A couple of reality TV shows have recently turned the spotlight on Muslim life in America. Charlotte-area Muslims largely welcome the increased attention on their faith and culture, but say they're a more diverse group than television would have you believe. To prove the point, fifteen local Muslim organizations invited elected leaders, political candidates, police and public health officials to "Meet the Muslims of Charlotte" at a reception Thursday night. We captured a few of their voices. Danial, Adam, Sean and Shabeeb Arshed (L to R). Zubina Mawji Dahya Mariem Masmoudi Teresa Mutakabbir Keith Stringfellow
