A peace initiative is being embarked upon today from 1 pm in the Enterprise community. Even amid the fear by some of criminal activity and gang warfare in the area, two Islamic bodies have launched a campaign called, “Trinidad and Tobago We’re Sorry… Be Better Not Bitter.”

President of the Islamic Front, Umar Abdulla spoke with News Power Now on the effort, highlighting that the collaborative groups will distribute pamphlets, water, snacks, toys and flowers to commuters passing through the Community of Enterprise, Chaguanas with the objective to restore faith in the community and to enhance the relationships amongst its citizens and the general public.

He said the Islamic Front and Masjidus Salaam both hope the effort will persuade the general population to view the Enterprise Community differently.

Questioned on the issue of guns and the accessibility of firearms and ammunition in Enterprise, the Islamic leader said the groups would rather not focus on this aspect of things.

The groups will gather at Crown Trace, along the Southern Main road in the vicinity of Gold Fingers.
