The first campaign (January 14 – February 14 2009) was started by four friends Syed, Walski, Marina and Anas. By the end of it, about 50 other blogs also participated helping us to reach a larger audience.There were also many calls for us to extend this very popular campaign.

Well, here it is!

This time around, four more friends will be part of the main team; they are Art Harun, Jahamy, Pah Nur and Nizam Bashir.

To recap, the campaign is not only for Muslims, but also for our brothers and sisters who are Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and those who believe
in God and a proper way of doing things – come join us and share your ideas! You can join this campaign even if you are an atheist!

The goal of this campaign is to encourage people to read the Quran in the language they understand best and find in it areas of common value for our day to day living.

We also want to hear your feedback and comments.

Good and timely move.

It's only by 'drinking deep' that we will understand one another's religions and develop mutual respect.

And of one religion - the religion of Love.

cool! can we extend this campaign to other religions too? It would be a fantastic way to foster understanding and allay suspicions of each other in our country.

The next closest festivals coming up would be Deepavali (Oct), Christmas (Dec) & CNY (Jan). We could do Hindu, Christian and Tao/Buddhist understanding in that order.

Since I'm a Christian, i'd be happy to spearhead the Let's read the Bible campaign!
