Muslims - Normal Too

I’m campaigning to wipe out stereotypical ideas of what it means to be a Muslim and to change people’s perspectives so they realise that the word ‘Muslim’ defines a whole range of people from different backgrounds and with different interests. I'm sick of Muslims being portrayed as crazy fanatics.

My family are Muslims and I feel strongly about Muslims being portrayed as terrorist or extremist, as I know that’s not what Islam is about.

I want to show the diversity of Muslim culture and I think once people see that Muslims are normal too we can get rid of the negative stereotypes once and for all.

I want to run a poster campaign to help challenge perceptions of what a typical Muslim looks like. I also want to organize a festival featuring Muslim artists, musicians and comedians to get the audience to experience different elements of Muslim culture.
