Asra Nomani, co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement and author of Standing Alone: An American Woman's Struggle for the Soul of Islam, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday morning. Her original goal was to discuss President Trump's address to Muslim leaders in Riyadh, but she began by talking about the previous night's horrific terrorist attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.
"It's a grim morning," said Nomani. "I know so many young folks who love Ariana Grande. It could be any concert, anywhere. It's just another tragedy."
"I also feel the connection to the reality of the patterns of Islamic extremism and terrorism," she continued. "We know that the U.K. has a history of radicalization."
