Countering Islamophobia, Muslim Father and Son Go to US Congress
by Cindy Saine
Caldoun Abuhakel and his 12-year-old son, Baraa, traveled from their Minnesota home to Washington, D.C., to meet with members of Congress and key staffers.
Some 300 Muslim-Americans from across the United States gathered Monday on Capitol Hill to talk with their representatives about Muslim-American issues.
Baraa told VOA that he has experienced taunting at school, when other kids told him to "stop being so Muslim, stop being so terrorist."
But he says his younger brother, Muhamad, is frightened and upset by the anti-Muslim rhetoric coming from Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
