When the country is trying hard to persuade the Muslim world that American policies aren’t driven by anti-Muslim bias, arrest of 14-year-old 9th grader Ahmed Mohamed on Monday seemingly confirmed the Muslim world’s worst fears about the United States —that America is deeply hostile to Muslims and the law enforcement officials profile Muslims and their children as bomb-wielding terrorists.

Ahmed was arrested at his high school in Irving, Texas, after he brought a homemade clock to class to impress his new teachers. Though he repeatedly said his device was merely a homemade clock, he was handcuffed “for his safety and for the safety of the officers” and taken to a juvenile detention center. The device was confiscated as “evidence” as an English teacher suspected it was a bomb.

Although, Irving’s police chief announced Wednesday that charges won’t be filed against Ahmed as “there’s no evidence to support the perception he intended to create alarm”, his father Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, suggested the suspicion and arrest were racially motivated. “His name is Mohamed and because of Sept. 11, I think my son got mistreated,” he said.

While the Internet promptly exploded in support for the teenager under the hashtag #IStandWithAhmed, one tweet from a blogger from Pakistan shows the double standard of what Texas law enforcement views as threatening.

The tweet shows Ahmed in handcuffs as police led him out of his high school. On the right are two white, gun-holding children who showed up with other open carry activists at a 2014 arts festival in Fort Worth, Texas. Neither the children nor other members of the group were arrested.

The sentiments were similar on Twitter from across the world.

  1. The arrest of Ahmed has absolutely nothing to do with fear; it was all prejudism. What is “normal” procedure when there is a suspicion that an item might be a bomb? You immediately evacuate the building/surrounding area and call in the bomb squad.

  2. For First it’s a Fraud when taking Inside of Alarm Clock Brought in shop, then getting a electronics from it, and Installing them into Pencil BOX. It’s a Fraud not an invention or any close to engineering skills.
    The Wow factor was that’s he is Muslim and the Box Clock is relay similar to home made Suitcase timer bomb. Just add Detonator and Payload.

    In age of 12 with my Brothers we wrote Assembler Code for Motorola 6510 witch was a CPU of our first Computer “Commodore C64” and that was 6 mounts after we get if on a Christmas. first 5 mounts we just Play 🙂
    After next flew years i know Asm, C C++,Java, and many more, wrote code for electronics I design ( Atmel, Microchip, Renesas, ARM ) and I didn’t think I’m in any way special, because lots of kids i know did, similar think.
    I went to Uni finish it,And I still need to prove I really can code to get good work.

    He is offered a MIT after he was wrongly accused of bulging a Suit Case Bomb.
    Not on a skill base just on a popularity contest. Great !!!

  3. I feel I need to add Ahmed DID NOT even make the “clock” someone else made it (goggle it) – which makes you question his motive for bring it to school.

  4. Cops can arrest you if you look like a suspect muslims are just want to make it look like a big deal so every stuped american can fall for it.
