A Campaign entitled “Inspired by Muhammad” has been launched in Europe, especially in the United Kingdom, to improve the public understanding of Islam and Muslims.
It showcases Britons demonstrating how Muhammad inspires them to contribute to society, with a focus on women’s rights, social justice and the environment.
The campaign coincides with a national polls conducted by YouGov which shows that the 69% of people believe that Islam encourages the oppression of women, that just 6% of people associate Islam with justice and that just 6% believe that Islam promotes active measures to protect the environment.
Overall, nearly half of all people in the UK believe that Islam does not have a positive impact on British society. The campaign is held by the Exploring Islam Foundation.
