Is Islam The Problem?
Friday, March 3, 2017
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
at McKellar Room (UCC 290) Western University
Islam is always in the media, as is the question of its place in our society. Muslims are constantly portrayed as a fifth column; Islam cast as a threatening, radical religion.
Radical groups that commit horrifying attacks of terror and attempt to justify them using Islamic teachings pose severe conflicts. Few of these conflicts include the massive refugee crisis, a travel ban on select Muslim-majority countries, rallies in support of hatred, and attacks on the Canadian Muslim community.
On Friday March 3rd, we have the pleasure to host a panel with world-renowned journalist Mehdi Hasan of Al Jazeera, and esteemed scholar and professor of Islamic studies, Dr. Ingrid Mattson. The panel will consist of predetermined questions and an open Q&A.
We humbly invite you to this important educational opportunity.
