Many Muslims live here

This was from the article, The Muslim News Awards for Excellence shortlist, in The Muslim News.

Karen Armstrong is an author who writes extensively on religion. A former nun who describes herself as a ‘freelance monotheist’, she has advanced the theory that fundamentalism in religion is a response to and a product of modern culture. Ever since 9/11 she has been in demand all over the world as a speaker and writer to explain Islam and ‘religious fundamentalism’. Last year these visits included trips to Malaysia, Turkey, Jordan, Singapore, and Egypt, where she received an Al Ahzar award for services to Islam. Among the numerous books she has authored are: the best-selling A History of God, Muhammad: Prophet for Our Time, and Islam: A Short History.
