Muslim teen arrested after Texas teachers mistake homemade clock for bomb

A Muslim whiz kid was arrested Monday after his teachers mistook a harmless digital clock he made for a bomb, sparking concerns about Islamophobia in Texas.

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, brought the clock into MacArthur High School to show his engineering teacher his skill with technology — the ninth-grader builds his own radios in his spare time, the Dallas Morning News reported.

“Here in high school, none of the teachers know what I can do,” Ahmed told the paper from his home in Irving, about 10 miles west of Dallas.

He decided to show them: he built a clock using a tiger hologram pencil case and a circuit board.

CaseClosed2: I think the teacher overreacted because the young man is Muslim. Not all Muslims are terrorists and many have God given talents. SMH
