In Conversation With Kashif Sayed

Nirmala Garimella
07/06/2017

Kashif Sayed was born and brought up in Pakistan in a religious family. His grandfather would feed and serve poor people. At the time of partition of India and Pakistan several Hindus handed over their belongings to his grandfather before leaving for India to come back and collect them at a later convenient time.

He immigrated to the United States in 2000. He has consulted as a software engineer in Silicon Valley, Texas, Michigan, and Illinois. He finally moved to Boston area over 12 years ago.

He has been active member of the Outreach team of the Islamic Society of Boston. He has been serving as a volunteer teacher of Islam 101 at ISBCC, Roxbury and ISB Cambridge for the last 7 years.

He has done presentations on Islam at various churches, schools and nonprofit organization in the greater Boston area.

He has been active in charitable work through ISBCC in greater Boston area for the last 7 years specially focusing on Interfaith charity concept: dialogue of the hands, the heart and the mind.

How can communities work together to dispel some of the myths on Islam? ( if there are any)

We do interfaith charity together based on the concept of the dialogue of the hand, heart and mind. This is an excellent way to get to know people from other faith in a productive environment and inform people about our faith.

What are some of the efforts from your own end which you hope can bring about change?

Offering free Islam 101 classes weekly with Q&A sessions, building long term relationships with people from other faiths and doing interfaith charity together will help dispel the misinformation about Islam in the media. In the long run it will help develop a better understanding of Islam.
