US Muslims welcome Anadolu Agency's initiative
World Report News Package will help combat Islamophobia, Muslim leaders say

BALTIMORE, United States (AA) - U.S. Muslims on Sunday welcomed the launch of Anadolu Agency's World Report News Package as a vital weapon against Islamophobia.

Speaking at the annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America-Muslim American Society in Baltimore, Maryland, Azhar Azeez, president of the Islamic Society of North America, said: “I believe when we have Anadolu Agency talking about the accomplishments and achievements of American Muslims, it's really going to help us to share our story with our fellow Americans.”

Mohammad Siddiqi, a retired journalism professor and a member of the World Council of Muslims for Interfaith Relations, said the initiative would help correct the negative portrayal of Islam in the media.

“You are starting a very noble cause, something that is needed not only for Turkey but for all the Muslim world, so that the entire world can know what good things are going on,” he told Anadolu Agency.

“There is not only a need, there is an urgent need.”

Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said: “The news coverage worldwide has been framed in negative, isolated incidents. This is unfair to Muslims and Islam itself.”
