salaam this is really sad

The host family in Egypt was christian, (the reason they starved him was because of their 'religious fasting', just think what uproar would be caused if the family was Muslim. Islam, not the family would be blamed:(

As salaamu alaikum

I agree, if the host family had been Muslim, Islam would have been blamed.  I find it interesting that this young man much preferred staying with them than staying with another host family because the 2nd family didn't live a safe neighborhood.  It must have been plenty safe if they were selected to be a host family. 

As salaamu alaikum
