Man Committed Sick Act Toward Top Female Trump Official, Now This Is Happening

Some people do not understand that having strong beliefs does not entitle then to ignore the law. Once case in point is the recent arrest of a well-known political activist for assault of new US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

According to various sources, Bilal Ahmed Askaryar has been charged with assault. It seems the arrest came after a rather over the top effort to block Secretary DeVos and her team from entering a public school in the Washington DC area.

Although it is not clear exactly whom Askaryar is charged with assaulting, legal documents suggest that Askaryar has pled not guilty to the charges. He has not yet commented on the charges or what his motives were in the attack on Sec. DeVos

Keep in mind that Askaryar is a human rights activist of some renown in the progressive community. In fact, he authored an article for NPR earlier this year where he tells the gripping story of fleeing Afghanistan with his family in the 1990s.

The article goes on to describe how he and his family were eventually granted asylum in the U.S. Askaryar explains that after finding a home and jobs, he and his family decided to become US citizens back in 2000.

He wrote a similar story about his and his family’s experiences as refugees to the Washington Blade, the gay media outlet based in the nation’s capital. Askaryar emphasizes his family's opposition to Soviet imperialism and to the Taliban in both of these articles.

Of interest, another publication from September 2011 offers a description of Askaryar's experience as an Afghani-American in the US after the 9/11 attacks. The attacks on US soil were, of course, masterminded by Osama Bin Laden from Afghanistan, and Bin Laden was protected by the hard-line Muslim Taliban regime that had driven Askaryar and his family away from the country.
