‘Do you really know what Islam is?’ ” Abdulazeez said. “There’s this misconception that Islam is a violent religion. Muslims are actually peaceful.”

… She’s among several Muslin teens voicing concerns over anti-Muslim sentiments they believe are rising as controversies surrounding Islam capture national attention.
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga freshman Yasmeen Abdulazeez, 17, was told by a professor that he would lower her grade when she asked to miss class for a religious holiday. She dropped the class instead.
Abdulazeez, who has worn the head covering since she was a child, said she has experienced many problems as a result. A referee during a volleyball tournament refused to allow her to play because of her headscarf.
Chattanooga’s Muslim teens said they feel a responsibility to help dispel the negative stereotypes of their faith.
Before graduating from Red Bank High School, Abdulazeez said some of the students would harass her. She said she saw that as an opportunity to dispel misconceptions about her faith.
