Prof. Hussein Rashid on Cape Town Mosque’s Open Door Attitude

PBS News Hour

Religion Prof. Hussein Rashid is interviewed for this PBS News Hour segment about a mosque in Cape Town that has an open door policy toward non-Muslims, homosexuals, and allowing women to preach. Despite receiving death threats and fierce criticism, experts say the house of worship’s welcoming policies represent an adaptation of centuries-old traditions.
