As a kid, I was always interested in knowing the unknown- things beyond the confines of the small town in Pakistan in which I was spending my formative years. I would devour every single section, and, in fact, every single word of whatever newspaper or magazine I would find at a small tea shop near my home. With so many magazines and newspapers on offer even at that time, there must have been a single newspaper catering exclusively for the journalistic needs of children? In fact, there was none.
To effectively cater to the journalistic and intellectual needs of Muslim kids in Japan, Alhamdulillah, I am glad to let you know that we are launching a Muslim Kids` Corner on JapaneseMuslims.com website. I am so thrilled about starting this great initiative as, there is no other online resource for Muslim Kids in Japan so far.
The editorial team of the section consists entirely of Muslim kids between seven to 15 year olds who were either raised and/or born in Japan thus speak/read/write the Japanese language like native speakers. It means the section will be in Japanese only. No English at all.
Please join me in welcoming the brave new effort by our future Muslim leaders in Japan. Do not hesitate to give your comments about the upcoming Muslim Kids` section on this site. The kids on this side of the fence need your constructive feedback to improve their message on this effective and thus become better Muslims than we are now.
