Press Releases

Media coverage for American Muslim Institution from August 1 thru December 1, 2015

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.  
It was amusing to see someone selling our picture taken on the steps of Lincoln Memorial for $150.00 to magazines?  Here it is:
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.

Now Fox News sees us doing things that every Americans wants, they will be on our side, nay, all of us will be on the same side; for a safe and secure America.  If we can set our priorities right; long term security in a fully integrated society, then we have no worries to worry. 

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;

And here is Hannity on the Radio Show,  the program was about Syrian Refugees, not a AMI agenda, but the first few minutes about Lincoln Memorial.  By the way, his plan for refugees is by far the best.

Take a look  – his audio is within this link.

Hannity again;

McCall News has gone further in being with us.

12.01.15   Bigotry has no place in America –Op-Ed
And our own friend Ali Imran has nearly understood the essence of holding the event on the steps of Lincoln Memorial, and has written it very well.

We have been in News quite a lot. 

Fox, CNN, CBS, US News, Al-Jazeera, VOA, NPR and others have all covered it.  It is good coverage indeed. This is the job of a team of at least three people, but we have done it putting endless hours into this, to make us all successful.
