Jim Hoft, “the Gateway Pundit,” reported Friday that Khizr Khan claimed GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump is up against divine intervention from Allah.
Khan — the father of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, killed in 2004 serving in Baqubah, Iraq — told the Pakistani news service Dunya News that Allah works to make people, such as Trump, make mistakes in public in order to publicly discredit them forever.
Speaking on the Nuqta-e-Nazar program, Khan, a Muslim lawyer and widely-cited expert on Sharia law, told viewers he is overcome by emotion when speaking in public, but when he spoke before the Democratic National Convention July 27 in Philadelphia, the words just came to him because he was in tune with what nature wanted him to do.
During his speech, Khan turned tables on conservatives, who often carry and gesture with pocket copies of the U.S. Constitution. Khan himself pulled out a pocket copy of the Constitution and asked if Trump, himself, had ever read it. He then told the nominee from the podium that Trump could borrow his copy. “I showed the constitution only because I wanted to remind people that nobody could be discriminated against in the name of religion,” he told the host.
