A group of Muslims in Leeds, UK, had their own rose event on the 7th of September. Here’s what one of their youngest volunteers wrote about their event:
“On the 7th of October 10 volunteers decided to spread a positive message on our prophet Mohammad (PBUH) by giving out 500 Roses which had a quote or a message about or from Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) to people around Leeds town center.
We did this because the media has given a wrong message to people all around the world about Islam and our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). So instead of a violent protest we tried to show people in a peaceful and mannered way the truth about our Prophet.
Many people asked us about what we were doing and they all agreed that this was the best way to get the message across.”
