Khans thank Islamic convention attendees, warn 'assault' on community will outlast election
by Grace Wong
The couple who lost a son in the Iraq War and were attacked by Donald Trump after their appearance at the Democratic National Convention this summer on Saturday thanked those at a national Islamic convention for their support but warned the "assault" on the Muslim community won't end with the November election.
Khizr Khan and his wife, Ghazala, whose son, Capt. Humayan Khan, was killed in 2004 in Iraq, spoke to the annual Islamic Society of North America convention in Rosemont on Saturday afternoon.
Khan praised Muslim leaders for being a voice for the community and also thanked the scholars and mentors in his life.
