In Line With Islamic Heritage Month and Rising Islamophobia, Muslim Youth Group Launches Nationwide Campaign – “Coffee & Islam”

Given the heightened public scrutiny with respect to Muslims and Islam in the west as of late, it is important to give people a platform to freely ask their questions about the Islamic teachings and the Muslim lifestyle.

In line with Islamic Heritage Month, rising anti-Islamic sentiment, and in the wake of Quebec’s controversial niqab ban, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association launches the “Coffee & Islam” campaign to break down myths and stereotypes, and proactively give Canadians across Canada a platform to ask their questions about Islam and the Muslim way of life. Muslims from across the country are working together to invite and host Canadians from coast to coast to learn and ask questions about Islam over a cup of coffee!

In the backdrop of Islamic Heritage - which runs through October - and in light of the public curiosity generated following the controversial niqab ban in Quebec, the “Coffee & Islam” campaign comes at a pertinent time.

Given the heightened public scrutiny with respect to Muslims and Islam in the west as of late, it is important to give people a platform to freely ask their questions about the Islamic teachings and the Muslim lifestyle.

“We are launching this campaign to continue building bridges and positive relationships with our fellow Canadians,” said Kashif Danish, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association. “It is only through such positive dialogue that we will be able to strengthen ties of friendship and win in the battle against extremism.”

Registration for the campaign launches today at www.CoffeeAndIslam.com with hundreds of Muslims across the country anticipating thousands of registrations.
