Ali lived in Libya, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan, as part of a progressive Muslim family, before he moved permanently to Canada in his twenties. He is a trained physician and a vocal advocate for secularism, science, and reform, particularly in the Muslim community.

We spoke about whether someone can be culturally Muslim, whether there’s something uniquely problematic with the doctrine of Islam, and what people like Reza Aslan get wrong about the faith.
