1 Sahil Badruddin = ""Irshad Manji is Director of the Moral Courage Project at New York University. Deepak Chopra describes her as "the new voice of reform, not only for Islam but for all religions." Her bestselling book, The Trouble with Islam Today, has been published in 31 countries, including Indonesia, Lebanon and Pakistan. In all her work, Professor Manji shows us how to develop "moral courage," the willingness to speak up when everyone else wants to shut you up. Her Moral Courage Project at NYU grooms leaders who will challenge political correctness, intellectual conformity and self-censorship. In the best spirit of higher education, the Moral Courage Project teaches that rights come with responsibilities, that we are citizens before we are members of mere tribes, and that meaningful diversity embraces different ideas and not just identities.""
