You would be shocked to know the number of high powered Americans in government, media, and business who have a Muslim background.
Some of them are “privately” Muslim, have changed their names, etc. Others have left Islam or have no interest in identifying as Muslim. Still others have Muslim parents or grandparents but were never raised as Muslim let alone with Islamic values.
The lesson is, we don’t need “Muslim bodies” in positions of influence. “Muslim bodies” are not going to change our condition. We need Muslim minds and hearts.
