On October 25, 2001 The New York Times featured the article "A Daughter of Islam, and an Enemy of Terror" about the efforts of Aasma Khan, co-founder of Muslims Against Terrorism. "The Sunday after the tragedy, she and 10 colleagues formed a Web site and syncronized their mission: education. They developed a curriculum, sent speakers to schools in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, and made a presentation at a Columbia University workshop attended by 400 directors of after-school programs. 'The best way to stop the cycle of hate is through education,' maintains Ms. Khan."
