A group of people from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community were in Hope on Thursday (Feb. 13) to share details of their culture and religion with the public.
The group travels around the province for Quran Open House events, in an effort to dispel myths and bridge cultures in various communities. Visitors were welcome to sit and chat, to view a copy of the Quran, and to take home their own English translated Quran.
They were set up in the mezzanine of the Hope Recreation Centre, with a sign outside the door of the arena that stated: “I’m a Muslim, Ask Me Anything!” This is not the first time they’ve done outreach in Hope. They were in the same location in 2017, with the same message.
While not many turned out for the event, they say they met with a Hope pastor and there was a discussion of holding an interfaith conference this spring.
