Islamophobia Talk at British Muslim Heritage Centre
This event is organised by Mend – Muslim Engagement and Development – a group formed to tackle the growing spectre of British Islamophobia, something that’s reared its ugly head once again in the past few months. The talk, entitled ‘Five pillars of Islamophobia’ features two guest speakers: Professor David Miller from the University of Bath and Sufyan Gulam Ismail, an entrepreneur and Mend executive. It’ll include a Q&A with both speakers and represents a great opportunity to get up close and personal with one the great issues of our time. It’s free entry, but online registration is required.
Mon 14 Sep, British Muslim Heritage Centre, College Road, Whalley Range, M16 8BP, 6pm – 9pm, www.mend.org.uk
