Host Dave Stewart interviews Faiz Rahman, president of the Executive Council of the Bloomington Islamic Center and Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at Indiana University. Our conversation touches on the basic tenets of Islam and then presents some tough questions about how Islam is perceived in current events.
