Remaja Muslim yg Dikriminalisasikan Karena Disangka Bikin Bom Dapat Dukungan Obama

Chirpified

Remaja umur 14 tahun yang bersekolah di Irving, Texas ini ditangkap Polisi, dibawa ke tahanan (detention center), diinterogasi, diambil sidik jarinya, serta diambil mugshot-nya (difoto bagian kepala dari depan dan samping, ala film2 kriminal Barat) gara-gara merancang jam yang dicurigai gurunya sebagai bom rakitan. Dia memiliki hobi sebagai penemu dan telah membuat beberapa barang elektronik sebelumnya. Tetapi ketika dia menunjukkan jam ciptaannya itu dia ditangkap. Tablet dan barang-barangnya juga disita. Sampai akhirnya orang tuanya datang ke detention center dan dia dibebaskan dari segala tduhan.

Kabar tentang kejadian ini merambah sosmed dan tersebar viral dan memicu emosi banyak orang. Bahwa remaja ini diperlakukan sebagai kriminal membuat banyak pengguna internet tidak terima. Mereka mendukung Ahmed dan mengutuk kejadian itu dengan hashtag #IStandwithAhmed. Riuhnya sosmed ini juga berkaitan dengan banyaknya stereotype negatif soal Muslim di Amerika berkaitan dengan sejumlah kejadian terorisme. Nama-nama besar Amerika seperti Presiden Barrack Obama dan Hillary Clinton juga memberikan dukungan untuk Ahmed.

President Obama @POTUS44

Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.

Absolutely tragic. When I was his age, I took everything apart too and tried to make things. dallasnews.com/news/community… #IStandWithAhmed

He was publicly accused and harassed, so he deserves public apologies from teachers, the district, and the police. #IStandWithAhmed

A 14 year old making a HOMEMADE CLOCK is labeled a terrorist just because he is Muslim? This is islamophobia at its finest #IStandWithAhmed

Just because it happened in Texas, don't think it couldn't happen anywhere. Fear and hatred isn't confined to one state. #IStandWithAhmed

Pernyataan yang dikeluarkan pihak sekolah hanya menyebutkan bahwa saat ini sekolah tengah bekerjasama dengan Kepolisian menangani kejadian tersebut, memastikan bahwa saat ini tidak ada ancaman keamanan di sekolah mereka, serta menyarankan orangtua agar memastikan anaknya tidak membawa barang terlarang ke sekolah.

Ahmed berterimakasih atas dukungan yang diterimanya dan berencana untuk pindah sekolah.
