Translations can change Wests attitudes to Iran and Islam

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE FA

 

At the meeting "Conveying the Iranian and Islamic Ideas to the International Audience" the Swiss professor, Patrick Ringgenberg said that the translation of the Iranian and Islamic works into other languages can change the Wests attitude to Islam and Iran.

According to the public relations office of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO), this meeting was held on the sidelines of the 27th Tehran International Book Fair on Saturday May 3 as Ringgenberg, an scholar in theology and aesthetics asserted that the task of changing negative pictures illustrated of Islam and Iran can be accomplished through good translations and financial support, IBNA reported.

 

"Nowadays, this picture is so bad, of course Im mostly talking about it in France, Switzerland and Germany and I dont know much about the other European countries. But this has caused for example the French publishers to avoid in printing works on Islamic and Iranian culture since they believe that people are not interested in such issues and they will face financial flop," he said.

"For example, four years ago I authored a book on the Shrine of Imam Reza (AS) which included beautiful photos, but when I proposed it to some French publishing institutes they all rejected the work, however I believe it has its own audience in French, but it is difficult to persuade the French publishers to print and distribute them," Ringgenberg addad.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the scholar noted: "Its evident that works on Buddhism are more welcomed in Europe than the works on Islam and its a result of a false propagation against the latter, nevertheless organizations and institutes such as the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization in Iran can contribute to remove this problem."

It is worth mentioning that the pavilion of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization is available at, 2nd floor of Shabestan, International Section of the 27th edition of Tehran International Book Fair.
