Imam Johri is a different kind of an Imam, a breed of his own. For someone like me who comes from Karachi Pakistan, meeting Imam Johri was like a breath of fresh air. He is not only an Imam but also a thinker, a scholar, an activist, a musician, an avid golfer and a man who believes in the true tenants of all faiths, which is, that we all come from one God. We caught up with Imam Johri to spend some time and see how an American Imam lives his day.

“I’m dead. That sucks, at least for me and my family and friends. But all the tears in the world aren’t going to bring me back, so I would prefer that people remember the good things about me rather than mourning my loss. (If it turns out a specific number of tears will, in fact, bring me back to life, then by all means, break out the onions.)”

This is a narrative original piece about two Australian surfers who are on an adventure trip to surf the 50 states of America and shoot a documentary about their entire trip. Through this initiative they would like to show to the youth that to enjoy life to the fullest all you need is a dream and the will to fulfill it. According to Jonathan and Stefan, America does not have a good reputation in Australia, and by doing this they feel that they can show the Australian people that you cannot judge a country by the action of a few people. They say that in the past five months of touring America, they have come across many amazing people, and an experience which has completely changed their lives in so many ways. We caught up with them on their recent tour to DC, where they water-surfed in the Potomac River.

This is an enterprise mission story that talks about the film ” God and Allah need to talk”  written produced and directed by a Jewish American film maker from LA Ruth Sharone. The film talks about God and Allah being the same divine power and the fact that Gods children need to talk to each other rather then God talking to himself. The story is set against the backdrop of an interfaith initiative taken by the Ambassador of Bangladesh His Excellency Shamsheer Chowdry together with film maker and interfaith activist Ruth Sharon, to launch and evening of multicultural dialogue and help people from different faith groups and religions to get together and find common grounds amongst themselves and their different beliefs.

The event also marked post thanksgiving celebrations where representatives from all the major faith groups of the world got together to dialogue, communicate, screen the film and at the end of the event they all broke bread together to commemorate the struggles of all world religions to coexist in harmony.
