US: Voting is a fundamental right


Now an American, I cherish this precious right granted to me by the U.S. Constitution irrespective of my faith. Millions worldwide, however, will spend their entire lives denied this right.

As a 41-year-old, recently naturalized U.S. citizen, I shall for the first time in my life exercise my right to vote. I consider this civil right to be of utmost importance.

In my native Pakistan, I could not freely vote. To vote in Pakistan, the Pakistani Constitution required that I first declare myself a “non-Muslim” or declare the founder of my community — the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community — an “imposter.” I was not willing to do so.

Now an American, I cherish this precious right granted to me by the U.S. Constitution irrespective of my faith. Millions worldwide, however, will spend their entire lives denied this right.

Therefore, I urge all fellow Americans not to take this constitutional right for granted and please vote in this election. By doing so, we will be celebrating the fundamental rights that this great country of ours offers us.
