Diversity in Islam
Wednesday, December 15, 2004

MIC World Chat

Originally from Pakistan, Nadir Budhwani will draw upon his experience as an Ismaili Muslim, both in Pakistan and the U.S., in a discussion about the history and meaning of Islam, including Muslim observances and festivals. He will also address how culture and Islam have influenced each other over time. Ismaili Muslims maintain a tradition of international service and philanthropy and view Islam as a religion that emphasizes thinking, spiritual faith and intellectual search, and one that appreciates, respects and promotes diversity in its interpretation.

Mr. Budhwani designs and delivers training programs in cross-cultural areas and has been a guest speaker for the Interfaith Dialogue at the University of Minnesota. He holds M.Ed. and MBA degrees in Human Resource Development and Marketing respectively and is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Human Resource Development at the University of Minnesota. He is also an active speaker in MIC's classroom and Great Decisions programs.
