A Brilliant Response To Racism – True Story From UK !

aminurWhat would you do if a man were to abuse you because of the color of your skin or your country of origin or the religion you belong to ? Most of us would be very angry or sad or go to the extent of insulting back, but what Aminur Chowdhury did to a racist British citizen was the exact opposite and absolutely amazing.

On May 14, Aminur Chowdhury was racially insulted by Ben Gallon, a homeless British citizen at the time.

But Mr Chowdhury decided to reform Ben through an innovative approach by having a drink and a chat with his assailant, eventually helping Mr Gallon to turn his life around.

Mr Chowdhury said: “Initially I turned the other cheek, but then I was challenging Ben about what he had said to me, I stopped and had a chat with him for about 15 minutes.”

After speaking to Ben, Mr Chowdhury said he could help him find a job and the pair exchanged contact details. At first, Ben thought he was only being polite about the job offer but he says he got a call from him the next day with a job interview.

He said: “The next day he gave me a call, said ‘can I come pick you up Ben, I’ve got an interview for you’. That same day, he came round to get me, drove me down to the place on Canal Road and then within ten minutes I had been offered the job.”

Mr Chowdhury’s determination to help Ben did not stop there; he also assisted him in finding an apartment to rent in Bradford.

Ben regretting his actions said: “There was no justification for me using those words. Kudos to him for forgiving me, I regret it. A positive thing has happened out of this situation.

“I’ve learned my lesson. What I said was completely out of character for me, I’m not a racist. Things are starting to look up for me. I’ve started the job and it’s fantastic.”

Mr. Chowdhury believes that tolerance is the best response to any form of hate and racism. He believes that the more love you show, the more the others will love you.

    This happened because the assailant was poor and needy.

    Try doing the same in the middle east you will run out of cheeks even if you have a 1000.

    They just don’t stop shouting until either you walk away, keep apologizing again and again even if he should be the one apologizing, or start shouting back at the same tone and non-senseness…

    That’s how Islam spread in Southeast Asia. The most populated Islamic region in the world. Mosltly, simple Yemani merchants, that examplified Islam in action and not words. The indigenous people started asking these merchants what religion do they follow, and converted to Islam by example.

    Do the Muslims do that today? ISIS and their supporters in the Muslim world, do just the opposite today. Islam is still spreading due to Allah’s will, and not Muslim actions.

    Islam today only exists in sectertian form, and the true Islam is being hijacked by these Wahabi Cult followers in many parts of the Islamic world. All Muslims in the world have to pay for this sick Wahabi Cult. When are we going to wake up?

    I Would Call This Human Religion Which All of Us Have, But Our Ego Does Not Allow Us To Do What This Noble Soul Has Done. God Bless Him And His Parents For Helping Him In His Upbringing Days, Which Proved Through This Incident.

    The act of Mr.Chowdry is matching to what Allah said in Holy Quran: “Innallah Ma’as Saabreen” that means “Certainly God is with people who have patient”. But there is a limit.
