Being a Voice for Muslims
Dalia Mogahed: What I do for a living is to try to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the views, opinions, perceptions and aspirations of Muslim populations around the world.
What I try to do is, through survey research, give this population a voice through their own words. Not by projecting my ideas on to them, but by, essentially through my analysis, being a mouthpiece for their voice.
Because I feel that without that – in the absence of a scholarly tool that really represents the views of entire populations – that people in general are silenced by a vocal fringe.
I would define myself as a scientist, and as a translator between two cultures that today are in conflict, but that I believe can live and even thrive by cooperating.
