Media Reports August 1, 2015 – December 1, 2015
In a short span of 4 months, we have a record presence in nearly 300 news papers through our 10 press releases, and 160 direct entries about us since August 1, 2015, many of them are listed below.

Taking the lead and being the first one is not easy, most people are afraid to take the bold step partly due to the bureaucracy but mainly due to strong dissent from a few members from within the community.  Good ideas and great initiatives are usually killed by a few strong negative voices, we are deeply committed to speak up and do the right thing, and may God help us in being a proactive voice for Muslims.

No one is our enemy, and we simply cannot set up ourselves in that fashion. What is really happening is those who are concerned about the terrorists are mistakenly assuming that all Muslims must be like them.  It behooves us to dispel this myth and separate the two.  If we do that, they will start seeing that both ‘them’ and “us” together have the same common threat, and we become fellow Americans.

Ambassador Islam Siddiqui’s vision was to work and get to a point where, “Americans will see Muslims as their neighbors and fellow citizens, committed to fighting against violent extremism and protecting the homeland.”And my work is driven by the theme of building cohesive societies where no human has to live in apprehensions or fear of the other.  In the following Video Stuart Varney more or less agrees with us;
