Daisy Khan: Knocking Out Stereotypes

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Daisy KahnThe shiny red boxing gloves projected on a screen over Daisy Khan’s shoulder definitely didn’t fit her as a young child in Kashmir, India, when her father gave her a life lesson using the oversized mitts as a prop, and they would surely swallow her up now. Yet they forever have a use.Khan, just a toddler at the time, occasionally escapes to that moment in her life, as she did again at a recent event at Long Island University Post, her alma mater. Khan said her father hoped the gloves would resonate years later if his youngest child was ever faced with a foe or a challenge seemingly too daunting to overcome.“Why?” she asked him.“‘Because you were my third daughter, and I never wanted anybody to bully you,’” Khan remembers him telling her. “‘And if anybody was going to try and bully you, I wanted to teach you to defend yourself.’”The elder Khan wasn’t advocating future physical retaliation, she said. Instead, it was his way of empowering his daughter early on. Khan has adopted that lesson and tries to encourage Muslim women in America and in other countries to amplify their voices and become leaders in their own communities.Khan, now 55, is executive director and co-founder of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, a nonprofit organization that she founded with her husband, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Both became the public faces behind the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” a project that stalled after intense pressure from opponents who blasted the plan as insensitive to families of victims who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Khan also launched WISE (Women’s Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equality), an advocacy group that supports Muslim women across the globe.Khan, invited by LIU Post to speak Nov. 13 as part of its five-week-long lecture series dubbed “Muslim Journeys,” told the female-dominated crowd that it felt good to be back at the university, which was “pivotal in shaping my world view.”She left India at age 16 and moved in with her uncle, Dr. Faroque Khan, one of the founders of Westbury’s Islamic Center of Long Island, in Jericho, and eventually enrolled at LIU, where she signed up for a Farsi class that gave her the opportunity to hang out with the “cool Iranian kids.”Khan took advantage of her LI education and later became a successful architectural designer for several Fortune 500 companies and even admitted to The New York Times in 2010 that she sometimes struggled with her faith during that time, partly due to its suppression of women’s rights.Sept. 11 changed everything.Khan was peppered with the same question that has become all-too familiar for many other Muslims who were suddenly forced to defend their faith: “Why is your religion so violent?”She was inspired to “unearth the truth of Islam,” she told the crowd.In 2006, Khan—“compelled to create a modern-day Muslim women’s suffrage movement,” she said—established WISE, while at the same time advocating for Muslim Americans through interfaith collaboration.“I believe…that by giving voice to women is our best chance to stop them,” she said of extremists.WISE’s official launch came during a conference in Times Square in ’06, which included 150 Muslim women from 25 different countries.“This faith-based activism is continuing with Muslim women today,” she said.“We cannot let the extremists hijack the discourse from us,” Khan added. “Our voices have to be the strongest because we are the strongest in numbers.”Armed with the memory of her father’s boxing gloves, so dear to her heart, she passes their power on.last_img read more

5-person CFPB board would provide continuity: CUNA to Congress

first_imgThe current sole-director structure at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) jeopardizes the bureau’s foundation as an objective, neutral consumer protection agency, CUNA and its partners told members of the U.S. Congress last week. CUNA and the other organizations wrote in support of the Financial Product Safety Commission Act (H.R. 1266), asking for it to be includes in the fiscal year 2016 omnibus appropriations bill.“This common-sense, bipartisan policy would create a five-member board at the CFPB, is fully paid for over the next ten years, and provides a smooth transition process that provides continuity of leadership at the Bureau,” the letter reads. “Looking ahead, the current sole director structure at the CFPB jeopardizes the foundation of the Bureau as an objective, neutral consumer protection agency. A commission would serve as a source of balance and stability for consumers and the financial services industry by encouraging internal debate and deliberation, ultimately leading to increased transparency.”The letter adds that a bipartisan board would allow the CFPB’s processes to be more effective in protecting consumers, while allowing input from “multiple leaders with diverse experiences and expertise.”In December 2009, the House passed legislation that would have created a five-member commission to oversee the CFPB, led by then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Barney Frank, who was then chair of the House Financial Services Committee, with 223 Democrats voting in favor of the measure. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Chief executive at MN calls for hybrid Dutch pensions system

first_imgWhile he acknowledged that the current system could benefit from a “pause” and more regulatory stability, MN’s chief executive stressed that a fundamental update was inevitable.He predicted that the Dutch government would clarify the coming changes to the system within the next two years, and that “drastic measures” would be agreed during the negotiations for a new coalition.Hagendijk said that, due to the effect of low interest rates on funding ratios, people were under the mistaken impression that Dutch pension funds were “dirt poor”. “However, the opposite is true,” he said.Hagendijk also expressed doubts about the new financial assessment framework’s (FTK) ability to stabilise the pensions system.“The reality is that more assets will be hoarded up, resulting in no indexation for years to come,” he said.MN manages assets for almost 2m participants and pensioners affiliated with 35,000 employers in both the Netherlands and the UK.Among its Dutch clients are the large metal schemes PMT and PME.In other news, the €72m Dutch pension fund of security firm G4S has said it will join the €1.1bn industry-wide scheme for private security (PPB).In a joint statement, it cited the increasing requirements for expertise, as well as increased costs. The Dutch pensions system should be a hybrid arrangement consisting of mandatory second-pillar accrual for incomes up to the national average and an additional personal and voluntary build-up of pension rights, according to Ruud Hagendijk, chief executive at the €105bn asset manager MN. Hagendijk – who is to step down from MN after 10 years as chief executive and 18 years at the company – said this set-up would be necessary to counter the effects of ever-increasing life expectancy, which, in his opinion, poses the biggest threat to the current system.Speaking at his company’s New Year meeting this week, he warned that, under the existing system, pensions will be unaffordable even for current generations.He argued that dual pensions accrual would provide certainty for an income after retirement, and would come with the extra option for additional pensions saving.last_img read more
