Faith has much to do with science, and a Muslim couple is the true personification of the brain wave. The planet is ready to fight back against the deadly corona, and Pfizer, an American multinational pharmaceutical, is springing up and stunned the world with big news. This Muslim Couple Invented the Vaccine of COVID-19 to Save the World.
Though, President Trump is not happy with the news because, he could not cash the victory to his presidential victory, as the great news came six days after the elections. The heroes behind the great news are Muslim Scientists… proud and pleasing moments for the Muslim Ummah.
Who are the COVID Stars?
The duo involved in the Pfizer vaccine that is recently proved to be 90% effective against COVID. The whipping hand is of a Muslim couple from Turkey. They are Uger Sahin and Ozlem Tureci, 55 and 53 respectively. But it is surprising-cum-distressing that when it is about terrorism, they mention “Muslim” in the news, but when it is to grant them officiation, the world became dumb and mute…WHY?
These heroes would protect humanity from a virus that has killed 1,280,000 people and obstructed billions.
Why Muslim Scientists are ignored on the global spectrum?
The global media has been discriminating against Muslim leading lights since always. They hardly get due recognition and often face discernment. Instances are vast to prove the claim that is also spelt out by the study out of the University of Chicago.
“About half of the Muslim physicians in the USA reported discrimination. There is a long list of glaring examples, one of them is that of a World-renowned Northwestern University researcher Professor Teepu Siddique. This Pakistani-American Muslim physician discovered the gene causing neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Though, he is currently enforced to fight and screak in the courts to save his research work. His work is alluded to in over 1600 scientific publications, but the University has cut 80% of its funding. Muslim physicians and scientists are often transgressed. The most eye-catching example is President-elect Biden’s 16-person Pandemic Task Force, which does not rapt a single Muslim physician in the USA. The yet another paradigm is Dr. Uzma Syed at Muslim Network TV, who is just one such epidemiologist and mother of two who runs around saving lives in three hospitals whereas also chairing the local pandemic task force in Long Island New York.”
This Muslim Couple Invented the Vaccine of COVID-19 to Save the World
Dr. Ugur Sahin and his wife Dr. Özlem Türeci, met each other in a German medical school. She was born to Turkish immigrants and he was four years old when he came with his immigrant parents to Germany. Dr. Sahin is also a Professor of Immunology at the University of Mainz, Germany. Dr. Sahin is Shaheen actually which means a falcon. But it is more of a fabled falcon, incarnating the ideal Muslim and popularized by Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, the poet of Pakistan.
Strokes of the genius of Dr. Sahin
Dr. Sahin has bestowed the Mustafa Prize in 2019. The award is named after Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, by an organization called Khuddame Mustafa (the Servants of the Prophet). It is a prize for Muslims in science and technology, which he received for his development and clinical testing of mRNA-based cancer vaccines that can be tailored to individual patients’ mutation profiles. They founded the German company BioNTech. It is currently valued at $21.9bn and has 1,800 staff. Their scientific novelty beat the larger and more famed competitors in bringing a COVID vaccine to market.
Dr. Sahin was keenly working on his science when the pandemic hit, as the New York Times reported:
“Two years ago, Dr. Ugur Sahin took the stage at a conference in Berlin and made a bold prediction. Speaking to a roomful of infectious disease experts, he said his company might be able to use its so-called messenger RNA technology to rapidly develop a vaccine in the event of a global pandemic. Dr. Sahin canceled the vacations of his staff and got to work, calling their project “Project Lightspeed” and initially developing 20 candidates. But to test it rapidly, he partnered with the chief executive of Pfizer, an immigrant from Greece. And now the world has a vaccine.”
The New York Times says
“Both scientists are simple people. The two billionaires live with their teenage daughter in a modest apartment near their office. They ride bicycles to work. They do not own a car.”
Germany greeted almost a million Syrian refugees, definitely benefits from its immigrants. It is a more-refined scenario than France where Muslims face huge religious seclusion and Islamophobia.
Praise to the skies for the Muslim Heroes.
