'The Case Against Jihad,' my new book by Farzana Hassan


My book, "The Case Against Jihad", has just been published, aptly on the anniversary of 9/11. This may seem rather a late repudiation of the hateful ideology behind those attacks, but it remains necessary because terror has continued to take innocent lives in the East and West alike. The title confirms the obvious link between radical jihad and terror, and the book makes the case that it is necessary and possible to refute the terrorist's world-view Islamically, by tapping into more benign principles contained in the Quran and related Islamic teachings.
