While Irshad Manji will be portraying one side of the coin in the “America at a crossroads” series on Muslims , this Houston-produced program will be rebroadcast in the same series: a round-table discussion that will present the 'mainstream' Muslim viewpoint about and from Muslims who we meet in our daily life; those who love Allāh and His Prophet, while believing the Qurʾān to be the inerrant revelation from God that has to be accepted completely (not to pick and choose as Manji believes). Please cross-post this and email to your friends and family. And pls do send a quick message to PBS. Feel free to post a comment here with the text of your message. A view from the inside: Sh. Waleed mentioned that this PBS round-table involved a very positive discussion, and was carefully deliberated and thought-out in dress-rehearsals, in order to present a coherent image of Islam and Muslims, not the typical “uncles'” views thrown together at the last minute! Here is the announcement from Br. Iesa Galloway:
Please tune-in this Sunday, March 25 at 5PM to watch “The Connection” (rebroadcast on April 19th). This special episode is an extended round table discussion featuring panelists from the Texas Muslim community.
Instead of the typical conversation about Islam and Muslims, Houston PBS has opened the discussion, allowing the conversation to becoming a dialogue with Muslims.
On this program; Sheikh Waleed Basyouni an Islamic Scholar & the founder of the Texas da‘wah Convention (TDC), Br. Rodwan Saleh the ISGH President, Br. Mohamed Elibiary the Freedom and Justice Foundation (F&J) President & CEO and MIST Founder & ISNA Advisor, Shazia Siddiqi discuss common misconceptions and peoples educational needs about Islam.
This special, extended edition of The Connection is entitled “The Truth about Islam” and a rebroadcast of the show will also air as part of PBS's national TV event “America at the Crossroads” on Thursday, April 19th.
