As a prelude to the October issue of New Internationalist on Islam in Power, contributors Ziauddin Sardar and Nafeez Ahmed as well as poet and film maker Mahmood Jamal will be discussing issues around progressive Islam. We’d love to see you there!
KNOWLEDGE IS LIGHT. DEFINING THE CULTURE OF ISLAM IN THE 21st CENTURY
Join New Internationalist for a panel discussion in association with Asia House and the Commonwealth Journalists Association.
Tuesday 8 September, 6.45pm at Asia House, London
How will the culture of Islam be defined in the 21st century? In this special
panel discussion authors and political commentators look at how Islam’s rich
cultural heritage has been hijacked by extremist views from within and
distorted by negative perceptions in the West.
The panel is chaired by New Internationalist and co-incides with our forthcoming issue on Islam in Power. The panellists will discuss opportunities for reinvigorating Islam.
Nafeez Ahmed, author and political scientist.
Mahmood Jamal, poet and film-maker.
Ziauddin Sardar, author and cultural commentator
