The narrative strand of post 9/11 events in the popular media can sometimes appear threadbare, lacking substance and glossing over details – we’re simply exposed to the same, accepted version of events from the same points of view.
This event looks to provide new insights, with an expert panel uniquely positioned to tell us other parts of what is, in the end, an infinitely complex story. Colonel (retired) Azam Qadri served with the Pakistani Army before becoming a published author and respected historian. He is now working on a new book about the war on terror and offers a global context on the ongoing events from a Pakistani angle.
Joining him is community leader and activist Gohar Almass Khan MEE, who will talk about the often-overlooked story of Beeston, home of the 7/7 bombers, and how the community found solidarity and pulled together after the attacks in London. Meanwhile, Imran Hussain MP, Shadow Minister of State for International Development, will provide global political perspective. Moderated by Paul Rogers, this is sure to be an important, relevant discussion offering new depth and detail on a pressing global issue.
