Interfaith Voices, a radio program syndicated around the country and in Canada recently interviewed Ambassador Ahmed and several members of the team.
From the Interfaith Voices website:
100 Mosques, 75 Cities…and 1 Big Question
What does it mean to be an American when your religion – Islam – is equated with ‘terrorism’ and ‘foreigner’? And what does ‘American’ mean, anyway? To find out, Ambassador Akbar Ahmed and a team of young researchers spent a year criss-crossing the homeland, knocking on doors, praying in mosques and eating in people’s homes. They paint a complex picture of group that doesn’t always get along, from literalist Muslims who reject Western culture, to immigrant Muslims doing their best to live the American dream.
