Dr. Edgardo Robin (Soheil Asad) from Argentina who has spent 17 years studying in Gom’s Seminary School and by establishing Islamic and cultural centers in many Latin American countries including Brazil, Chili, Peru, Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, Cuba, Mexico … as well as teaching in 80 Spanish speaking universities, has played a major role in promoting Islamic Culture and religions in that part of the world.
to Public Relations and Information Center of Ministry of Culture and
Islamic Guidance, he said boosting Islam and Islamic Culture in Latin
America is somehow limited because of shortage of Islamic institutions
and shortage of clergies. He said in 25 Latin American countries there
are only 3 clergies.
He added that fortunately those individuals who convert to Islam in
these countries themselves turn to preachers of Islam.
According to him one of the obstacles for promotion of Islam in Latin
America is hostile publicities by some media.
