Muslims, Mecca, and the State Department

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

As the annual hajj pilgrimage begins, we check in with BBC reporter in Mecca, Shahzeb Jilani. We also talk with the State Department’s Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Farah Pandith, about her work and whether or not she plans to make the annual pilgrimage to Mecca this year. It’s all part of our continuing series on Faith in America.
