Local Muslims Hope to Shatter Stereotypes- Defeat Islamophobia!
Nov. 25, 2015- Carmen Harlan of Channel 4, called it open, honest and to the point! It was a conversation following recent bloody terrorist tragedies in Beirut and Paris. Carmen of Channel 4 and her team came to the IHW and spoke with hajja Nawal, Dr. Rima, hajj Hussein and Imam Elahi. The conversation was over an hour, but the station had only 3 minutes but they were generous enough to extend it to 5 minuets and 30 seconds! This was aired last night on Channel 4 News. If you like to see a longer version of the conversation (yet not the entire hour) on the station page, you may click HERE
