In spite of the Islamophobic rhetoric in this election season and the
prevailing anti-Muslim atmosphere in the country, one Muslim community
simply refuses to abandon its peaceful motto: Love for All; Hatred for
None. Last week the group's local chapter was busy hosting a blood drive
at the Boston City Hall to honor the victims of 9/11 and the Boston
Marathon tragedies under its "Muslims for Life
This Saturday, the group hosts a symposium in Waltham with two
1. The Holy Quran: A Message of Peace -- by area Peace activist,,
who will share and compare verses of various scriptures that enjoin
2. Challenges to Peace; Stop the crISIS -- by blogger and writer,
, who will share with the audience the Prophet Muhammad's prediction
about the appearance of ISIS 1400 years ago.
The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and informal
conversation with members to get to know about Islam from Muslims.
The symposium on Saturday is part of a month-long exhibition of the Holy
Quran at the Waltham Public library, which the Ahmadiyya Muslim
Community Women's organization has been hosting at various libraries.
The exhibition features copies of the Holy Quran in many languages and
verses displayed in beautiful calligraphy. Complimentary copies of books
and pamphlets on Islam will be available.
Recently, the group hosted similar events at the Attleboro Public
