Diffused Congruence: The American Muslim Experience

For this episode we are joined by Omer Mozaffar, thought leader, film critic, and educator in the Chicagoland area, to discuss the alarming instances of sexual and spiritual abuse perpetrated by leaders within the Muslim community. He discusses his difficult role in mediating some of the high profile cases he has been involved with which we then used to delve deeper into defining terms like predatory behavior, spiritual abuse, secret marriages, etc. that often come up as the community grapples with these issues. Join us for a riveting and timely discussion, as more and more cases of sexual abuse and predatory behavior seem to be emerging more and more frequently both within the Muslim community and the broader society at large.
