A planned Harvard commencement speech by a Muslim student has sparked an online protest. Nearly 2,000 people have signed an online petition protesting the speech, “Of Faith and Citizenship: My American Jihad,” which student Zayed Yasin plans to deliver at the school’s June 6 graduation ceremonies. Yasin, the former president of the Harvard Islamic Society, said the content of the speech is not political and he has no plans to change it, according to The Associated Press.
