In light of the recent Boston Marathon bombing, and escalating American apprehension towards the over 1.2 billion practitioners of the Muslim faith, I feel it is time to set the record straight beyond our popular Muslimerican website forum.
Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Huffington Post blogger and award-winning writer of the Muslim Writers Guild, Dr. Faheem Younus, has announced the launch of his daily Muslimerican talk radio segment.
“In light of the recent Boston Marathon bombing, and escalating American apprehension towards the over 1.2 billion practitioners of the Muslim faith, I feel it is time to set the record straight beyond our popular Muslimerican website forum. By entering talk radio show circles and focusing on the Muslim-American faith, beliefs and loyalty to the United States, listeners may be surprised at how the tenants of Islam comport with many American values,” said Younus.
Dr. Faheem Younus is a medical doctor and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Maryland. Since the September 11th tragedy, Dr. Younus has been a vocal advocate for dialogue between Muslims and Americans. As a champion for peace and religious tolerance, Dr. Younus’ website Muslimerican.com promotes to his fellow Muslims in particular that “there should be no conflict between our allegiance to Qur’an and our allegiance to America.”
“I’m eager to expand the perspective in the conversations being held between Americans in our schools, forums, at dinner tables and now, most prolifically, on talk radio and T.V. forums,” said Younus.
“The opportunity to start the Muslimerican daily radio segment in Alaska – arguably the most conservative state in the Union, and on KOAN’s Tom Anderson Show which airs on a FOX News affiliate in Anchorage, is a victory for freedom of speech while affording a thoughtful, well-intended daily message emphasizing how and why the majority of Muslims support the United States,” added Younus.
Dr. Faheem Younus has published over 50 opinion editorials in various national newspapers. His daily radio segment entitled “Muslimerican” can be heard on the Tom Anderson Show on KOAN 95.5 FM and 1020 AM in Anchorage Alaska or streaming live at http://www.1020KOAN.com from 8 PM to 10 PM Eastern Standard Time.
“Alaskan radio show host Tom Anderson offered me the chance to explore the Muslim faith on air. In a brief daily segment I delineate the good from the bad of our members' actions while interpreting the misunderstanding of Muslim beliefs prevalent in the United States. My segment is an opportunity for radio stations across America to broadcast the same daily message as in Alaska,” said Younus.
“We must collaborate to raise a new generation of Muslim Americans - those who see no conflict between their pledge of allegiance to Qur’an and their pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States. Under the banner of ‘Muslimerican’ online and now on radio, that remains my mission and for which I dedicate every fiber of my being,” added Younus.
Radio stations interested in airing the Muslimerican daily radio segment can contact Dr. Faheem Younus at talk(at)Muslimerican(dot)com or by calling 443-414-0931.
