Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or here!In this episode, Dalia Mogahed, Director of Research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, talks about the report “Measuring the Legal and Media Responses to Ideologically Motivated Violence in the US.” She uncovers the results of this report, which reveals that perceived Muslim perpetrators of ideologically motivated crimes are treated differently by the media and by law enforcement, leading to vastly different sentences. The discussion also delves into the implications of these differences for American Muslims and for the larger community and proposes some strategies to guard against these disparities. This interview was conducted by MuBANY Director, Maryam Jazini.
