Naima Khan insists Biryani Kabab Factory exists only to serve good food, no matter who wants it.

But, that statement has been drowned out over the last week by a Twitter attack from folks who believe the Irving, Texas, restaurant is a Muslim hotspot.

A Twitter user at an account called AMTrump4Pres sent out a year-old picture of people praying during Ramadan. It showed Muslims gathering for prayer outside the restaurant.


Since then, the picture has been retweeted – with commentary – many times over.

ONLINE TUSSLE: Twitter reacts to divisive tweets with hilarious responses

The social media attack has left Khan at a loss, for both words and business. Khan told WFAA-TV in Dallas that the firestorm initially hurt business last week. But, by Tuesday and Wednesday, people started to return to the restaurant.

Also jumping into the fray was CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, a civil rights organization vilified by some on the political hard right.

It’s left Khan grateful for the fans and friends the restaurant has. But also wondering when the online attacks will subside.

As of Saturday, the restaurant was still a hot topic on Twitter. And, given the current political climate, it shows few signs of letting up.
