Salma Al-Farouki: Rediscovering Islam

Salma Al-Farouki simply oozes class when she walks into the Arab News offices for our interview. Wearing a simple turban and purple dress combination, finished off with pearl earrings and eye kohl, she emanates warmth, intelligence and wisdom.

Al-Farouki is also the wife of Roger Garaudy, the French philosopher well loved in the Islamic world and very much the pariah in the West thanks to certain controversies with his 1996 book, “The Founding Myths of Israel,” which was accused of containing elements of Holocaust denial.
