Tami Urbanek Interviewed Me on Being a Muslim in the US

Many thanks to Tami Urbanek for interviewing me for her program Journey for Truth. You can also view the video in YouTube, or listen to the iHeartRADIO podcast. Here are some of the issues covered in the interview:

  • What is the impact on Muslims when a programs similar National Security Entry-Exit Registration System is introduced. Note that “not a single person was found to have any links to terrorist or violent activities”.
  • I explain the core concepts of Islam and whether it promotes violence. Muslim scholars established these concepts over the centuries and now they are even taught in schools. I missed one key aspect though, that Islam’s holy book, the Quran, claims it to be religion sent by God of Moses and Jesus, that is why it shares most beliefs with those religions.
  • The last section of the interview focuses on how we can improve the relations between various communities in the US. I think there is a lot of work needed there, and I do not claim to have all the ideas or solutions.
