Beginning next week Monday, Worldview will begin a week-long series on Islamic Reform‚ ‚ (May 3rd-7th). Muslims around the world have made a bold call for reform; from alternative Quranic interpretations on women to Islamic bio-ethics, today's Muslim reformers encompass a wide range of different ideas and are engaged in creative solutions aimed at transforming global Muslim societies. This entire week, we'll take a look at the history of reform in Islam, as well as the sweeping reforms taking place around the world today. We'll talk about the Gallup Poll on the Muslim World, the evolution of the Islamic State, issues around bio-ethics and genetic-modification in Islam, Muslim women and Islam in America, and debate the issues with today's most prominent Muslim Reformers.
We hope that you'll tune in to this conversation and add your voice to the dialogue, by commenting online or sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Worldview airs daily at 12PM and 9PM on WBEZ 91.5FM -- you can also listen anytime online at chicagopublicradio.org/worldview.
