ife hol mem day NEW

Holocaust Memorial Day, 21/01/2015.

The IDC Team attended a presentation by local Jewish Author Diana Finley on her book “The Loneliness of Survival”. The presentation was part of the “Holocaust Memorial Day” commemorations and the presentation focussed on the Holocaust, anti-Semitism and the evil of mankind.

It was a good chance for IDC to network with the Jewish community,  guests and also distribute gift boxes.


What Does Christmas Mean To You?



Today, the teams from Newcastle and Middlesbrough came to Newcastle City Centre to launch our new campaign: What does Christmas mean to you?

It was an opportunity to talk to the general public about Christmas and give the islamic perspective on this AND our belief in Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him!)

As well as asking the question What does Christmas mean to you? The public was asked to fill in a survey. The survey was conducted to get the public’s perception on christmas, Jesus and Islam.

As a thank you Teas and Muffins were given out to those who participated.

An Excellent Day All Round!!

On Sunday 9th November 2014 IDC’s Daniel Johnson delivered a talk on the Islamic positions on extremism and terrorism at St Bede’s Catholic School in Lanchester, County Durham. The talk was given after the School’s Remembrance Day Service on the occasion of Remembrance Sunday and included a Q & A session covering Islam, extremism and life as a British Muslim. The talk was excellent opportunity to clear misconceptions.
