Salman Rushdie earned the muftis’ wrath by insulting the prophet Mohammed.
Raheel Raza’s crime was trying to praise him.
A journalist and activist for inter-faith dialogue, Raza is no stranger to hate mail or crank calls. She’s even been pepper sprayed for criticizing her fellow Muslim immigrants in print — the “whining” ones “from despotic regimes where they don’t have any rights, and as soon as they land here, they start yelling ‘human rights’ and ‘racism.'”
This October, however, Raza experienced a career first: a fatwa.
Raza was also part of that panel in Montreal about creeping sharia, “human rights” and stealth jihad.
Raza was on O’Reilly last night to talk about the Ground Zero mosque and seems to have made a good impression (VIDEO).
