However, shaming through symbolic Muslim ritual was not enough. Rizwan saw something, so he said something.
Rizwan travels along and attempts to meet President Bush, but instead finds himself arrested under the suspicion of terrorism. To review, if you see something you should say something, because later it might get you out of the clutches of racially motivated internment.

The drama continues after Khan's release—which, by the way, has everyone in America psyched. We learn that an epic hurricane is battering the small town in Georgia where Jenny and Joel live. Khan braves the elements and travels to the epicenter of the storm where he finds much tragedy. Jenny and Joel are safe and seeking refuge in the church. In the end, Khan single-handedly saves small-town Georgia; his post-internment stardom inspires Muslims from all over the country to brave the storm and help.
In short, the Muslims band together to help systematically disenfranchised communities when the American state actors will not. An awesome example of Muslim solidarity with other communities of color, or more Muslims-are-good-people-too pandering? Either way, the bad Muslims are quick to spoil the good Muslim's efforts—Rizwan is stabbed by a supporter of the "terrorist" who he had arrested.
In the end, Rizwan is OK. Mandira is back and soon enough he will meet President Obama—who along with the rest of America knows Khan is not a terrorist.
In America, the reaction to the film has focused on some interest in understanding how India sees America—which after viewing the film, one can understand America as deeply flawed. Yet at the same time, the film reveals much about India and its own crisis around the Muslim question and the question of Pakistan in the specter of the Mumbai attacks in Unfortunately, the conversation based on this film does not get us very far—for the terrorists are still inexplicably just that—terrorists.
The film's chorus then is trapped to these identities that we never explain—nor are we able to construct Muslim identity without? However, if we edit the adage down to "My Name Is Khan"—to the simple reminder of Muslim-ness, or a first attempt at such a representation, the spaces where the film and real-life meet are far more exciting and hopeful. How can an event be at once ordinary and extraordinary, simultaneously decisive and indecisive? The victory of Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party BJP in the Indian parliamentary elections of is indeed a watershed moment; for the first time in the history of independent India, it will be ruled exclusively by a Hindu supremacist party.

When Samar first came to Business Bravery, it was through a short course we were running on creative business growth. Samar felt she needed more support than through a course, and once we spoke on a free Zoom call, we knew instantly that we would be a great fit to work together. Samar is a highly ambitious wedding planner who was stuck. Her business was 10 years old when we first met and she had achieved a level of success but her growth had stagnated.
Over the course of the last 18 months, we have completely rebranded Samar's business, and relaunched it with new packages and a new streamlined offer. Samar's business has gone from strength to strength and she is regularly featured as a leading Destination Wedding Planner in global events, and has become one of the mentors in the Business Bravery Mastermind, sharing her wisdom on her journey with other growing business owners looking to achieve similar success.
Instead, they want a proven strategy to shortcut their success and just want someone to give them a plan to make it happen. An amazing system that works. I've worked with a lot of consultants over the years on branding, building sales funnels, writing books, launching a podcast, having a video tip series, and none of them understood the wedding industry, the luxury space or the creative community until I started working with Kathryn.
Kathryn and her team completely nailed it for me! They helped me repackage my content, better organise my content strategy, my messaging, and get my funnels working! Having the right team and a strategy in place with someone to hold you accountable with deadlines, is such a breath of fresh air!
Kathryn does exactly what she says she is going to do.
