Muslim Gold Star family that scolded Trump helps raise money for Islamic advocacy group in Dallas
by Dianne Solis and Julieta Chiquillo
Early last year, he was another Gold Star father grieving the loss of his American son to the war in Iraq. Today, he himself is a star.
"My name is Khizr Khan. I am patriotic, American Muslim," he said to thundering applause Saturday night at a fundraiser for the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
Khan and his wife, Ghazala, became an enduring image of the 2016 presidential race after a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention. The Virginia couple's son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, died in Iraq in 2004 while protecting his troops from a car bomb.
