There are various visit-worthy museums in Algeria, such as the Museum of the Revolution, the Museum of Antiquities in Algiers, the Museum of Modern Art in the same city as well as the Ahmed Zabana National Museum. But the Algerian Museum that boasts of the oldest collection of exhibits, is definitely the Archaeological Museum of Cherchell, which houses and showcases certain fascinating remnants that date all the way back to the prehistoric times. It also happens to be amongst the few museums of the country which gives you traces of the Roman civilization. Given that so many major rulers have come and gone after that, and it has been over 19 centuries since then, the fact that the ancient ruins of typical Roman public baths, their infamous theatres and the Basilica are still preserved, go on to make a major point about the peace-loving, diversity and culture-loving traits of the Islamic rulers all along.
Spirit of Brotherhood, Tolerance and Mutual Harmony
It is deeply unfortunate that the perception of Islam in the worldview, has ended up being so skewed today. The main culprit for projecting this kind of negative image of such a glorious and peace-loving religion, is radical Islam. Despite being a stark minority, the attitude and ideology of radical Islam is being considered as the voice of all Muslims across the globe. But we must realize the fact here that the views of a fragment of bigots doesn’t account for the thoughts and beliefs of the followers of one of the largest religions of the world. Islamic Organization for Education, Culture and Sciences has been striving hard to showcase a positive outlook of Islam, and showcase the myriad beautiful achievements in the cultural, scientific and cultural realm to name a few. Replicating the kind of events that were organized in Tlemcen, is definitely the need of the day, in order to propagate the positivity, vibrancy and peace-loving traits, of the majority of the global Islamic community.
