“During the year, 115 lectures were delivered at various clubs, churches and societies with the number of audiences ranging between 500 and 3,000. Fifteen of these lectures focused on the life of the Holy Prophetsa – a topic, for obvious reasons, of great importance in this day and age and the best approach in the propagation of Islam. Such absurdities are attributed to the character of the Holy Prophetsa that the image of Islam is badly distorted; it is only through presenting to the public the true beautiful character of the Holy Prophetsa that the allegations can be addressed.”
