INTERVIEW: Imam Yahya Hendi, On the challenges facing Muslims after 9/11, Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, September 13, 2002 Episode no. 602, Kim Lawton's interview with Imam Yahya Hendi, the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown University.
[There are] two challenges. Number one [is] the challenge of integrating within the American system and being a part of it, despite all the anger, frustration, and rejection, in certain cases, of Muslims being active in the public square. The other challenge is our ability to be honest with ourselves. Within the Muslim community, there are things that need to be changed in terms of how we have conducted ourselves, how we have spoken publicly, how we have led our Islamic institutions. Both challenges have been very demanding.
