ARLINGTON, MASS. - Ali S. Asani, Harvard professor of the practice of Indo-Muslim languages and culture, said he knows how to end dehumanization in society — particularly of Muslims.

The solution is death of cultural and religious illiteracy, and the birth of a truly pluralistic society, he said on Nov. 5 at the Dialogue on Islam, sponsored by the Arlington Human Rights Commission, which was held at the Whittemore-Robbins House.
