Imam Council of Michigan- Meeting to Discuss the Strategies & Importance of Media Outreach!
Once our beloved brother, shahid Malcolm X (hajj Malik Shabaz) said if you are not careful, the media may make you love the oppressors and hate the oppressed.
The investment of the American Muslim community in media is almost zero! It's disastrous to live under the most powerful political propaganda and Islamophobia without media investment. There is need for money and right people to be proactive in media approach.
Islamic House of Wisdom without any financial support from any entity is innocently doing its best to serve this good cause with so much hard work and sacrifice. Hopefully some support and more understanding of importance of media outreach in the Muslim community soon.
While Imam Elahi just returned from a media outreach in NYC, he joined the Imam's Council of Michigan to discuss the issue.
The Co-Chairs of Michigan Imams Council, Imam Mustafa El-Turk and Imam Elahi had invited Professor Mohammad Seddiqi from Sound Vision Institution to address the imams and share his knowledge and experiences on this field. The orientation was excellent and the imams enjoyed the information. Thank you Dr. Siddeeq!
Please send us your thoughts about media and how the community can show support especially under the current challenges of Islamophobia.
