National ‘Meet a Muslim Day’ aimed at building acceptance

Published Sunday March 12

SAN JOSE — With signs that read “Ask me anything” and “Meet a Muslim,” dozens of young Muslim men and boys in the Bay Area and beyond stood in public places Sat in hopes of combating Islamophobia simply by talking with people.

It was something Iftikhar Khan had never done in his life. The 38-year-old San Jose resident brought his son, Rizwan, ten and neighbor, Raees Qadir,14. The trio stood on Paseo de San Antonio near the Fairmont Hotel downtown.

Khan on Sat commented he wasn’t aware of any security measures in place for the “Meet a Muslim” event but that he planned to remain vigilant.
