From Here on Earth, November 2:
What goes on in mosques in America? Are mosques a part of the tradition of religious pluralism in America? Can a Muslim be an American? Islamic Studies luminary Akbar Ahmed traveled for a year around the country, visiting over a hundred mosques to find out how Muslims are living every day in America. We want to know about the mosques in your hometown, whether you’re a member of the Muslim community or not. What’s your experience? We’ll collect your responses at insideislam.wisc.edu or on our hotline: 1-877-GLOBE07 and use the best of the them in the program.
- Akbar Ahmed is the Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at American University in Washington, D.C.; a non-resident senior fellow in Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution, and former Pakistani high commissioner to the United Kingdom. He is also the author of Journey into America: The Challenge of Islam.
