1.  Growing Up in Botswana
By Fatima Jada Bardien,IslamOnline(IOL)]
"Dumela!" This is the greeting of the Botswana (people of Botswana). I was born in South Africa but grew up in a little town known as Lobatse in Botswana. I am usually teased that if people drove too fast they might just miss the town itself! Botswana is very peaceful and crime is at a minimum. I don't remember ever locking our gates or doors during the day, al-hamdu lillah.

Islam is the third largest religion in Botswana, following Christianity and indigenous beliefs. Islam came to the country through Muslim immigrants from South Asia, who settled in the area during the British colonial rule. Muslims comprise less than 1 percent of the population. The relations between the different religious groups remain peaceful and friendly despite rising inter-religious tensions in the other parts of Africa.
