Asra Nomani

I just finished reading Asra Nomani's book, 'Standing Alone in Mecca.' As a Muslim woman of uncertain (non-existent) faith myself and around the same age as her I found it an interesting read though somewhat repetitive and contradictory at times. I will be posting a review at chowk soon if I can get off my butt and write it.

You should check out her site.

I stopped in at your blog today and I was wondering if you could help spread the word?

It's about Hurricane Katrina. Katrina hit the southern United States this week. One million people lost their homes, their jobs, and a few lost their lives.

I was reading today and surfing around looking for more information on news that I just received about
Green Day, Alicia Keys, Dave Matthews and Usher have signed on (with other recording artists) for a Hurricane Katrina relief concert.

The concert will air live on MTV, VH1 and CMT; proceeds go to the Red Cross.

Anyway, if you're interested in best music site you might like this site for mp3 music, it's one of my favorites...

Asra Nomani and Irshad Manji are the devil.

I did not enjoy the novel because it represents what the American audience wants to read: oppressed Muslim woman vs. liberated American lifestyle. Again, more generalizations and oversimplifications.

Asra Nomani is a brave and brilliant woman. She deserves respect even from those who might disagree with her.
