Egyptian comedian, Bassem Youssef, has created a way to combat Islamophobia for Muslims across America called the “Muslim morning after kit”, reported Huffington Post.

Youssef, who is also termed “Egyptian Jon Stewart” is a terrific satirist, and he teamed up with entertainment site CAFÉ to bring Muslims the perfect gateway to protection against suspicion and discrimination. The kit is an innovative way to protect American Muslims “from anyone who may want to hurt you because they think you vaguely resemble a terrorist.”

The parody video sheds light on the way in which racial stereotypes have endangered people, and the fact that Muslims encounter such stereotypes on a daily basis. The ‘kit’ includes American flags “to drape all over your house every direction,” a t-shirt that says, “one of the good ones”, and an audio exercise CD that help users sound more ‘white.’

In addition, Youssef has also included in his ‘kit’ a photo with the country singer Toby Keith, and a backpack patch that says, “just some books and a laptop.” The kit also comes with an audio recording keychain with phrases in it resembling, “I hereby condemn yesterday’s terrorist attack, and all terrorist attacks. Bye bye!”

Youssef added that the kit also comes with a “White flight” application that detects the location of people who have posted ‘alt-right’ Facebook statuses or joined such groups on Reddit. “If whites get close, you’ll know to take a flight as quickly as possible,” he adds.

Interestingly, this kit isn’t only reserved for the Muslims, but also those who ‘look’ like them. This kit is called “Vaguely Muslim-Looking Morning after kit.”

In addition to producing this satirical skewering of Islamophobia, Youssef has become the subject of a new documentary, “Tickling Giants,” chronicling his life as a persecuted political commentator in Egypt.
