I just wrote yet another column about dhimmis presuming to discern what is the true Islam and what isn’t. It should appear tomorrow somewhere; meanwhile, in Lancashire, the aptly-titled “Pc Julian Andrews” is leading efforts to justify the ways of Islam to non-Muslims. I trust they will invite someone from Al-Muhajiroun to these discussions. From the BBC, with thanks to Susan:
The Preston True Colours of Islam Project aims to encourage non-Muslims to attend mosques and speak to the Muslim community about their religion.
The events, which will last a week, have been organised by the Preston Imams-Police Forum.
They aim to tackle issues including women’s rights, culture and Islam’s contribution to the city’s community.
Pc Julian Andrews, of Lancashire Police’s Minorities team, said: “The aim of the week is to introduce non-Muslims to the true nature of Islam by exploring and dispelling some of the myths that surround it.”
Three of Preston’s mosques will be holding open evenings next week where people can watch prayers, with an English translation.
The events will conclude with a seminar at the city’s Canterbury Hall where people can raise questions with leading members of the Muslim community.
Pc Andrews added: “We hope that many non-Muslims will take this unique opportunity to have their questions answered and have any worries or concerns addressed….”
