About the Event
Why are Muslim men portrayed as inherently violent?
Does the veil violate women's rights?
Is Islam stopping Muslims from integrating?
Across western societies, Muslims are more misunderstood than any other minority. But what does it mean to believe in Islam in the twenty-first century, to have forged your beliefs and identity in the shadow of 9/11 and the War on Terror?
Tawseef Khan is a qualified solicitor specialising in immigration and asylum law and a human rights activist with over ten years of experience working on refugee and Muslim issues. Now, he’s written The Muslim Problem, highlighting that while we may think we know all about Islam, we are often wrong about even the most basic facts.
Join Tawseef in conversation with Somali-British activist, politician and former Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid for an urgent and eloquent discussion as he explodes stereotypes, sharing an honest and well-researched exploration of how biases and prejudices affect identity both from within and outside the Muslim community. Tawseef will take apart misconceptions and show what it is really like to be a Muslim today, whilst placing Islamaphobia in historical context and giving powerful insights into one of the most hotly contested and topical issues of our times.
Bold and provocative, this event is both a wake-up call for non-Muslims and a passionate new framework for Muslims to navigate a world that is often set against them.
The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a copy of The Muslim Problem: Why We’re Wrong About Islam and Why It Matters, worth £14.99. The 'Stream Only' ticket consists of a ticket to the stream only.
For one night only, the event will be broadcast on 05 April at 18:30 UK time. It will be available to view up to a week after the event has ended and can be accessed Worldwide. If you live in a time zone that does not suit the initial broadcast time you can watch it at any point after the initial showing for one week.
