After Words: Deborah Scroggins, "Wanted Women," hosted by Akbar Ahmed, American University

About the Program

Ms. Scroggins uses the lives of two well-known Muslim women to explore two distinct perspectives on the war on terror and Islamic fundamentalists.  Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali fights against Islam with her writings while Pakistani Aafia Siddiqui, who was educated in the U.S., is a strong proponent of jihad.  She discusses the lives of both women with former Pakistan ambassador to the United Kingdom, Akbar Ahmed.
