'Meet a Muslim Family' hospitality challenges misconceptions
The Choudhry family has an unconventional strategy for fighting Muslim youth radicalization — inviting strangers into their Woodbridge home.
On Sunday, the family invited 14 non-Muslim Canadians to join them for a casual late lunch. The gathering was part of a two-week campaign called "Meet a Muslim Family," in which Muslim families throughout Canada invited community members into their home for the purpose of uniting Canadian families and dispelling misconceptions about Muslims and Islam.
"There's one way to learn about Muslims — which is turn on CNN, and you'll see people on fire and buildings blowing up and bombs being dropped — or, you can actually see real Muslims in your neighbourhood who have been living here for decades," said Safwan Choudhry, one of the campaign's organizers.
