As President of the multimedia company Sound Vision, Abdul Malik Mujahid has created a critical educational resource for Muslims. His development of the Radio Islam nightly talk show in Chicago is not only a source of support for Muslims, but an important educational link to non-Muslims of Greater Chicago. During his tenure as Chair of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago and in his role as Chair of the Parliament of the World’s Religions (2010-2015), Mujahid spoke with eloquence about the destructiveness of Islamophobia and the need for all people to come together in a spirit of justice and peace. He is the Chair of Burma Task Force USA, National Coordinator of Bosnia Task Force USA, and collaborated with the National Organization of Women (NOW) to have rape declared a war crime. His reflections on current events can be found on his blog with HuffPost.
