A world famous Muslim scholar who has converted 15,000 people to Islam is coming to Rochdale.Well a glowing report there from the British Asian News.
The Deen For All organisation, who organise many multi-faith events throughout the year invited Shaykh Khalid Yasin to talk about the challenges facing Islam at the Gracie Fields Theatre.
Already 800 tickets have been snapped up and a further 200 are available for the free event.
The Shaykh is from New York. He grew up as a Christian but embraced Islam in 1965 and has since delivered lectures in more than 37 countries resulting in over 15,000 people converting to the religion.
Deen For All spokesman, Hanief Mohammed said: "It is not often a small town like Rochdale is fortunate to have scholars like Shaykh Khalid Yasin agreeing to visit us.
"He has memorised the holy Qu'ran and has studied Islamic history as well as the Arabic language.
"He is the chairman of the Islamic Information Trust and a founding member of the Islamic Information Network Purpose TV.
"We were asked to hold the event in Manchester where the venues are bigger.
"However, given we are a Rochdale based organisation, it was felt to find the biggest arena in Rochdale and Gracie Fields Theatre fitted the bill.
"We also decided to make it a free event. Anyone wishing to attend simply has to register on our website www.deen4all.org and obtain their free ticket."
Deen for All has also invited Shaykh Zahir who is well known for his "inspirational" talks and has travelled to different parts of the world to hold lectures aiming to reach out to young people by delivering his lectures in English.
However, they fail to mention that this scholar supports death penalty for gays, denies Al-Qaeda exist, denies Muslims were reponsible for 9/11, says non-muslims cannot be your friends, sees non-muslims as inferior, etc etc.
Asian News you useless FUCKING cunts.
