Hi, I'm Aysha Khan.
I’m a journalist in Boston covering religion and digital culture. My work focuses on Muslim communities, lives and histories in America.
My reporting on U.S. Muslims has been published in Religion News Service, where I spent several years as a reporter, as well as the Washington Post, Associated Press and more. I've filed stories from London to Las Vegas, covering a Uyghur woman's battle to release her father from Chinese detention, the Muslim women confronting spiritual abuse and Pakistan's weaponization of its blasphemy laws against Ahmadi Muslims in the U.S.
I studied journalism at the University of Maryland and am a graduate student at Harvard Divinity School. I've held fellowships with the Lived Religion in the Digital Age research initiative, The GroundTruth Project, the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, the Muslim Women & the Media Training Institute, and the Journalism & Women Symposium.
