Muslim Social Activist Network

(I recently recieved an email requesting me to post this on my website. I am fulfilling that person's request by posting the ad of an invitation. Although, I don't know these people personally, but it seems their cause is genuine. I won't be able to make it, though, I would love to be there.)

Muslim Social ActivistNetwork: You hear it all the time. Concerned Muslims expressing their rage/sadness/helplessness at the state of the world. The Muslim SocialActivist Network is the solution. We meet to share our concerns about poverty, war and oppression and to discuss avenues for effective activism. We are a LAHORE based group, but no matter where you are,whether you’re in Lahore, London or Louisville, KY you can sign up atour sight at to stay current.

Let me clarify though, at the risk of disappointing Lahore’s party-going elite, that the "social" in "Muslim Social Activist Network" has nothingto do with polo matches and pedicure parties. Instead, it relates to the oft forgotten definition of the word, which is "Of or occupied with matters affecting human welfare; i.e. social programs" or "Of or relating to human society and its modes of organization."

So, if you're angered by the cancerous growth of McDonald's franchises; if you're concerned about ongoing political imprisonment in Pakistan, or about feudal and corporate excesses; if you're worried about the rising tide of sectarian violence, or about religious extremism or secular fundamentalism; if you empathize with the Palestinians or the Chechens, or the Sudanese; if the sight of someone less fortunate stirs emotion in you; if you are, in other words, a Concerned Muslim, then MSAN just might be the answer.

Tell a friend.
