News Agencies – July 14, 2012

 

The annual Canadian Muslim Festival was held in Ottawa with the participation of over 20 Muslim countries. The event which celebrates the culture and traditions of the Muslim world, included country exhibitions, Islamic arts and handicrafts, a bazaar as well as fun activities for children.  The festival, which is held annually by the Muslim Association of Canada, aims to introduce Islamic culture and civilization to the local community.

 

The one-day event provided each participating country with a tent to present the arts and culture of that nation. The result was a display of the tremendous diversity of the Islamic world. This annual festival provides a great opportunity to introduce Islamic culture to Canadians.
