Young Moslems are coming together
By news staff of Barutiwa Weekly News, Vol. 1, no. 10
16-23 August 1997
Cincinnati, Ohio (BNS): On Friday, August 9, Editor-in-Chief
of Barutiwa Newspaper talked with radio host/commentator, Ishaq
Nadir, about the desire of young African American Muslims to
impinge on the social process.
Mr. Nadir, who presents ISLAMIC
PERSPECTIVES every Friday night on 88.3 FM, believes that it
will be young African American Muslims who will make a
difference. "Young African American leaders must be universal
and inclusive while simultaneously remain independent in
thought," explains Ishaq Nadir.
Mr. Kamau and Mr. Nadir, two
young men, discussed ways on how young activists can use the
internet as a way of communicating and promoting their work
to the larger world.
One subject Mr. Nadir is promoting is
the Islamic Perspectives radio show. The purpose of the show,
according to Mr. Nadir, is to "clean up misconceptions about
Al-Islam in society and to promote the work of Imam Warith Deen
Muhammad [the son and successor to the late Elijah Muhammad
In an effort to convey Islam both young men agreed
that when propagating Islam among African Americans a distinction
must be made between the true Islam and the ramblings of Louis
Farrakhan. Those of you who have followed the various writings
of Baruti Muhammadu D.S. Kamau are aware that Louis Farrakhan
refuses to recognize the veracity of our Noble Qur'an.
