The 10th Annual Prophet Muhammad (s) Day Interfaith Conference

Muslims for Peace, Inc. has organised the 10th Annual Prophet Muhammad (s) Day Conference on Sunday, March 5th, 2017 at 2:00 PM. The event was held in the Busch Campus Center Multipurpose Room (604 Bartholomew Road, Piscataway Township, NJ 08854).

The 10th Annual Prophet Muhammad (s) Day event will focus on the current state of political affairs in the country, calling for awareness, concern, and action to combat racism and bigotry of Muslims. By now, everyone has heard of the current Muslim Ban being placed on citizens and residents of seven prominent Muslim countries. Right now, this ban targets Muslims and shows the embedded racism and hatred of Muslims in the current leadership. Let us stand in solidarity with the marginalized and underrepresented minorities and put an end to the hatred. Let us empower ourselves and have our voices heard. #MuslimBan
