Peace Islands Institute’s Center for Interfaith Affairs, in collaboration with Quinnipiac University’s Department of Cultural and Global Engagement, is organizing a panel discussion on the topic ‘Muslim Voices against Extremism’ featuring a Sacred Relics Exhibition.
The event will take place at Quinnipiac University’s Mount Carmel Campus on Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
Panelists are Professor Timur Yuskaev, co-director of Islamic Chaplaincy Program at Hartford Seminary and Mr. Neset Ulusal, Muslim Religious Coordinator at Quinnipiac University.
The program will start with a light dinner and exhibition of sacred relics. The institute hopes to bring an Islamic perspective against extremist groups’ reference to religion to justify their brutal actions.
The Center for Interfaith Affairs provides a common platform for dialogue for both faith and non-faith traditions to discuss, explore and understand each other, as well as offer suggestions for the common problems of humanity. “We believe awareness is the first step to harmony and love. Upon this view, discussion series, panels, visits trips, conferences and active community service are continuously organized by PII’s Center for Interfaith team” says, the director, Mr. Erdogdu.
