Follow-Up

This article ran in the opinion section of the Atlanta Journal Constitution today, reiterating many of the points we made in yesterday's post.

Last March, the American Islamic Fellowship, in partnership with the Progressive Muslim Network in Washington, D.C., and I AM: American Muslim in Phoenix, launched "Not in Our Name: United Against Domestic Violence." It was a campaign to unite all people of faith in an effort to bring an end to this problem that affects all our communities. Another Muslim initiative to fight domestic violence internationally is the Peaceful Families Project.

We need to support these efforts so that no life is ever taken in the name of religion.

We encourage you to read the article in its entirety.

As a follow-up to our article, the American Islamic Fellowship is also providing a resource sheet to interested individuals found here. While the resource sheet has a local focus, it can easily be adapted for any area, state, region or event. We understand many people will still choose to see this person as a "victim of another society", but it is very important for people to realize, and some are, that Sandeela was a neighbor and her situation is applicable to and affects everyone.
