Using multi-media to break down stereotypes of Muslims

A WBFO article discussing how WNY Muslims can use the media to spread awareness and education on Islam.

WNYMuslims is a youth group that has carved out a mission to share their diverse and religious customs with the community through educational materials and working to foster new friendships among citizens. They’re using multi-media platforms from videos to social media to digitally promote their mission.

“They’re very smart. They’re very intelligent,” said Faizan Haq, the original founder and editor in chief of WNY Muslims.  It started on a Yahoo list sever in the early Internet days in 1996.

“I think they on the whole, I think they make less mistakes because they believe in collaborative decision making,” said Haq.”
