Now, Muslim women around the country - lawyers, entrepreneurs, teachers, activists, artists, mothers and students - are using the trending hashtag #CanYouHearUsNow on social media to address Trump's comments, as well as the popular notion that Islam oppresses women. "I will gladly lend you my copy", Khizr Khan said during his speech last week at the Democratic National Convention.

Trump suggested in an ABC News interview that Khan might have been barred from speaking during her appearance at the Democratic National Convention last week as she stood alongside her husband, Khizr Khan, who criticized the Republican nominee in his speech.

"At the end of the day, despite the fact I disagree with Donald on a number of things, including his statement on this, I disagree with her on everything", Rubio said. The family lost their son, a decorated American soldier, in Iraq. Donald Trump continues to make comments about the Khan family that only seem to make the situation worse.

"[Border security] is a very big subject for me".

In that same interview, Trump had more to say, targeting the the Khan's religion and questioning why Ghazala Khan didn't speak. "Donald Trump supports our soldiers and supports our veterans, like no other leader in my lifetime".

Unrest in Kashmir is Pakistan sponsored: Rajnath Singh
Azad called for an all-party meeting to discuss the issue. "People in Kashmir are following separatist dictates", he said. How are you going to implement that? I want to assert that no power in the world can wrest Kashmir from us.

"You've got a son in the military - how do you tolerate this disrespect?" Trump has responded by attacking the Khans repeatedly. Nobody knows if they're ISIS, they don't know who they are. "In his eyes, he thinks that he can criticize people but no one else can criticize", Khan told PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff.

In his first rally after the controversy blew up, Trump spoke at length and took several questions at a town hall rally in Columbus, Ohio, yesterday - never once mentioning the Khans.

Over the weekend Donald Trump was part of a unusual media stand-off with the parents of an American soldier who was killed in Iraq.

"Nobody that I've heard has ever said Muslims don't serve in the military with honor", Vrooman said. Trump's remarks show he doesn't understand the camaraderie between military families, he said. "She probably, maybe she wasn't allow (ed) to have anything to say. Captain Khan is an American hero and we honour him and honour his family".

But the candidate did not apologize and quickly pivoted to talking about terrorism in the statement.
