Atif Rashid, an award-winning journalist, podcaster and media producer based in London, joins the call to action #forSafeWorship. He takes us on a mini tour of his local mosque, the Mubarak Mosque of the Ahmadi Muslim community in Tilford, Surrey, United Kingdom.
Atif evokes teachings of prophet Muhammad and the Holy Quran, reminding us that it’s every Muslim’s duty to stand up for the rights of all religions and the safeguard of all places of worship. “We all share that belief in one God,” he said.
An alumnus of the UNAOC and UNOCT joint project EDIN (“Empowering Dialogue and Interfaith Networks”, Atif has worked with the likes of BBC Radio 4 (on their flagship Today program), Huffington Post and various news outlets throughout the UK. He has also been involved in local peace awareness campaigns, delivered talks at interfaith events and given speeches at religious gatherings. He is passionate about interfaith dialogue, preventing extremism, scriptural reasoning and content creation.
