‘PRESENTING ISLAM IN A BALANCED AND FAIR ATTITUDE’

Unfortunately, the image of Islam has been tarnished since the beginnings of the 21st century. Starting from the 9/11 attacks in the USA, to the bombings of Madrid and London. It has become a challenge that’s even made more difficult by the ignorance that deforms the simple understanding of this monotheistic religion.
Ignorance…the biggest rival of Islam today. Therefore, at Bridges, we are dedicated to use the light of knowledge to dispel darkness and spread the truth everywhere and to everyone.
