The Razormind Network presents in association with British Muslims for Secular Democracy, Islamic Circles, The City Circle, The Association Of British Muslims, The Coexistence Trust, and The Ihsan Centre.
Many stories now get told about Islam’s origins today by believers and sceptics alike. How might Muslims best respond to a revisionist account of their faith’s origins? And how do we all debate such issues in a measured fashion when the global response can often be beyond anyone’s control?
We intend to look at these big issues by discussing Tom Holland’s book on early Islam, and the response to his Channel 4 film, Islam: The Untold Story.
The panelists include:
- Tom Holland, the historian, whose latest book is In the Shadow of the Sword.
- Sajjad Rizvi is Associate Professor of Islamic Intellectual History at the University of Exeter.
- Kevin Sim (tbc), the director and producer, made Islam: the Untold Story.
- Rokhsana Fiaz OBE is the Executive Director of the Coexistence Trust.
