Asma Uddin, Religious Liberties Lawyer, Releases New Book on Preserving Religious Freedom for All

Asma Uddin, lawyer and legal scholar, has always had an interest in conflicts between religion and the law. Her new book, When Islam Is Not a Religion, looks at how faith in the United States is being secularized and politicized and what impact this has on religious freedom and diversity.

“If religious freedom is not applied consistently, then it will utterly fail to protect anyone. Or so the saying goes, ‘religious freedom for some, is religious freedom for none,’” said Uddin. “The reason for this goes back to the definition of religious freedom—the relationship between the individual and government.”

The Foundation supports other scholars and nonprofit partners working to deepen the understanding of the legal and cultural foundations necessary for a culture marked by openness and collaboration across differences.
