|Arsalan Arsalan Iftikhar has been condemning Sept. 11 since that very morning. In the last decade, he has become a voice for millions of American Muslims. (HANDOUT / September 12, 2011)|

Arsalan Iftikhar could tell you. He has been condemning Sept. 11 since that very morning. Having turned 24 years old 10 days earlier, he calls it his “second birthday,” the day he was “reborn” as a voice for millions of American Muslims, whether he intended to be or not.
