Respect Means to Challenge

Irshad Manji is a well-known writer, speaker and progressive Muslim often arguing for reform in Islam.  Her latest book, Allah, Liberty and Love focuses on the “trouble with Isalm today”.

Listen to this interview and you understand why many people call her a dare-devil, but also admire her.  In her own words, respect has been misconstrued today to mean “don’t question or challenge me”, but she certainly does not embody that.

Moral courage and freedom are just some of the values she places more emphasis on than respect and she frequently encourages others not to be silent under a name of multi-culturalism.
