Description

In Pakistan, Faizan Peerzada staged a performing arts festival despite bomb attacks. In Algeria, radio comedian Mohamed Ali Allalou lampooned fundamentalists on the airwaves. Karima Bennoune illuminates these and other inspiring stories of the Muslim writers, artists, doctors, lawyers, activists, and educators who often risk death to combat the rising tide of religious extremism within their own countries. From Karachi to Tunis, Kabul to Tehran, these heroic trailblazers represent one of the best hopes for ending fundamentalist oppression worldwide.
