UH Manoa Celebrates Day Muslims Tricked Hawaii Legislature into Honoring Islam on September 11th
By Andrew Walden @ 10:20 PM :: 3119 Views :: Higher Education, Religion


September 24 is September 11 in the old Julian Calendar.  It corresponds to nothing in the Islamic calendar.  

UH Manoa Celebrates 'Islam Day'

From UH News September 22, 2016

On Tuesday, September 27, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa community will celebrate Islam Day with a full day of classes, discussions and a movie screening.

Discussions will include “Andalusian Mystical Philosopher Ibn Masarra” by Professor Tamara Albertini and a roundtable discussion, “What are the most pressing questions facing Muslims today?” with University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa faculty and students. There will also be a movie screening The Mirror by Jafar Panahi. All events take place at Kuykendall 101.

Islam Day 2016 is sponsored by Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute, Pacific and Asian Affairs Council, Shangri La: A Museum of Islamic Art and Culture, and UH Mānoa ethnic studies, history, philosophy, political science and religion departments.

Islam Day (September 24) is a day of recognition for Islam and Muslims in Hawaiʻi. It was established by a symbolic resolution of the State Legislature in 2009. Since September 24 falls on a Saturday this year, the UH Islamic Studies Program moved the celebration to the 27.

For a listing of events please download the event flyer (PDF). All events are free and open to the public.

Islam Day at UH to feature panel talk 

Star-Adv September 23, 2016: “Albertini said in a news release: “Islam Day (Sept. 24) is a day of recognition for Islam and Muslims in Hawaii, established by a symbolic resolution by the State Legislature in 2009. It is not a holiday and no government funds were designated to it, so as to preserve the separation of church and state. Muslims and supporters have seen it as an opportunity to repair the image of Islam damaged by radical Islam.”

Yep.  By celebrating a day which means exactly nothing on the Islamic calendar and just happens to correspond to September 11 on the old Julian Calendar, the professors at UH Manoa are taking an “opportunity to repair the image of Islam damaged by radical Islam.” 

Here is a handy list of Islamic holidays--note that none of them fall on Sept 24 or Sept 27.  UH professors apparently missed their chance to throw a big party for Eid al-Adha which came on Sunday, Sept 11 this year.
