Interview to air Friday 3pm | Sat 11am

Did you know Iowa is home of the oldest mosque in America?

In response to a distrurbing rise in reports of Islamophobia, talk of Muslim travel bans and the new administration's emphasis on radical "Islamic" terrorism, Imam Taha Tawil, the leader of North America's oldest mosque, has scheduled a multifaith rally for this Sunday, March 26th at 3pm to encircle the Mother Mosque of America in Cedar Rapids.

Enjoy a conversation about the rally and related topics. Imam Taha stresses that it's not as much a Muslim rally as a rally for Americans of all faiths and even non-faiths to stand for the Constitution, the freedom to practice religion, assembly and exercise free speech which are birthrights of all Americans.
