BBC Radio 4: Is a “Feminist re-interpretation” of the Qur’an needed? Zara Faris debates Feminist Ziba Mir-Hosseini

Staunch feminist Amina Wadud claims that ISIS is a “wake-up call” for Muslims who reject a reformation of Islam; her fellow feminist activist, Ziba Mir-Hosseini (legal anthropologist) agrees, arguing that the existence of ISIS should force Muslims to “wake up” to the need for a feminist re-interpretation of Islam.

Yesterday morning, I challenged Ziba Mir-Hosseini on this and her unsubstantiated feminist misrepresentation of Islam, on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour in a short 10 minute program segment.
