Sahil Badruddin is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with majors in Chemical Engineering, Religious Studies (focus on Islam and Ismaili Studies), and History (concentration in History of Religions). Sahil often organizes speaking events for intellectuals; in the past, he has helped intelligentsias such as Mohamed Keshavjee at the University of Texas at Austin, Shafique Virani at Yale University and Reza Aslan at the University of Madison-Wisconsin. Despite its wide availability, Sahil noticed there was a lack of good and accessible (centralized) content for a general audience in the field of Religious Studies so, as a hobby, he decided to compile the absolute best material. He strives to offer an objective yet deep understanding of religion given the sea of negativity and misunderstanding.
