Muslim student suspended for fake bomb ‘promposal’ accuses his high school of racism


  • Ibrahim Ahmad, a senior at La Center High in Washington State, was suspended five days and will miss Saturday’s prom

A Washington teen who strapped fake explosives around his body in a stunt to ask a date to the prom has been suspended from school.

The five-day suspension for Ibrahim Ahmad will prevent him from attending La Center High’s dance Saturday.

Ahmad says he was trying to go all out with his prom proposal and questions whether the decision to suspend him was based on his ethnicity.

‘It was really unfair, and it kind of felt racist,’ Ahmad said.

The 18-year-old senior wore a vest filled with paper-tube props made to look like explosives.

‘The bomb’: Ibrahim Ahmad, a senior at La Center High in Washington State will miss his prom because of a suspension he received for this bomb-themed promposal. It was really unfair, and it kind of felt racist.

At lunchtime, he stood on the cafeteria stage and held a sign inviting his would-be date to the prom.

‘I kno it’s A little Late, But I’m kinda…THE BOMB! Rilea, Will U Be My Date To Prom?’ the sign read.

School Superintendent Mark Mansell says Ahmad’s actions were inexcusable and that he deserved punishment for disrupting the learning environment.

‘To me, it’s just blatant disrespect,’ Mansell told The Columbian. ‘The student knew that the principal wouldn’t support this and he went ahead and did it anyway.’

The teen says the prank was all in good fun and simply part of a trend in flashy prom proposals.

Becaus of his stunt, prom has been ruined for Ibrahim and his date Rilea Wolfe

‘I’m Middle Eastern, and I thought the bomb was kind of funny and clever,’ he said. ‘I wasn’t wearing the vest for more than, like, 20 seconds.

‘It’s kind of a trending thing now, too, where everyone just asks in a really creative way.’

Besides, she said ‘yes.’

But now that creativity has ruined Ibrahim’s prom and that of his date, Rilea Wolfe.

‘If anyone else did that, I feel like no one else would have gotten in trouble for it,’ Ahmad said.

  1. “UK: Muslim student suspended for fake bomb ‘promposal’ accuses his high school of racism”.

    Very typical of Islam and Muslims.

    Crying and Whining we are the “Religion of Peace”, as well as “Racist”, “Bigoted” and “Islamophobe”, to anyone who exposes the TRUTH about Islam – this “Grand Deception” NO longer works for Islam, as in the very appropriate words of BNI, “It Isn’t Islamophobia When they really ARE trying to kill you”.

  3. Kindergarten students got more time for pointing a finger. Another got more time for eating his pop tart into an L. They said he meant it to look like a gun. He should have been expelled from school and all school functions.
