I take pride in being the first Muslim in the
World to commemorate Holocaust in 2006, and every year after that as a
step towards building cohesive societies, where we care for each others’
suffering and stand up for the other.  

I am committed to the Holocaust and Genocides Education and have been organizing the event for the last 7 years – www.HolocaustandGenocides.com . Our program is inclusive of all faiths.

 It was quite a reflective tour at the Washington Holocaust Museum for me … which I will write about in the coming few days.

ecumenical ways of the world.

Ghouse is a Muslim who originally emigrated from
the Bangalore area of India about 30 years ago.

“I will never claim my faith is superior to
others,” he said. “Every faith is beautiful to
me. The inability to accept the differences of
others causes conflict.”

Ghouse is a frequent-flier in cyberspace, and
many of his commentaries on ecumenical respect
can be found at

, on Facebook and on
Twitter. The multilingual Ghouse also started
talk shows on the radio geared toward the
Diaspora from India and Pakistan. And when
weekend worship comes, Ghouse visits services at
Muslim mosques, Hindu temples, Jewish synagogues
and Catholic churches.
