In 2017, Mahershala Ali made history by being the first African American man to win an Oscar, on top of which he was the first Muslim to win an Academy award. Of course, Muslims were quick to dismiss the latter because of the dispute regarding Ahmadis and their status within Islam.
Early this morning, Mahershala bagged his second award making him the only Muslim man to win 2 Academy Awards.
The actor won for his performance in the movie “Green Book”. Americans are applauding the actor for his achievement because like last time, he’s the second African American man to win multiple Oscars.
