Several international Dawah workers are active in Taiwan spreading the message of Islam, Yunus Ma Chou-Shien, leader of the Taiwanese Haj mission, told Arab News, adding that the mission comprised 29 members, 18 of them women.
Yunus said more than 100,000 foreign Dawah workers, mostly Indonesian and the rest from countries such as Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, is in Taiwan. “Dawah work is in full swing,” Yunus said.
He said Taiwan had been hosting summer camps for youth leaders from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.
“The camps have been focusing on the true image of Islam that is being misconceived and misrepresented after 9/11,” he said, adding that he also plans to host a conference on Islam around June-July next year, in cooperation with the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs.

Taiwan, which has a population of 23 million including 60,000 Muslims, has also been conducting seminars every three months, with the participation of scholars from Indonesia and other countries, the imam added.
