Natasha Bakht Talks to The Star about Belonging and Banishment

Natasha Bakht, the editor of Belonging and Banishment: Being Muslim in Canada (TSAR Publications), was interviewed by the Toronto Star about "the status of women in Islam, integration in Canada, and whether there is a single Muslim identity." Bakht, a law professor at the University of Ottawa, states that she wanted Belonging and Banishment "to portray a diversity of views. The things (contributors) have chosen to write about appear to be things that have been thrust on Muslims, like the war on terror, but other things are things you don't hear about, like what it's like to raise Muslim children or to be a scientist and Muslim."

Head to the TSAR book launch tonight at the Gladstone Hotel to see Bekht and other TSAR authors read (including former Open Book WIR Nitin Deckha). See our events page for details.
