Shaarik Zafar on Muslims, Rhetoric, and Ramadan (podcast)
For Muslims, the holy month of Ramadan begins Sunday night. It marks a month of restraint, self-reflection, and community gatherings. It is a time of both deprivation and celebration.
This week we will speak with Shaarik Zafar, Special Representative to Muslim Communities, a diplomat with the US State Department. Shaarik will speak with us about the significance of Ramadan for Muslims worldwide and how Muslim-majority countries view the United States in the context of rhetoric being used during the current political season.
