Ghazala Khan appeared with her husband, Khizr Khan, at the Democratic National Convention to talk about their son, a Muslim American killed in combat in Iraq. Without a doubt, Mr. Khan delivered the most compelling and eloquent rebuking of Trump at the convention. 

However, Mrs. Khan was silent during the speech. Donald Trump would later attribute her silence to Islam. She wasn’t having it.

Mrs. Khan took to news outlets to directly address Mr. Trump’s bigoted comments. He criticized her for not speaking, but it’s not certain that he knew exactly what he was getting into.

“Sacrifice, I don’t think he knows the meaning of sacrifice… Because when I was standing there, all America felt my pain. Without saying a single word. Everybody felt that pain… I am very upset when I heard when he said that I didn’t say anything. I was in pain… If you were in pain you fight or you don’t say anything, I’m not a fighter, I can’t fight. So the best thing I do was quiet.”

Users on Twitter immediately jumped to Khan’s defense with praise for her courageous response.
