Ismaili muslim lady wins elections in USA

CHITRAL: An Afghan lady of the Hazara tribe, belonging to the Ismaili muslim sect originally hailing from the Baghlan province of Afghanistan has secured a seat in the House of Representatives from New Hampshire in the US, during the mid term elections. Safiya Wazir, aged 27 and mother of two defeated a very senior Democrat politician to bag the seat.

Safia first shifted from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan in the mid 90s and from there her parents migrated to the land of opportunities, the USA.

It may be mentioned here that Chitral district is traditionally a home to many Ismaili muslims who constitute almost 1/3 of the total population of the district. .. CN report, 06 Sep 2019

  1. A big achievement ! The American constitution could boast of providing for representation for foreign immigrants and that really makes the United States of America an all- embracing society.

  2. This is great example, the west is truly following the equality and pluralism which are the basic teaching of Islam. Our Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, is a role model and the society he has created now a role model for West. We are reading the teaching of Islam, but the west is practically doing. Wish one day we could see these types of changes in our country. We could accept each other, our thoughts can be broad and our society could be pluralistic.
    Unfortunately, we are losing the patience/ tolerance even in Chitral. When you see the social media you can see lots of hatred in term of political parties, cast groups, areas, sectarian discussion and many more. It is making an ordinary citizen like me so sad. It is all about lack of education, poverty, ignorance and lack of tolerance for each other. We pray that Allah Subhan wa Tala give us guidance for truly understand the Islam and the teaching of our holly Prophet PBUH.
