Since April 20, he (Imam Syed Soharwardy) has been walking across Canada to encourage leaders of all kinds of faith communities to speak out against violence. And leaders of all kinds of faith communities have been coming out to support him.

As the Imam's Walk Against Violence passed through Calgary — his home town — he was feted at a public gathering that featured brief talks or letters from representatives of the Jewish, Sikh, Cambodian Christian and Buddhist, Anglican, Unitarian, and United Church communities, as well as social workers dealing with immigrant and especially African communities.
'Cause I know I've heard on these forums before that Muslims don't do any sort of peaceful protests and stuff.

That is great. I can't see that page. Do you know where I could find out. I would like to support him if he comes through my city.
