" Washington, September 17A 14-year-old Muslim boy in the US, who was detained after his homemade clock was mistook to be a bomb, has been applauded and invited by the White House, Facebook and Google for his innovation.
Ahmed Mohamed, an engineering enthusiast, brought the clock to his high school in Irving, Texas, on Monday to show one of his teachers, which she mistook to be a bomb.
Hours later, he was handcuffed and arrested by school resource officers as part of "standard procedure".
The incident has created an outrage in the country with messages of support pouring from President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
"Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great," Obama tweeted.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that Obama like many others were struck by these reports.
"In this instance, it's clear that at least some of Ahmed's teachers failed him. That's too bad, but it's not too late for all of us to use this as a teachable moment and to search our own conscience for biases in whatever form they take," he said."
What do you think about teachers action ? To some it is justifiable to take precautions but I have heard similar incident in past and it seems to me citiznen of USA, the greatest country in the world are judgemental towards particular religion, skin color and are living in fear and has become paranoid ?
