Rais Bhuiyan was shot point-blank in a near-fatal hate crime ten days after 9/11. Not only did he forgive his attacker, he also fought to save his attacker's life.

Richard McKinney planned to detonate an explosive at a Mosque. After he was given a Koran, everything changed.

Hear from these two men who have traveled on unbelievable journeys from hate to love, joined by Joshua Seftel, the filmmaker who told their stories for the Emmy-nominated series of films, "The Secret Life of Muslims." This event, moderated by Yasmin Amer, producer of WBUR's Kind World podcast, is a testament to the power of redemption, showing just how much is possible when we choose to overcome hate.

Panel:

Rais Bhuiyan - Founder & President, World Without Hate
Richard McKinney - U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, Activist
Joshua Seftel - Series Creator and Executive Producer
