Muslim Students Association Addresses Misconceptions During “Islam Awareness Week”

October 30, 2013

1030 MSAThe 2010 U.S. Religious Census reported that Montana is the least Muslim state in the country, with only 0.034 percent of the population practicing Islam.  The University of Montana Muslim Students Association reached out to non-Muslims last week to address misconceptions about the religion during “Islam Awareness Week.”  Reporter Kyle Schmauch talked to members of the organization and found that while much of Missoula does not know much about Islam, Muslims are generally well-received by the community.  The MSA has between 30 and 40 members and reports that around 100 Muslims live in Missoula, which is roughly one-third of the entire Muslim population in the state.
