Muslim Reform Movement decries radical Islam, calls for equality
by Valerie Richardson
It takes courage to stand up publicly to radical Islam, even if you're Muslim. Maybe especially if you're Muslim.
Ask Asra Nomani. On Friday she and a dozen of her fellow Muslims went to the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., and posted a declaration on the door denouncing violent jihad, rejecting Islamic statism and opposing the "ideology of violent Islamic extremism."
The declaration announced the formation of the Muslim Reform Movement, an international organization aimed at countering the beliefs of Middle East terrorist groups like Islamic State in what the document describes as a "battle for the soul of Islam."
