On May 31, 2003 the Honolulu Advertiser reported that "Believers All Network founder Saleem Ahmed, who will represent the Muslim viewpoint in an upcoming lecture program... believes looking at different faiths allows a person to realize the aim is to be righteous and treat people equally... here in Hawai'i, the interfaith movement is coming along, he has discovered. 'In Hawai'i, there is such a tolerance and aloha spirit, the idea of Believers All Network was warmly received,' he said. With that in mind, the University of Hawai'i Sakamaki Extraordinary Lecture Series can be seen as extending the trend with its upcoming program, 'World Religions, World Peace: Finding Common Ground.' Last week, about 120 people attended a free lecture to hear three panelists discuss 'Religions, Religious Fundamentalism and Domestic Terrorism.'"
