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?
