At a time when Muslim world is expressing shock and outrage following US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban, a news has emerged that lady Liberty was born a Muslim, according to CBS News. It has been learned that Statue of Liberty was originally an Egyptian peasant, researchers said, according to the report. Liberty Enlightening the World, commonly known as the Statue of Liberty, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.

Notably, Trump had passed an executive order, suspending refugee arrivals and imposing tough controls on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

According to the information available , the statue, an icon of freedom in the US, is a figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess. The statue bears torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 is inscribed.

Recently, a German magazine had published a front cover illustration of US President Donald Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty. The cover of the magazine depicts a cartoon figure of Trump with a bloodied knife in one hand and the statue’s head, dripping with blood, in the other. It carries the caption: “America First”.

It followed a series of attacks on Berlin’s policies by Trump and his aides that have marked a rapid deterioration in German relations with the United States.
