Irshad Manji is an acclaimed journalist, author, TV personality, and media entrepreneur based in Toronto. Ms. Magazine has named her a “Feminist for the 21st Century” and the New York Times has dubbed her “Osama bin Laden’s worst nightmare.” The Trouble with Islam is an open letter from Manji, a Muslim voice of reform, to concerned citizens worldwide — Muslim and not. It’s about why the Muslim community needs to come to terms with the diversity of ideas, beliefs, and people in our universe and why non‐​Muslims have a pivotal role in helping them get there.
