Salam and hello everybody!

First: Eid mubarak to all my muslim sisters and brothers. I hope you had blessed and happy days with your families.

Corresponding to the :iconthe-gap-project:, which alhamdulillah (thanks God) is now making progress, I want to tell you about a great interresligious action here in Berlin.

On the occassion of Nine Eleven young religious people wanted to show, that we all are shocked about such terrorism, that we never accept such acts in the name of any religion.

That's why we - Bahai, Christian, Jewish and Muslim youth - together built a big tower, which consisted of many many cartons, that we had colored and inscribed before. Me for example, I wrote: "Together for a better world".

The project is called "Nein! Eleven", cause in German, "nein" means "no". The interior Minister of Berlin held a speach and there is song by Robert Lee Fardo, which was specially made for this campaign! It's called "Sweet Coco" (Coexistence) and I looove it! Here you can listen to it: soundcloud.com/run-united-offi… :heart:

Moreover every religious group made a prayer on that place, while the other religions were stanidng around them to symbolize "protection". It was so peaceful and so nice meeting other religious people and to exactly know, that they accept you and do not have any prejudices.

The radio and some magazines and newspaper published and still publish some articles about our project. I hope, inshaallah, the feeling and atmosphere of that day will soon expand.

Here you can see some pictures: juga-projekt.de/?page_id=9 and www.berlin.de/sen/inneres/inte…
  • Mood: Zest
  • Listening to: Sweet Coco - Robert Lee Fardo
  • Reading: Will Eisner - Comics and Sequential Art

It is so comforting to know that people of so many different faiths came together for such a good cause =) Thank you for sharing!

I really like the song, too!

schiddebön.
es muss mehr solche initiativen geben. wenn ich sehe, wie die menschen hier aneinander vorbeileben ... dann würden sich vielleicht auch diskussionen wie die leidige hijab-debatte erübrigen, der man anmerkt, wie wenig sich die selbsternannten entscheider wirklich mit real gelebter religion auseinandersetzen.

Ich bezweifle, dass engagierte (und integrierte) Moslems auf der Straße mit irgendwelchen Moslems aus Hinteranatolien zu vergleichen sind. Letztere machen nun einmal die Mehrheit aus und, wenn man den Nachrichten Glauben schenken kann, bestimmt die Mehrheit, wo es langgeht. (Ist ja bei Nicht-Moslems nicht anders.) Und ein Hijab ist nicht gleich Niqab/Burka.

Die Hijab-Debatte wird sich in einem säkularisierten Staat niemals erübrigen, solange manche Leute versuchen, ihre Religion zur Politik zu machen. Das Problem unserer "selbsternannten Entscheider" ist eher, dass sie zu inkonsequent sind: hacken zwar auf den Moslems herum, drücken aber für Christen gerne mal beide Augen zu. Wieviele Steuergelder sind wohl auf den Papstbesuch verwendet worden?

Und die Niqab-Debatte ist weniger eine religiöse als eine gesellschaftliche, - da kann eine Niqab-tragende Muslimah noch so betonen, wie freiwillig sie das trage -, denn bei uns ist das Gesicht die Identität.

Insofern... Solche Aktionen sind ganz süß und eignen sich bestimmt super, um mal ins Gespräch zu kommen, aber sie sind keineswegs repräsentativ für alle Gläubigen (Christen, Muslime, Juden, etc.).
