Deputy First MInister Jim Wallace describes it as a 'crucial opportunity' to tackle prejudice and dispel myths surrounding Islamic religion.
"Islamic culture has been an inspiration to generations of Scots. Its influence can be seen everywhere: in our architecture, our art and literature, our science, even in our language.
Muslims and others from minority ethnic communities in Scotland and throughout the UK have contributed across the board in so many fields including business and cultural life. This is the perfect occasion to recognise and celebrate that contribution."
