DNC speaker who took the US by storm, Khizr Khan, warns of a grave danger to American Muslim
He made the statement while speaking at the annual gathering of the Islamic Society of North America convention in Rosemont, Illinois, where Khizr Khan and his wife Ghazala Khan were presented with the 'Outstanding Ambassadors of Islam Award'.
In his address to the largest American Muslim gathering, Khan said that few people believe the assault against Islam and anti-Muslim rhetoric will end in November, they are mistaken, it is beyond elections.
He urged the American Muslim community to play a key role to shape the US society at this time of chaos, further adding "The ink of the pen of the scholars is more sacred than the blood of the martyrs."
"We want you to teach us how to condemn violence. We are looking towards you to teach us how to deal with this chaos that is generated locally. How to participate in this process, how to be the citizen of democracy," he went on to say.
On the occasion, his wife Ghazala Khan also thanked the audiences for the respects.
"I'm so grateful for all of you and all of America and all of the world, I feel so close to you guys ... I have given one son and got this many back," she said.
