From 7-9 October 1995, a group of activists, academics and media personnel from different parts of the world met together under the auspices of Just World Trust (JUST), at a conference that bore the title 'Images of Islam: Terrorising the Truth'. They came from both the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds, and many of them brought with themselves their own experiences of the demonisation of Islam, seen from the point of view of either Muslims or non-Muslims. Over the course of the three days the participants explored the issues that have come to the fore globally; examined the many different ways in which the distorted image of Islam and Muslims has manifested itself in a myriad of different cultural and political settings, and concluded by pooling their ideas on how to challenge the growing influence of the images today. This book sets out the progress of that conference and charts the path of struggle towards debunking the myths about Islam and Muslims. It outlines the strategies that Muslims and their non-Muslim associates should undertake to break the stranglehold of the dominant international and national structures whose views and responses towards Islam and Muslims are an infringement upon the human dignity of this large section of humanity.
