Why Islam Needs A Reformation NowBook - 2015
Continuing her very personal journey from a deeply religious Islamic upbringing to a post at Harvard, the brilliant, charismatic and controversial bestselling author of "Infidel" and "Nomad" makes a powerful plea for an Islamic Reformation as the only way to end the horrors of terrorism and sectarian warfare and the repression of women and minorities. Ayaan Hirsi Ali argues that ordinary Muslims throughout the world want change. Courageously challenging the fundamentalists, she identifies 5 key amendments to Islamic doctrine that must be made in order to set Muslims free from their 7th-century chains. Interweaving her own experiences, historical analogies, and powerful examples from contemporary Islamic societies and cultures, this is not a call to arms, but a passionate plea for peaceful change and a new era of toleration.
