Mohammad Suleiman's father said that they suffered a lot due to the investigations carried out by the police and social services department.

But Suleiman told the station Mohammad's regular teacher left C.J. Harris Elementary School, and a substitute teacher called police about Mohammad.

A six-year-old Muslim boy with Down syndrome was feared as a terrorist by his teacher in a school in the United States after he kept repeating "Allah" and "boom" in his classroom, a media report said on Sunday.

"The last three to four weeks have been the hardest of my life", Maher said. This is so stupid, this is discrimination actually. Maher also said that the substitute teacher told the police that Mohammad could speak. "It's not implied discrimination, it's a hundred per cent discrimination".

A phonecall made by the teacher led the cops and Child Protective Services to look into the family from Pearland, Texas. "A 6-year-old kid".
