Category: Faith & Spirituality, Featured, Highlights, Videos Topics: Ashura, Dalit, India, Muharram Views: 845

The world's oppressed people always paid the price for their weakness, regardless of their faith and geography. So how does Islam motivate its followers to stand for the oppressed people? How did Prophet Muhammad prepare a community of believers always to be a witness to justice?

Dr. Mike Ghouse has a record of standing up against injustices of people of several traditions, from Atheists to Zoroastrians and everyone in between, including the LGBTQ and the Native American communities. Dr. Ghouse has taken an interest in the oppressed communities in general and the Dalits and Adivasis of India in particular. While he was one of the founding board members of Memnosyne Foundation, dedicated to the upliftment of Native American nations, he has developed relations with various American tribes as well as the Maya in Mexico.

Dr. Mike Ghouse is a social scientist, public speaker, thinker, author, newsmaker, and interfaith wedding officiant. He is deeply committed to Pluralism in religion, politics, societies, human rights, and religious freedom. He is the founder and president of the Center for Pluralism, Director at the World Muslim Congress, a think tank. His new book American Muslim Agenda is available on Amazon. He is committed to building cohesive societies and offers pluralistic solutions to issues of the day. His mission is to open people’s hearts and minds toward fellow humans.  TheGhouseDiary
