CAIR is Offering Free Qurans to Media Professionals
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today announced that it has a limited number of high-quality copies of the Quran, Islam`s revealed text, available FREE OF CHARGE for media professionals.
Members of the American Muslim community have sponsored the copies of the Quran through CAIR`s Share the Quran " educational and non-proselytizing initiative, which is designed to distribute free copies of the Quran to 100,000 local, state and national leaders.
VIDEO: CAIR Hopes to Educate Americans About Islam
CAIR`s Share the Quran campaign was prompted by President Obama`s 2009 address to the Muslim world in which he quoted from the holy text and by data showing that anti-Muslim prejudice decreases as understanding of Islam increases.
American Muslims have been asked to sponsor the distribution of copies of the Quran to governors, state attorney generals, educators, law enforcement officials, state and national legislators, local elected and public officials, media professionals, and other local or national leaders who shape public opinion or determine policy. Tens of thousands of copies of the Quran have already been distributed.
To take advantage of this offer:
If you are a media professional and wish to receive a FREE copy of the Quran, 1) go to CAIR`s Explore the Quran " web site at: http://www.explorethequran.com 2) click on Request a Quran, " 3) click on Opinion Leaders & Policymakers, " and 4) fill in your name and mailing address on the Share the Quran Request Form.
