Sept. 27, 2018. Imam Zaid Shakir addressed a passionate crowd of protesters from diverse communities (Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and others) who joined hands to greet Prime Minister Narendra Modi with loud slogans and a sea of placards upon his arrival at San Jose’s SAP Center for a stage-managed Silicon Valley “community reception.”

The posters, chants, and surprise banner drop challenged the Modi PR team’s attempts to whitewash the controversial politician’s record. The protest was the culmination of a month-long campaign to educate Silicon Valley leaders and elected officials about Modi’s troubling human rights record.

In his farewell sermon, the Prophet (S) called on us to abandon racial prejudice and gender inequity, reflecting the Qur’anic message of diversity and oneness. The Rev. Dr. King made the same appeal 50 years ago at the height of the civil rights movement. Today, we as a community and society continue to struggle with these divides. How far have we come and how far do we have to travel in realizing the Prophetic vision for a more perfect unity?

Imam Zaid Shakir Talks about a vision for harmony and cooperation between the many different races and cultures that make up the American Muslim fabric.

While the issue has its particular and unique distinctions, it cannot be separated from the rising violence against African Americans and Latinos, or the increasingly inflammatory rhetoric and exclusionary politics driving the national debate on immigration.
