Imran is originally from the southern part of India. He came to the USA in 2003 to pursue his Masters in Engineering. He converted to Islam from Hinduism in 2007. He is a member of a grass roots organization called the Islamic Circle of North America - Kansas City chapter (ICNA-KC) that tries to work with Muslims and Non-Muslims in various capacities like Outreach and Relief work.
They will speak on Islamic beliefs, the role of Sharia law in American society, ISIS and radical Islam. We expect an enlightening and informative dialogue. It will be informal with opportunity for questions.

Our guest is Mindy Corporan, CEO of the Faith Always Wins Foundation. Mindy describes herself as a “white girl” raised as a Christian. She will recount the nightmarish story of finding her father, Dr. William Corporan and 14-year-old son, Reat, murdered on April 13, 2014 at the Jewish Community Center. The murderer was a hate-filled lunatic randomly trying to kill Jews. From the chaos at the scene of the murders and the ensuing and devastating grief of losing one’s history and one's future, Mindy, a woman of petite stature but enormous heart and courage, has forged ahead.
Her journey began when she spoke at a student vigil the night of the murders. It has taken her to a mosque where the Muslim family and mother of a 15-year-old son killed by a hate crime requested her presence among them. It has taken her to a Jewish synagogue where she received council from a Jewish Rabbi. It has taken her to weekly prayers in her own church where she has discerned guidance to “bring my people together.”
Mindy spoke at The Kansas City Rotary Club. During her talk, the 150 business attendees sat in hushed silence. She received a rare standing ovation.
Her still fresh Journey will motivate and inspire you.
