I went to the pharmacy to pick up my moms medicine and the South Asian pharmacist straight up asked me If I was Sunni or Shi’a. I looked at him dead straight and replied with MUSLIM. He looked down for a moment then said “well aren’t you guys killing each other?”
I couldn’t believe that someone who is supposedly educated would even say something like that.
I was like I have sunni family members and my family is shia. Iraq is all intertwined.
I can’t even escape sectarianism all the way across the globe.
Next time I will reply to that question with I am shia. It’s funny how people treat you differently once they know you are shia and proceed to treat you as a non believer.
