Ministry prepared to send lecturers to allay Islamophobia in the US

The Higher Education Ministry is prepared to send lecturers who are experts in Islamic studies to explain on Islam so as to check Islamophobia in the United States and other parts of the world.

Its deputy minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said the country had many experts in the field who could correct the misconception about Islam among Americans and other westerners.

In fact, he said, many lecturers from Malaysia were once lecturers or guest lecturers at foreign universities.

“Whether Islamophobia is deliberately created by the West or they simply fail to understand the religion, it is important for us to correct the misconception about Islam.

“Otherwise, Islamphobia will create problems, especially for companies owned or products produced by Muslims which may be feared or turned away by the West,” he told reporters after attending an Aidilfitri open house in Kampung Lebak Seberang, here, Sunday.
