The White House says a terrorist is not a radical Islamist. Do you agree? If you were a Muslim, how would you feel about having your life reduced to being a reflection of the actions of those who would choose to do evil in the name of religion.
How do the actions of Kouchi borthers, or the Tsarnaevs, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda and other extremists affect those who peacefully follow an ages old religion?
Critical Conversations hosts Lisa Ruth and Jim Picht welcome Rahat Husain, a writer on contemporary and international issues.
