Following last year’s hugely popular online event, we’re delighted to welcome Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad to Bradford to continue the discussion of his latest book Travelling Home: Essays on Islam in Europe.

Dissecting the rise of Islamophobia on the basis of Muslim theological tradition, Murad describes how everywhere, the far right is on the march, with nationalist and populist parties thriving on the back of popular anxieties about Islam and the Muslim presence.

In this discussion he’ll examine the question: how should we react to the new Islamophobic movements now spreading in the West?

To book for this event you’ll be taken through to the Bradford Theatres website. Please note that the £2 booking fee will be deducted at the point at sale.
