Thank you very much for the Sept. 26 article “Muslim prayer room set up in Japanese shopping mall.” As a Bangladeshi working for a Japanese company, I was so surprised to see the article when some people were making fun of the prophet for 1.5 billion Muslims because of a humiliating short film that sadly depicted him as having a bad character. Some newspaper publishers in Europe went further, publishing heartbreaking pictures of the prophet, whose only message was to “Believe in Almighty God.”
Once again, the Japanese people and this newspaper have showcased this nation as a peaceful one that is always tolerant toward other religions, cultures and ethnicities.
