True Is­lam Road­show and Qur’an Ex­hi­bi­tion

Hamilton News - - OPINION / NEWS -

A Meet a Mus­lim road­show that seeks to re­move mis­un­der­stand­ings about Is­lam and dis­pel the many myths around ter­ror­ism and Jihad will be in Hamil­ton on Satur­day.

The True Is­lam Road­show and Qur’an Ex­hi­bi­tion is or­gan­ised by Muslin or­gan­i­sa­tion Ah­madiyya Mus­lim Jama’at New Zealand, and all in­ter­ested Hamil­to­ni­ans are in­vited.

A spokesman for the or­gan­is­ers said the cam­paign is an at­tempt to help en­cour­age di­a­logue and re­move mis­con­cep­tions about the faith.

Var­i­ous trans­la­tions of the Is­lamic holy scrip­ture will be on dis­play, in­clud­ing the Ku­ranu Tapu (the Qur’an in te reo).

“We also en­cour­age the pub­lic to come and just meet “meet a Mus­lim”, en­gage in di­a­logue and bridge gaps of mis­un­der­stand­ing. We also hold cof­fee, cake and true Is­lam ses­sions through­out the day where the pub­lic can have an in­for­mal and can­did dis­cus­sion on any topic of their choice. It al­ways proves to be a hit,” the spokesman said.

■ The free event runs from 10am to 4pm in the Chartwell Room at Hamil­ton Gar­dens. Short sem­i­nars on Qur’an and ter­ror­ism start at 10.30am, 1pm and 3pm.
