HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Local Muslim leaders invited the public to learn about Islam and blast misconceptions about the religion at an event.
The program was called “Meet Your Muslim Neighbors.” It was held at Harrisburg’s YWCA Thursday night.
A panel of four Muslims discussed a variety of issues including sharia law, the hijab and jihad.
“People will connect on a personal basis, not just based on religion, but as humanity on a human basis,” Suima Muntaz of the Community Responders Network said.
Leaders from several mosques also spoke.
