Muslims Against Violence


This is neat. A muslim group in NYC has issued this official statement against domestic violence.

We, the men of the board and staff of the Muslim Consultative Network, stand against domestic violence in any and all forms. In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we ask Muslim men to stand with us against this societal ill ...

I'm not gonna nitpick with snarky comments about islam or the koran, because this is a good thing and we need more of it.   Salute to them.  Also,

 We applaud MCN Board Member and Executive Director of Turning Point, Robina Niaz, for being at the forefront of combating domestic violence in New York, and other men and women across the country for working against domestic violence. 

This is the first time I've heard of Turning Point, but it sounds great. Here's Ms Niaz in a video that I can't embed, sorry.  :-(  .   She was Queens' Person Of The Week. Yay.

No matter how you feel about religion, you have to support such a thing as this.

Very true! Hopefully, their children would be further less religious in outlook. Thanks for writing this!

You're right, that's a likely outcome too. Good all around.
