Aisha is the daughter of Pakistani immigrants.

Aisha founded the Georgia Muslim Voter Project in 2016. According to the Georgia Muslim Voter Project’s Facebook page, “The Georgia Muslim Voter Project aims to educate Georgia Muslims about civic engagement, registering new voters, and engaging the community through voting.”

Aisha is the Policy Director at Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta.

On March 24th 2016, the University of Georgia’s Amnesty International Group hosted an event called ‘Fight Night.’ Linda Sarsour was a speaker at this event. Aisha attended the event and was interviewed afterward. Aisha said, “I was blown away by the event. It was so great that Amnesty International was able to get Linda Sarsour to attend this event. It speaks volumes that a non-Muslim organization invited Linda to come speak because of how important it is for different groups to come together and fight for each other. The most powerful part of the event for me was hearing the stories from Linda and Raquel about different communities coming together and fighting for a shared cause, and sometimes not even a shared cause. The event only reinforced the need for collaboration and coalition building among different minority groups and reminded me that it is imperative for us to fight for others, instead of just our own communities.”

In 2017, Aisha appeared in an anti-Trump documentary called “The UnAmerican Struggle.” The description of the Documentary reads, “Bigotry is on the rise again in America, fueled by a President whose views are rooted in racism, misogyny, sexism, and xenophobia. His words and actions as a candidate, and now his policies as President, have breathed new life into an agenda of intolerance across the nation. This renewed struggle facing immigrants, Latinos, Muslims, black people, women, and transgender people is represented by frontline activist voices from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Diversity Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Black Lives Matter.”

Aisha was endorsed by Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder.

  1. The election of November 6 , show that
    Georgia is a RED state, the blue wave was
    evaporated by the election of all the states
    Position by the Republicans, All the elected
    state position was winning by the Republicans

  2. This is America, if you are unhappy with our ways then return to your own place of origin. We can bet if we went to your Country and raised gripes about the way it is ran, we risk getting our selves either put in jail or our heads cut off.

  3. And Hideous Hillary’s enthusiastic endorsement was the Kiss of Death for camel-jockey Yaqoob! Ha, ha, ha!

  4. Trump does not and is not impacting my ideals that muslims have no right in our government. They are members of a deadly death cult of Islam. They want to infiltrate our government from with in and impose their evil vile sharia laws. The laws are anti-American and will pretty much destroy the civil right of every American. I refuse to be governed by satan worshiping muslims. They call their cult a religion we have separation of religion and state

  5. Our country is a Nation under God and she is not legally sworn in by a Quran. This should be stopped right now. All should not be allowed to run for any office. Get them out!

  6. Hooray for Georgia…now for the rest of the country to follow suit. BTW, I can probably come up with tar, feathers and rails to run them back to their own countries.

  7. Americans need to all wake up and keep these people out of our gov’t. The law should be that you have to be a natural born citizen to run for any office, from a little town to the higher gov’t.

  8. Hopefully, the trend of defeating any Muslim who runs for any public office will continue forever. These America haters should never be elected EVER!

  9. The mere fact that she was backed by killary klington and heretic hold-her shows what kind of bullshit candidate she was!!!
    A LOSER!!!
    I would only hope that voters in her district see that she is against our President and defeat her everytime she comes out from under her rock and tries to get elected again!!!
