Dr. Saud Anwar Co-Chair of the AMPI met with the Holocaust Child Survivors

March 24th, 2009: Dr. Saud Anwar Co-Chair of the AMPI met with the Holocaust Child Survivors of Connecticut (HCSC) in Bridgeport Connecticut. Dr. Anwar spoke about how fringe groups are hijacking Islam and the challenges that creates for other Muslims. He spoke about the most common misperceptions and myths about Islam, the various causes of the misinterpretations, how these interactions affect people and communities of other faiths and how we collectively can break the current cycle of not respecting “the other.” The discussion lasted a few hours because of the multiple questions the group of holocaust survivors had.
