Ghazala Khan

Ghazala Khan is the mother of of Captain Humayun Khan who was one of 14 American Muslims who died serving the United States of America in the ten years after the September 11 attacks.

She is married to Khizr Khan.

Ghazala Khan stood beside her husband when he spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention on July 28th, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her husband criticized Donald Trump's rhetoric about Muslims. Trump retorted that Ghazala did not speak throughout the entire Convention, and said it symbolizes the lack of women's rights in Islam. He said to The New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, "I'd like to hear his wife say something." [undefined] He also said to ABC News'George Stephanopoulos:

“I saw him.

He was, you know, very emotional.

And probably–looked like a nice guy to me.

His wife uh, if you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say.

She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say.

You tell me.

But plenty of people have written that.

She was extremely quiet.

And it looked like she had nothing to say.

A lot of people have said that.

And personally, I watched him, I wish him the best of luck.”


Ghazala penned an op-ed for Washington Post to respond to Trump. [1]
