You must register your intention to attend this event via Eventbrite here, this is free to do so and very important so we know how many intend to attend. If you do not register your name you will not be allowed into the event.

London is probably the most diverse and vibrant city in the world. One in eight of our fellow Londoners is a Muslim, but how much do we know about London’s Muslim communities? And how much do they know about Humanism? Is there common ground? What diversity exists amongst Muslims in London? What is changing? Can we see beyond our differences? How can we work together?

This evening of discussion is a unique opportunity to address these questions and others you may wish to ask.

Alom Shaha author of “The Young Atheists Handbook” will be in conversation with:

Mamadou Bocoum – Public Relations Officer for the Sharia Council

Sara Khan – Co-Founder and Director of the human rights charity Inspire

Yasmin Rehman – From the Centre for Secular Space and researcher into polygamy and the law.

Huda Jawad – Advisor at the Centre for Academic Shi’a Studies and Research Coordinator for Solace Women’s Aid.  

In the first half of the evening each speaker will be in a one to one conversation with Alom Shaha.

After an interval everyone will return as a panel and will take questions from the audience.

The event is free to attend and open to all but we will ask for donations on the door to cover our costs, we ask you to give what you personally can afford.

The evening is organised jointly by London Humanist groups in association with Conway Hall Ethical Society and the BHA as part of Interfaith Week.
