India Times (Gurgaon, Haryana), December 9, 2008

Asking the US President-elect to take oath of the office in his full name, Barack Hussain Obama, a leading Muslim community leader has said this will help in erasing “Islamophobia” from the minds of people.

Addressing a public meeting after Eid-ul-Zuha prayers here yesterday, Sheik Ubaid has requested US President-elect to take oath of the office using his full name Barack Hussain Obama and bury “Islamophobia” in the “cemetery of other social evils.”

The leader asked Obama to launch a new chapter in the American history in which “racism” and “sexism” are stamped out of public life and human rights of all are respected.

He also said that with “anti-Semitism” already erased from the country, the other major social ill to be defeated is “Islamophobia”.

“Eid is a joyous occasion and this year, Muslim has much more to celebrate as Obama, whom they had supported, has been elected to lead the United States,” the community leader said.
