This jerk of a writer got my attention when a lot of religious deluded readers keep praising his crap books filled with lies and bullshit.
So, it is not surprised that this jerk of a writer got found out that he not only lied in his books, he lied about a lot of other things including his credential, and about other writers way better than him.
While I don't really give this jerk much thought. I do considered this a public service for other readers to avoid any book of this jerk writer.
"Among the Islamists and supporters of Sharia law, there is one individual in particular who has been capable of making money by misrepresenting himself and his credentials: the tireless self-promoter, Reza Aslan. After 9/11, Reza Aslan found the environment ripe in the United States to make profits by exaggerating and fabricating his qualifications."
