Canadian Muslims Going Door to Door for Nationwide Campaign to Remove Misconceptions About Islam

In light of the recent rise in anti-Islamic sentiment both in Canada and abroad, Canadian Muslims are bringing forward a platform which provides fellow Canadians an authentic source to learn about the faith and remove misconceptions.

On May 6th and May 7th, 2017, members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at will be going door to door, as part of a unique nationwide campaign to provide Canadians an opportunity to learn about the true teachings of Islam. In light of the recent rise in anti-Islamic sentiment both in Canada and abroad, Canadian Muslims are bringing forward a platform which provides fellow Canadians an authentic source to learn about the faith and remove misconceptions. This national campaign – titled “Islam Understood” – includes door-to-door canvassing in neighbourhoods across Canada, special exhibitions in select towns and social media campaigns.

“Recent shifts in the political climate and increasing controversy surrounding Islam in the west, has created misunderstandings about Islam and a growing apprehension of Muslims”, stated Mr. Lal Khan Malik, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada. He added “In light of the recent attacks in Quebec and the recent controversy over anti-Islamophobia, the campaign comes at a time when curiosity about Islam is high”.

Through the “Islam Understood” campaign, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at will hold over 100 Open-House Exhibitions in various towns across Canada throughout the year, in an attempt to remove misconceptions about Islam. On Sunday May 6 and 7, thousands of Canadian Muslims will canvass 70 towns and major Canadian cities to speak with Canadians and answer any questions they may have about Islam.
