Muslims make up about one-fifth of the world’s population, “yet the religion is often misunderstood or defined by the perverse acts of a few,” event coordinators said.

The local Muslim community encourages respectful and peaceful dialogue to clarify misconceptions and increase the understanding of the religion and way of life.
