Description

The world’s 1.4 billion Muslims encompass an enormous range of beliefs and practices, a world of cultures—from Arab to post-Soviet to Indian to American, and a wide spectrum of movements—from liberal progressive to Islamist. However, today’s headlines all too often highlight the familiar stories of violence and extremism within the Islamic world. Is religion truly the driving force behind these actions? Where is the space for voices of the moderate majority to be heard? In our country, where many became acquainted with Islam only in the context of September 11th, how can we better understand this major world religion? Professor Ali Asani and Mona Eltahawy explore the tensions within modern Islam and how we can better understand them. Moderated by Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe columnist.
