A conversation about Humanitarian Islam with Holland Taylor, a high-level advisor and emissary of the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) of Indonesia, the largest Muslim organization in the world with 50 million supporters. NU is engaging in a systematic recontextualizing of Islamic Law to meet the realities of our time. It has been outspoken against the weaponization of Islam, and other religions, proposing, instead, that Islam is a system for moral and spiritual development, not a political ideology. In the few years since the Declaration of Humanitarian Islam, the movement has received the support of major international organizations including the Centrist Democrat International, which includes moderate democratic parties in Europe and the Americas. The movement’s influence in Asia and the Middle East also continues to grow, offering a model for how religion can benefit humanity rather than divide it.
