Mustafa Akyol joins us this episode to talk about his recent book, “Islam without Extremes.” Akyol is a Turkish political commentator and author based in Istanbul, Turkey. I first became aware of him through his TedTalk. I was quite amazed and proud of him addressing the troublesome issues facing Islam. There is vast ignorance out there among non-Muslims and within the Muslim global community. These misconceptions eventually, and unfortunately, lead to Islamophobia and Islamic extremism. Akyol’s book, “Islam without Extremes” takes beneficial steps towards eradicating these misconceptions.
