Donald Trump has barely completed a fortnight in office as the US president and there is already much turmoil and confusion in the Muslim world especially in the wake of the ban on the entry of citizens from seven Islamic nations. Trump recently signed an executive order that bans the entry of immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations, including Syria, into the US that evoked widespread panic among travellers. Facing severe criticism for his decision – both within the US as well as elsewhere – Trump took to Twitter once again to justify barring refugees from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen for a period of 120 days. The ban on refugees from Syria is indefinite. “Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting,” he wrote on his Twitter handle, adding that the world is in a horrible mess. Mean while IN DAMASCUS, SYRIA a seven-year-old Syrian girl Bana Alabed — who has garnered worldwide attention by tweeting about her life in Aleppo in Syria — asked the US President Donald Trump in a fresh video, “Have you ever had no food, no water for 24 hours? Just think of refugees and the children of Syria.”
Trump had tweeted where in he had argued that the intention of his immigration ban was “about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!” Alabed responded by asking: “Am I a terrorist?” She also added that banning refugees is very bad. She suggested Mr.Trump to make other countries peaceful instead of banning them from America . Alabed has been posting, with her mother Fatemah’s help, heart-rending and emotionally strong tweets about life in the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo. Alabed and her mother have garnered more than 366,000 followers since September 2016 as they tweet regularly about war in Aleppo, including the story of her house being destroyed.
Social media though again proved to play a vital role in raising curtains over the truth.
