Islam is practiced by1.6 billion people around the world and is often misunderstood by many non-Muslims. On this special edition of Essential Pittsburgh, we present a discussion on the beliefs and practices of Islam held before a live audience at the Community Broadcast Center in cooperation with the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh. Our special guests include SafdarKhwaja, President of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and Wasi Mohammed, Executive Director of the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh.
