Perspectives: Faith Without Fear: The Struggles of a Muslim Feminist and Reformer

Thanks toujoursdan for posting an interview with Muslim author Irshad Manji, who talks about faith vs. dogma, and whose film "Faith without Fear" examines her journey to reconcile her faith in Allah and her pursuit for freedom. She is the internationally best-selling author of The Trouble with Islam Today: A Muslim’s Call for Reform in her Faith. "Faith Without Fear" airs on PBS on April 19 at 9 PM. You can get more information here.
My apologies, but you'll have to visit his page to see the interview. But, I am posting here 2 clips from "Faith Without Fear." I think her message is relevant for this particular day in the Christian Church calendar, but I also believe she has wisdom to offer us Anglicans as we struggle for reformation, integrity, and unity in our own Communion.

Her website is here. You can see other interviews and learn more about her struggle there.
