The unfair arrest of Muslim student Ahmed Mohammed in US sparked a rapid reaction of solidarity on Social Media. Ahmed was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school despite his insistence that it was simply a clock. The hashtag ‘IStandWithAhmed’ was created by a Texas college student Amneh Jafari, who went on to say that if Ahmed’s name was  John, he would have been labeled a ‘genius’ and not a ‘suspect.’ Within no time, several offers of internships and invites from Tech companies started flowing for Ahmed, including an invite to the White House.

Let’s see how world reacted to this incident:

child making a clock would get praise, not suspicion and arrested. It’s STUPID! The teacher obviously has a problem with minorites!
