Muslim female activist and author Asra Nomani discusses extremism and radicalism in the Arab and Muslim community. Nomani talks about her friend, Daniel Pearl, one of the first Western journalists beheaded by Islamic extremists in 2002, and about how hatred drives extremism in the Middle East. An accomplished author, Nomani confronts extremist threats and attacks constantly because she represents the future of women's rights in the Muslim World.
We also discuss her several books on Islam which have caused a stir in the Arab and Muslim community … a woman leading the debate on politics and the battle between moderation and extremism is unacceptable to many …
Nomani is admired by moderates in the Arab and Muslim community because of her courage to stand up and advocate her views in the face of so much hatred and anger.
Asra Nomani guests on Talk of the Town Radio with host Ray Hanania, 1450 AM Radio every Friday at 4 pm CST Chicago time, and also broadcast live online at www.YahalaVoice.com radio.
