Skip to comments.Muslim student pitches a fit over these awesome Halloween costumes [school agrees with student]
Posted on 11/09/2013 11:06:09 AM PST by grundle
A controversy has broken out at Washington University in St. Louis over a Facebook photo apparently showing five students dressed up for Halloween as a Navy SEAL team capturing Osama bin Laden with garish neon water guns.
The photo was originally posted on Facebook on Oct. 30 with the title Halloween 13 Amurrica!! reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The photo shows three dudes in camouflage attire surrounding a kid also in camo garb who is sporting a long, fake beard and turban. Theres also a guy in the background holding up an American flag.
Washington University student Mahroh Jahangiri later objected to the photo because she views mimicking the American militarys killing of Osama bin Laden as a hateful Muslim stereotype.
As a Muslim-American who has been subjected to taunts of dirty paki and get the fuck out of WU and America on this campus, the reasons why this photo are offensive are painfully obvious and represent a broader, more aggressive (and apparently violent) Islamophobia rampant here at WashU and in the United States, Jahangiri has explained on her Facebook page.
This is disgusting and cannot be tolerated on this campus.
School officials at Wash. U. have sided earnestly with Jahangiri.
No fewer than three high-ranking functionaries at the school including the chancellor, Mark S. Wrighton, signed a statement saying they are disappointed and saddened about the awesome Halloween stunt, notes the Post-Dispatch. The statement called the image entirely inconsistent with who we are as an institution, our values and the way in which we engage in the world around us.

Why is the school agreeing with the Muslim student instead of defending the freedom of expression of the students in the costumes?
Great costume! What is WRONG with people?
Yes, that's the point you twit. Now STFU.
this makes the school look like a pack of UNCTUOUS BUMPKINS
those are SUPER SOAKER squirt guns.....fer crying out loud!
OH NO horror of horrors somebody might get WET!!
Washington University in St. Louis has fallen a long way towards political correctness and liberalism from the time my cousin attended where for an engineering degree. From there he worked for Monsanto.
Don’t want to offend the dirty paki is my guess
Should have dressed up as transvestites instead. Then they would be celebrated.
Eff you, Jahangiri, and the islamists you rode in with.
>>Why is the school agreeing with the Muslim student instead of defending the freedom of expression of the students in the costumes?
Yep. They are definitely in the wrong on this one. Why are they even allowed to be in college? They might even be getting real degrees or in ROTC! Animals!
They needed a pig or some pork in there to really make the theme work. Maybe some bacon ‘flames’ coming from the barrels of the nerf guns.
Until you can point to a "Paki's need not apply" help wanted sign I'm not going to feel sorry for you. Think of it as cultural hazing, sweetheart. My ancestors had it much worse than you but survived and prospered in this great nation once they lost their accents and went out of their way to be assimilated into American culture.
One has to wonder if these “high-ranking functionaries” are capable of understanding the crisis of 9/11.
When are going to take our country back from these hateful scum?
This photo makes a costume of the lives of the thousands of civilian Muslim men who have been murdered during our War on Terror and the countless others who have been mutilated, robbed, and stabbed to death in hate crimes across the United States, she also rants.
Thousands murdered since 9/11 ?
Countless others robbed and stabbed ?
She is thinking of her home country , Pakistan
NOT the U.S.A.
Unfortunately we protect these s#itheads .
Lady , just go home . If you were born here , please
migrate right on back to your ancestral homeland
Why is a Muslim woman going to college? She should be stoned to death.
The worm is turning.
checked out washington university st louis committed to diversity for students from 100 countries. globalism. cannot offend the diverse student body - many of the professors are now internationals. trained elsewhere and part of the diverse faculty.
Its time for the complaining Muslims who are always so upset with our freedom and sense of humor to go back to there country and see how wonderful life can be.
Well the only people they would offend would be Islamic terrorists so is this student admitted she is one?
Yes this photo is offensive. Water guns aren’t going to do anything to him. Proper firearms like an AK-47 should have been used.
I didn't click the link so I didn't see that load of horse apples before. This beotch is an "activist." I wonder what cell she's active with?
Send in the ATF!
So, Mahroh. If you dislike the United States so much, why did you — or was it your parents? — come here?
I marvel at the chutzpah of moslems who profess to hate the west in general, and the United States in particular, yet come over in droves. Since they hate us so much, and clearly do not want to assimilate, they must be coming for another, insidious reason. And I think we know what that is.
dirty paki??? Seriously?
Interesting, American frat boys in the Midwest using British slang.
Camel jockey, dune coon, haji, Jackie the Iraqi, Arab (pronounced “A”-rab), Jawas, bad guys, goat humpers, sand n***ers, etc etc. the slurs used by grunts are endless, entertaining, usually racial rather than political... But what American calls them a “Paki”?
That’d be about as American as referring to a Pakistani as “Asian”. The girl is making my Pinocchio meter register some lies.
They came here to turn the US into a Muslim country.
look at the facebooks groups she subscribes to
we need to stop giving visas to any non-Christian middle easterners . We do not need them or their beliefs in our country , infesting our society .
They need to remain in their own countries , educate there and practice their militant feminist islamicism there .
Good luck !
> School officials at Wash. U. have sided earnestly with Jahangiri.
Uh, er,...they meant sidestepped a lawsuit by iding with JahNgiri
Apparently, Jahangiri had no coments about the treatment of Christians in Pakistan and other Moslem majority nations.
“Eff you, Jahangiri, and the islamists you rode in with.”
And the goats you rode in on.
The only reasons the Muslim student would be offended are if she (1) admired Bin Laden and (2) viewed him as a representative Muslim.
Her Facebook page is “temporarily” down. Probably the NSA giving her an assist on behalf of the WH...
“Paki, a derogatory term for a person from South Asia (particularly Pakistan), mainly used in the United Kingdom”
I didn’t realize St Louis was so culturally British. My bloomer, don’t I feel the prat? Gobsmacked I am.
There will never be enough antipathy for Islam in this country to suit me. No Muslim will ever be my countryman. I’ll never trust one...ever. Islam is the mortal enemy of Western civilization and has been for nearly fourteen centuries. There will never be a peaceful coexistence.
What this student has confirmed is that Osama is actually mainstream Islam, not the fringe minority they want us to believe. He is a valid, valued, model example of a Mooselimb, and that is why she is offended, and the faculty agrees. So can we stop pretending now that there is any difference between her, Osama and all the others?
The NSA is watching her and DHS and FBI are on top of it. /s
"Ray Stevens - Osama (Yo' Mama)"
Send in the fashion police!
I thought it was pretty funny. I guess I’m a hater. :-)
The left always agree with the approved victim group members
Islam. Islam and liberalism were separated at birth, but now they have found themselves. Kind of like in those Facebook reunions when long lost siblings realize that they only lived a couple of miles from each other for their whole lives. In this case it was different wings within the same mental hospital.
Based on her comments she has sympathy towards islamic terrorists.
Hope the NSA are listening closely to her phone calls/s
The picture was taken in what appears to be an attic which most likely wasn’t a university owned building. So, the university shouldn’t have any say on the subject. If Miss OBL doesn’t like America, she’s free to take the next plane back to Pakistan.
