There is still slavery in Africa
December 21, 2001
I refer to a letter by Nazil Baksh captioned "Race has no importance in Islam" I think that he does not have all the facts. There is still slavery practiced in parts of Africa. The slave masters are usually Arabs. He can look at the works of Dr Gates, a black professor from Harvard University and he will get his facts.
He can also look up the internet under Sudan and he will see that there are Christians buying Black Africans out of slavery. Mr Nazil Baksh should call a spade a spade. I would like him to know that I am a converted Muslim.
