Wow! This tweet of Ziad has gone viral – with more than 13,000 retweets and over 27,000 likes.

‘I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted,’ Ziad told Mic.

‘I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability.’ For Ziad, his religion propagated the fight for justice.

He expressed so in his own words as,

“To me, to be Muslim is to be a BLM ally, and I honestly can’t imagine it being any other way for me.”

‘Furthermore, it’s critical to realise that one-fourth to one-third of the Muslim community in America are black… and to separate justice for Muslims from justice for the black community is to erase the realities of the plurality of our community.’

He wasn’t only subjected to praise, there were criticisms from some quarters too.

@ziadtheactivist @Stanford So if my son wrote America First 100x would my son get in or does he have to kiss clintons ass also?
