Arsalan Iftikhar is an international human rights lawyer, author, and founder of the popular TheMuslimGuy.com. He regularly comments on NPR's "Tell Me More" and contributes to CNN, Esquire, and other publications. His most recent book, Islamic Pacifism: Global Muslims in the Post-Osama Era (2011), argues for a pacifist alternative to religious extremism, advocating for a nuanced understanding of Islam in the face of both religious extremism and racism and violence. Iftikhar's funny, incisive commentary and writing has earned him the reputation as one of the most effective and thoughtful ambassadors for a critical understanding of the post-9/11 Muslim experience, "giving voice to the vast majority of Muslims who see violence as an abomination and a sacrilege."
