“Hello, I’m a Muslim” or “Bonjour, Je suis Musulman” is the name of the campaign launched by groups of Muslims in ten European capitals giving roses in a show of promoting peace, friendship and coexistence between Muslims and non-Muslims, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
 
Muslims have launched over 50 tents across six cities in Belgium and France to inform the people on Islam as part of efforts to change preconceptions against Muslims.
 
The campaign was first launched six years ago in Germany expanding to the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, France, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Italy and Switzerland.
 
Muslims youths in Canada and Australia have also joined the move for the first time with 210 flowers given to the people across all countries in the campaign.
