The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) in the U.K. has announced that it is holding an Islamic Awareness Week to include lectures, exhibitions, and several workshops. Islamic art and calligraphy will be presented and discussions held on Islam today and the three Abrahamic religions- Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The religious discussion will center on a comparison between Biblical text and the text of the Quran regarding Jesus. Another lecture will center on the ” scientific miracles of the Quran”, a concept associated with Muslim Brotherhood figure Zaghloul El-Naggar. A third lecture will be aimed at “correcting the misconceptions people have about Islam, because of the actions of some Muslims.” Other topics will include women and Muslims living with non-Muslims. WAMY U.K director Dr. Nur al-Din Miladi says the event is open to all Londoners, especially those living in Goodge Street and the area (WAMY shares the premises at 46 Goodge Street with the Muslim World League).
Muslim Brothers were instrumental in the founding of WAMY and the organization continues to enjoy close relations with the global Muslim Brotherhood. U.S. government agencies and officials have argued that WAMY has helped spread Islamic extremism around the world as well as sponsoring terrorism in places such as Bosnia, Israel, and India. Numerous previous posts have discussed WAMY’s activities throughout the world.
