Islamophobia is alive in America, and Hussein Rashid sees it playing out among Sikhs, often mistaken for Muslims. In the most recent example, a member of her own party mistook a Californian GOP candidate, who is Sikh, for being a Muslim. “The reality is that Islamophobia has very real consequences and more and more victims of Islamophobia and Islamophobic rhetoric tend to be non-Muslims,” Rashid said.
UPF is proud to present its latest documentary film, Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World. This new ninety-minute film takes audiences on an epic journey across nine countries and over 1,400 years of history. It explores themes such as the Word, Space, Ornament, Color and Water and presents the stories behind many great masterworks of Islamic Art and Architecture.
I was honored to be invited to Middle Collegiate Church to pray on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2012. During that time, they made a short video of the power of faith to change things that I participated in. The video is below:
Faith in London is a short silent film celebrating the common instruction towards compassion that exists in all world religions and honouring what is perhaps the finest example of multi-faith coexistence in the world: The City of London.
In making London the protagonist, the film vividly illustrates how her many faiths provide inspiration to her people, instilling love and compassion between them. It challenges opposition to the prevalence of organised religion in modern society by giving a voice to those who embody the true spirit of their faith.
It is because of these people that we can proudly say: We have Faith in London.
