From: Marco T.
Sent on: Sunday, September 4, 2011 1:05 PM

The British Humanist Association and the Central London Humanist Group are pleased to announce that Rashad Ali, former leading counter-Secular propagandist for Hizb Ut Tahrir in World Affairs Journal, has agreed to chair their upcoming panel discussion part of the Campaign for a Secular Europe.

Rashad Ali lectured and taught in Saudi Arabia and has an interest in Islam related issues. He was also involved with non-violent extreme political parties for several years, after being indoctrinated by Hizb ut-Tahrir. He subsequently renounced Islamist extreme political ideas for a more traditional version of Islam that he believes promotes harmony and tolerance.
