Md. Muslims reach out to community


In the decade following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Muslim Americans said that their lives have become more challenging, with misinformation and discrimination hindering public opinion of them. Muslims in Maryland are taking the opportunity to outreach among their community, explaining their religion and trying to create bridges between cultures. A survey conducted showed that people still hold many false opinions to be true, and the Muslim community hopes to correct that.

The survey also showed that Muslim Americans were more optimistic about the future of the United States than non-Muslims, and that twice as many were satisfied with the direction of the country.
