Muslim Woman Wins Georgia House District 97 Democratic Primary

Aisha Yaqoob is running to represent the 97th House District in the Georgia House of Representatives. Aisha is muslim, an activist and the daughter of Pakistani immigrants.

According to Aisha’s website:

Aisha is a professional advocate for immigrant rights at the state Capitol, working with legislators on both sides of the aisle to push for civil rights for immigrants and people of color. As policy director for a nonprofit legal and advocacy center, Aisha monitors local, state, and federal policies that affect immigrants and works to fight for their rights.

Aisha is passionate about voting rights, access to healthcare and education, and immigration. She believes in upholding the civil rights and civil liberties for all people, especially those whom have been historically underrepresented.

On Aisha’s website it also states:

While in graduate school Aisha founded the Georgia Muslim Voter Project, an organization whose mission is to increase voter turnout in the American Muslim community. In 2016 she and her team helped to increase voter turnout across Georgia in a community that has historically rarely participated in the electoral process.

She earned a 40 Under 40 Georgia Muslim Award from the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta (October 2016) and the Rising Star Community Champion Award from Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta (October 2016). In 2015, Aisha earned a commendation from the Georgia General Assembly for work in the Georgia Muslim Community.

On May 23rd Aisha won the primary election. In a recent Facebook post she wrote:

#TeamAisha is amazing! We did it. Thank you to my wonderful campaign team and volunteers for their hard work leading up to yesterday’s historic campaign victory. I am proud to be the Democratic nominee for the 97th House District and am fired up for the challenge come November.

To everyone that voted for me: thank you! Thank you for believing in this bright-eyed, first-time candidate. Thank you for taking a stand against hate and deciding that Gwinnett is ready for a change. Thank you for showing up! 

This was TRULY a team victory and I owe it all to my friends, family, and volunteers for their tireless work. There is so much more work to be done and we will do it, together. We will run a grassroots, positive, and energetic campaign this fall!

If you’d like to join #TeamAisha, we’d love to have you! Sign up to volunteer on VoteAisha.com or donate to support our efforts in the coming months.

With lots of love and appreciation, Aisha

    • “unChristian….UNAMERICAN”? As if not being Christian were a bad thing? As if one cannot be a proper American without being a Christian? This is typical of the arrogance / ignorance / bigotry of all theists. Doesn’t matter which religion you blindly follow. You’re still blind.

      • This country was founded on Christian beliefs, and we do not want this country turned to and Islam country and that is exactly what these Muslim people are here for. WAKE UP!

      • This the problem with your thinking and understanding of Muslims “religion”. Their way of life includes Sharia Law, which to them is greater than any law this country has. Being ignorant of their belief system will hurt this country totally! Sharia Law does not believe in freedoms especially to gays, women and any other religion! They live usually in theocracy forms of government. You and others like you need to get educated!

      • I’d rather blindly follow the teachings of the Bible and of Christ than the teaching of Allah that tells you to go out and kill those that don’t believe like you do. Allah tells them it’s okay to have more than one wife and it’s okay to beat them.

    • It is obvious on why she wants all of these rights for immigrants that did not work in this country to deserve any of them. Muslims especially want medical rights because they are breeding like rats over here and have no use for abortion clinics because their main agenda is to over populate every other race in this country eventually. Wake up America !!!

      • Remember Georgia, and a lot of southern states voted for Demonic cats yrs back. Georgia is ranked 48 or 9th in education, plus we are having thousands of illegals coming here, jobs are somewhat good, Thank You, Donald. Also the Media is not on our side, filled with hate and discontent, all of the stations are liberal, and hate christians, we are in for a battle Folks, we can win, only if Georgians and Americans WAKE UP. Our schools in Ga, are going to hell in a hand basket. You have to feel sorry for Trump, he’s in the Slime pit, worse than a Swamp, its a SEWER PIT. I THINK THE DEVIL IS WORKING OVERTIME TO DESTROY GODS PEOPLE, BUT IF WE PRAY TO GOD, HE WILL LISTEN, GOD’S PEOPLE WILL NOT FAIL, AND THAT’S THE WAY I SEE IT. THAT’S MY OPEN, TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK.

  1. It’s sad she got this far, but keep your panties on. She is the no go candidate for that district with no hope of getting elected.
    But this highlights that Republicans better get off their ass and start backing Trump and conservatives.

  2. She will not win & if she does, her ENTIRE background needs to be investigated.
    Was her father ever in the military, was he or is he connected to any terrorist cell or organization?
    What does her entire family do for work?
    Investigate EVERYTHING.

  5. I See America Being Handed Over, Piece By Piece, & I See Our Courts, Schools, Hospitals, & Town Councils, Being Over Run With
    Middle Eastern Muslims Who Are Forcing Their Culture, Their Ways, Their Islamic Ways On Our People! I Do Not Believe All Muslims Are Bad! We Have Some Who Are Peaceful & Aren’t Trying To Force Their
    Ways On Our Legal Citizens, But I See Such A Sudden Influx Of
    Muslims Who Are Here & Making Trouble! Too Many Of Our Little Girls
    6 or 7 Yrs. Old Are Being Raped By These Muslim Refugees, Teachers
    Are Forcing Our School Kids To Convert To Islam Without Parental
    Consent, They Demand Everything Be Their Way! They’re Breaking Our Laws & Physically Hurting People! What Bothers Me Most Is That
    We Are Losing Our Country To These People & So Many Americans
    Aren’t Even Tuned Into What’s Happening Because They’re Busy With
    Their Lives! Some Day Soon, We’re Probably Going To Wake Up &
    Find That This Isn’t The United States of America, Anymore, But Of
    Muslim Rule! The Democrats Have Had A Big Hand In Helping This To
    Happen! If We Lose Our Country, It Will Be On The Dems, Their Fault!

    • It will be all of our faults for allowing it to happen. We just sit back and think there is nothing we can do but we are wrong. All politicians have phone numbers in D.C. We can blow up their phones with complaints. Since when can a person from another country come over here and legally run for public office let alone hold one?

  6. This woman aligns herself with people like Linda Sarsour a racist, hateful, Anti-American government figure that disquises her true intentions under the guise of Tolerance. Georgians need be very careful and Not let this woman into a government position.

  10. The 97th District is a strongly Republican district. Winning the Democrat Party Primary is one thing, winning the General election in November is another.

    • This is what is coming in the future. Muslims not all, want total control of this country. In parts of Michigan Sharia law is in effect per my rep, from Ga. This is scary to me, Muslims breed 8 to 10 kids, destroy our system, and they take over in the end and our country is GONE from Americans who fought and died. I’m afraid Sad days are coming.
