The Muslim News Reporter
"Ladies and gentleman we are being held momentarily by the train's dispatcher. We hope to be moving shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience." Boy if I had a dollar for every time I heard one of those announcements, I would've been one heck of a billionaire long ago! I alleged in my inner voice . "Ugh! We are so late!" Isaiah said as she puts both hands on her face gazing at her phone's time. "Wallah! Mr. Malak, is going to kill us!" Lehman said nodding." I looked at both of them and saw the patience melting away from their faces as they tap their feet on the ground repeatedly. "Man! We have been here for-" The stranger stops and looks at her phone and continues. "For 47 minutes!" Her eyes touched mine and I faked a smile. Her face was debatable. It seems as if she wanted to return the smile but the anger in her eyes was stopping her. A tall man with a blank face expression looked at me. He pushed me and I fell on a lady who pushed me off of her on to the floor. All eyes were on me. Lehman and Isaiah both looked with shocked expression as they helped me get up. "Excuse me!" I walked up to him. He didn't bother to look."Excuse me!" I yelled louder and he finally looks. "Why did you do that? " We don't need a terrorist on the train." "You ignorant man!" He raised an eye brow. "First of all, If I was a "terrorist", The last thing that would be on you brainless mind was to say it to me due to fear, second of all, Who are you to label me? What about the none Muslims! Ya'll kill all the time but do we label you?!" He looked like he wanted to apologize but I turned around to the lady who pushed me. "And as for you! Do you really think that I wanna touch you? Your not even worth looking at never mind being touched with your crocodile shedding skin!" I marched out the train and took a cab to work.
I stared at the window trying to get a hold of myself. Why do people have to be so cruel and ignorant? When will they stop labeling us?
