KIWI MUSLIMS PROMOTE DIVERSITY

Muslim World

 

New Zealander Muslims have launched an awareness week to promote the idea of diversity in the south-western Pacific country and clear misconceptions about their faith. "Islam Awareness Week provides an opportunity for the members of the wider New Zealand community to learn and appreciate the beliefs, values and practices of Muslim New Zealanders," said the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ) President Javed Khan. The aim is to showcase the diversity among New Zealand's Muslims and contribute to greater social understanding and cohesion by promoting communication and new relationships. The annual event aims to tackle misinformation about Islam and tackle prejudices resulting from tarnished media reporting about Muslims. The theme of campaign is "Unity in Diversity" and it features lectures, video screenings and information displays about the Muslim and lifestyle. Established in 1979, FIANZ is a federation of several regional Muslim associations of New Zealand.
