Canada: Islamic group holds open house
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Canada (AMYA) is holding a number of open houses this weekend at public library branches, to promote peace, condemn terrorism and dispel myths about honour killing.
Rizwan Rabbani, the National Executive Director of the religious organization, says, “We have been promoting peace, condemning terrorism and dispelling myths about Islam as a part of our nationwide campaign for the past year,” visiting 238 towns throughout Canada.
More recently, while the jury was deliberating the Shafia trail verdict, volunteers from the group were “knocking on doors in Kingston to condemn acts of honour killing,” says Rabbani.
The information sessions, entitled “Tribute to Mother Mary, An Islamic Perspective” will focus on women in general and what does Islam has to say about honour killings.
These open houses will take place in four branches of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library, Saturday, Feb. 4, from noon-4 p.m., at the main branch, the Pittsburgh Branch, the Isabel Turner Branch, and Calvin Park Branch.
