Texas has become the modern Wild World where anything is possible. In Pearland Texas, a substitute teacher called the police fearing that her student, a six year old Muslim child with Down Syndrome, Mohammad Suleiman—was a terrorist.
According to Fox 26 Houston, the teacher told the police that Mohammad kept repeating the words “Allah” and “boom boom boom.”
“I went to the principal’s office and she told me [Mohammad] makes full sentences. He speaks…It’s not true, he doesn’t speak at all,” said Maher Suleiman, Mohammed’s father. Mohammed was born with Down syndrome chromosome 21.
That phone call prompted a police investigation as well as a Child Protective Services investigation into the Suleiman family.
“This is so stupid. This is discrimination actually. It’s not implied discrimination, it’s 100% discrimination,” Maher says about the school calling his son a terrorist.
“The last three to four weeks have been the hardest of my life,” said Maher Suleiman. “My wife and kids were crying a few days ago, and I told them everything is fine.”
