Lecture Event: ‘Islam & Democracy – In Antagonism?’ (Uni of California, Davis, USA)

MRAK

I have been invited by a student society of the University of California, USA (Davis Campus) to present a lecture on ‘Islam and Democracy: In Antagonism?’. The lecture will discuss democracy from a historical, philosophical and practical perspective. I will also be discussing sharia law, the Muslim community in the West, and a discussion on ‘modernity’, and what the Muslim perspective is towards it.

The lecture will be held on 30th May 2014, at 6pm in the Giedt Hall, room 1001.

    2 examples of how “freedom of speech” inside the US run, capitalist empire doesn’t really apply.
