Here is a quick primer Q and A with Amer Safir, Editor-in-Chief of The Review of Religions

Who are you?

My name is Amer Safir, Editor-in-Chief of The Review of Religions, a 120-year-old magazine dedicated to demonstrating the relevance and need for God and religion in the modern world. We cover all religions but in particular present the Muslim perspective, from the vantage point of the community I belong to, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. I am also the Director of Translations of MTA International (Muslim TV Ahmadiyya International), the first-ever 24-hour satellite TV Muslim network. In my role I oversee translations into 23 languages across the world in 16 studios, from Africa, to Indonesia, to Europe and the United States.

What’s your business?

The Review of Religions magazine publisher, who now operates on a multi-platform structure across, print, online, videos, and social media. We also publish dedicated editions in Spanish, French, and German, in addition to our original English edition. We offer paid subscriptions to our magazine edition content. MTA is a global satellite TV station operating on 8 satellite channels, and streaming across various online platforms and smart apps. We offer leading Muslim-orientated programmes, in a contemporary fashion.

Why are you at Congress?

I have been attending Congress since 2016’s Toronto Congress. Congress has provided a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the industry, across a range of regions and media brands. This knowledge is useful to bring back to our organisation. Further, the congress provides an excellent opportunity to network with new and old colleagues. I hope to bring more awareness to our publication at the congress.

What should people come and see you about?

We are a leading publication in The Review of Religions for comparative religious content from an Islamic perspective. We regularly feature articles on other religions as well. For MTA International, we cover 23 global languages across 8 satellite TV stations.
