God and Allah need to talk – A film for healing and reconciliation

This is an enterprise mission story that talks about the film “ God and Allah need to talk” written produced and directed by Ruth Sharone, a Jewish American film maker and an interfaith activist from Los Angeles. The film talks about God and Allah being the same divine power and the fact that Gods children need to talk to each other rather then God talking to himself. The story is set against the backdrop of an interfaith initiative taken by the Ambassador of Bangladesh His Excellency Shamsheer Chowdry together with film maker and interfaith activist Ruth Sharon, to launch and evening of multicultural dialogue and help people from different faith groups and religions to get together and find common grounds amongst themselves and their different beliefs.

The event also marked post thanksgiving celebrations where representatives from all the major faith groups of the world got together to dialogue, communicate, screen the film and at the end of the event they all broke bread together to commemorate the struggles of all world religions to coexist in harmony.

They not only encouraged their teenaged son to get involved in business ventures, but alsohelped him set up his own media/entertainment company, called Huqa Entertainment. According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Raakin is on his way to becoming one of the first young South Asian Media moguls in America.
