Irshad Manji is a 35-year-old Muslim woman who is challenging other Muslims to reform their religion. Her book, The Trouble with Islam, has been a best-seller in Canada and is being published this week in the United States. Manji's radical views and radical life (she's openly gay) has earned her the devotion of many — and the wrath of others. NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports.
