By now, you know Ahmed’s story very well. He was arrested on Tuesday for taking a homemade clock to school after authorities thought it was a bomb.
Since then, support has been pouring for him. Some extremely high-profile people have also been tweeting to show their support.
Like Hillary Clinton.
Assumptions and fear don’t keep us safe—they hold us back. Ahmed, stay curious and keep building. https://t.co/ywrlHUw3g1— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 16, 2015
And even the POTUS.
People even started posing with their clocks to show their support for Ahmed.
And took their clocks to work.
And pointed out why the entire incident was ridiculous.
And the difference between a clock and a bomb.
In the middle of all the support, there were people who did not shy away from not showing their support. Like Taslima Nasreen.
It does not matter what your beliefs are but the legal system cannot function on the basis of assumptions.
