RISING UP WITH SONALI KOLHATKAR: FEATURING JUAN COLE – Islam is the youngest of the world’s major religions – and sadly the most misunderstood especially in the West. A whopping 1.5 billion humans identify as Muslim.

Now, a new biography of the Prophet Muhammad attempts to correct the record on a holy figure that has been maligned by Islamophobes for years.
