistani and she was born and raised in the US, so she feels like a “third spacer”.
