The last article in the Autism Spectrum disorder series explores the common myths and misconceptions the general population has on autism.
It is important to clear up any myths /misconceptions - not only so that your perception of autism is not clouded by them hence reducing the social stigma, but also so that you can debunk these myths when other people say them to you.
This lack of understanding can make it difficult for people on the autism spectrum to have their condition recognized and to access the support they need. Misconceptions can lead to some people who have autism feeling isolated and alone. In extreme cases, it can also lead to abuse and bullying.

The settlement of Indians in Zanzibar gained momentum between 1840 and 1860’s when Sultan Seyyid Said transferred his capital from Muscat to Zanzibar. This was further assisted by improved travelling facilities between India and East Africa. Apart from Khojas, Bohra, Memon, Kumbhar, Cutchi Bhadala, Bhatia, Lohana, Shah and various other Muslim and Hindu communities made their way to Zanzibar. They also included a small segment of Parsi. By the 1870’s there was at least one Hindu temple in Zanzibar with its characteristic pointed tower and various Mosques built by Indian Muslims of Sunni and Shia sects.
