Islamic Awareness Day

On June 8th 2016, the IISC hosted an Islamic Awareness day with the Calgary Police Service, EMS, Fire Brigade, and RCMP. Sh. Navaid did a presentation on: "What You Need To Know About The Muslim Community in Calgary." The presentation consisted of the Muslim beleifs, facts about Muslims across the globe, facts about Muslims in Alberta and Calgary, and misconceptions about Islam. It was followed by an extensive question and answer session from the audience that revolved around a lot of misconceptions commonly portrayed in the media. The event concluded with the presentation of Plaque to Constable Kelly Mergen from the Calgary Police Service diversity team for the amazing job him and his team did at the One Ummah Conference this year.
