There is an important discussion of the Deobandi Islamic doctrine that originated in 19th Century and spread throughout South Asia including indoctrination of Muslim women in Pakistan, Canada and the US involved in the perpetration of the San Bernardino massacre in December 2015.
Our guests are:
Raheel Raza, Toronto-based founder of Muslims Facing Tomorrow author and leading member of the Muslim Reform Movement featured in a new Clarion Project documentary, By the Numbers: Untold Story of Muslim Opinions and Demographics will address Pakistani Deobandi connections in Canada and the San Bernardino terrorist attack, as well as rejection of Sharia valuation and treatment of women including the wearing of Hijabs, “a virtual female isolation chamber.”
Asra Normani, Indian born, Morgantown, West Virginia-based journalist, author, and US co-founder of the Muslim Reform movement. Ms. Nomani, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) for 15 years, is the author of “Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam.” She was the visiting scholar in the practice of journalism at Georgetown University, leading The Pearl Project, a faculty-student investigation into the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. The Pearl Project identified Pearl’s Pakistani Deobandi abductors and killers including Al Qaeda terrorist mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed. Ms. Nomani was the friend and colleague of the late WSJ reporter Daniel Pearl who saw him off on that fateful day in Karachi on 2002 when he was murdered and beheaded. That horrific event changed her life and her views of normative Islam and its subjection and treatment of women, as well as, infidels, Jews, Christians, Hindus and other religions. She remains close to the Pearl Family. Ms. Nomani will speak about her hashtag #too sexy to be seen, the importance of the recent UN report on Female Genital Mutilation and her Declaration of Muslim women rights to intimacy and sexual rights.
