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 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.

      • Someone being a proper American has nothing to do with my reasons for not wanting Muslims to hold public office in America. Muslims believe in Sharia Law and their loyalty is to Sharia Law before it is to America. Sharia law allows children as young as 6 years of age to be married and marriage consummated as early as 9. Until age nine the man is allowed to “enjoy” the child in other ways. Sharia allows for any lie as long as it benefits Islam; Sharia allows for men to beat their wives and children as they are considered property; Sharia allows for female genitalia mutilation among those Muslims who choose to do so; Sharia law believes that eating of pork is unclean and therefore ask that others do not eat pork and in some circumstances ask that no advertising of pork be done in their presence or sight; Sharia law believes that dogs are unclean. Muslim taxi drivers refuse rides to anyone with a dog. Sharia Law believes that is is okay to kill anyone who is an infidel….which is anyone that does not believe in Islam. That is why I do not want Muslims holding public office. Check out what is happening in Michigan and Minnesota now in Muslim inhabited communities.

    • 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 !!!

They still live in mud huts. They come here and try to turn our country into the shithole country they come from. In the constitution it says “no Muslim will ever be allowed the Presidency of the United states. Obama slipped by lying, cheating and his racist ideological past hidden and covered up in sealed records. Islam should permanently be banned from the United states of America.

Sharia Law does not allow a 6 yr old to get married. Every Muslim doesn’t beliyin Sahria Law. Michigan Muslims are amazing. They’re community is clean, peaceful, and welcoming unlike Amerikkka.
