Blogging about Muslim Life

The tragic events around the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the July 2005 London bombings, as well as the growing number of Muslims living in Europe and the United States, has brought forth some attempts by many in Western nations to better understand the Islamic faith. Swedish newspaper, Svenska Dagbladet, recently launched Ramadan blog, which is run by three Muslim bloggers who are giving different perspectives on their daily lives throughout the Holy Month.

In recent years, there has been growing tension between Muslim immigrants from Africa and the Middle East and generally progressive Swedes, who lately have turned their attention to right-wing groups that support anti-immigration policies. From religious intolerance to the increasing number of supermarkets selling Halal foods, Ramadan blog gives viewers an alternative window into what it is like to be Muslim today, with the hope of bring peace and reconciliation in the Scandinavian country.
