Laiq Ahmed Atif spoke about the ‘The Multiple faces of Islamophobia’. He said that fear creates hatred and leads to violence, but through education, understanding, awareness, knowledge and information about each other, and through continuous dialogue the barriers and walls of hatred and fear can be demolished; and bridges of tolerance, love and harmony can be built.

He said that, modern communication technology is fast demolishing national barriers and making this globe into one human family. It is vital that we try to learn about the views and ideologies of other people for the sake of a better and friendlier atmosphere on an international level.seminar about Islamophobia -02
