Following the recent attacks in Paris social media has been rife with status updates that are motivated both politically and racially. Unfortunately a lot of hatred and fear is being spread and in particular most of this has been aimed at the religion of Islam and also it’s followers.
This is why I put together this short video from an interview that religious scholar Reza Aslan had with CNN at some point in 2014. Check it out and please share it so that people might use it to help fight against the hatred being shown against Muslims in general.
Dr. Reza Aslan, an internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of religions, is author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, which has been translated into twenty-eight languages.
