When Rahatul Ashikim Khan was a student at the University of Texas, did anyone know or care that he was a jihadi? Did anyone ever raise concerns about his beliefs and activities? Of course not: that would have been “Islamophobic.”
“Ex-UT student gets 10 years in prison for aiding terrorists,” Statesman, September 25, 2015:
More than a year after he pleaded guilty to a charge of aiding overseas terrorists, Rahatul Ashikim Khan, a former University of Texas student, was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison.
Khan, 24, became the second of two young men convicted in Austin of the rare federal offense after admitting he connected an undercover agent with co-conspirators recruiting jihadi fighters to Somalia. His plea in July followed that of Michael Todd Wolfe, a Houston native, who confessed he had plans to travel to Syria to engage in jihad himself.
