Event: ‘Debunking the myth: Islam and Terrorism’, SOAS, London, 20th Feb 2019

I’ve been invited by SOAS (School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London) University Islamic Society to give a lecture TODAY at 6pm on ‘Debunking the myth: Islam and Terrorism’.

The lecture will see me discussing the usual tropes against Islam (and Muslims), namely that there is some claimed causal connection between Islam and Terrorism, whether it is a claimed interpretation of Islam, sect or unreformed “version”. I’ll examine how such narratives play not just into Islamophobia, but also to justify Western government domestic and international policies.

All are welcome to attend. Event will be recorded Insha’Allah.

Date: 20th February 2019

Time: 6pm

Room: B103 (Brunei gallery building)

Event Description (by organisers):
