Inspired By Mohammed

Inspired by Mohammed is a campaign, the Exploring Islam Foundation is Behind it; On their website it said  "The Exploring Islam Foundation (EIF) specialises in authoring, publishing and marketing high quality resources which creatively explore the numerous aspects of Islam. EIF was established fulfil the following aims:
  • Challenge misconceptions surrounding Islam and Muslims
  • Raise awareness about the belief, practice, history, and cultures of Islam
  • Collaborate with organisations on humanitarian issues
  • Highlight the contribution of Muslims to society
Our vision is of establishing a Foundation that challenges the damaging stereotypes about Islam through the medium of creative resources."  & "The Inspired by Muhammad campaign is designed to improve the public understanding of Islam and Muslims. It showcases Britons demonstrating how Muhammad inspires them to contribute to society, with a focus on women’s rights, social justice and the environment. The campaign coincides with a national polls conducted by YouGov which shows that the 69% of people believe that Islam encourages the oppression of women, that just 6% of people associate Islam with justice and that just 6% believe that Islam promotes active measures to protect the environment. Overall, nearly half of all people in the UK believe that Islam does not have a positive impact on British society."
There are posters at tube stations, on taxicabs, bus stops and all over really. I personally think that the campaign is needed and will combat the negative stereotypes of the beautiful religion that is Islam.
