IS IT WORTH TALKING ABOUT?

Recent events in the world have sparked a renewed interest—and debate—about Islam and Muslims. What has been described as “Islamophobia”—a fear of Islam and Muslims—marks a certain segment of the climate and discourse in the world today. This approach is hurtful because it reduces an entire people of faith to stereotypes and images.

There is so much that Singaporean Muslims can do to learn more about, and to get to know on how to contribute to a toned-down discourse, one that promotes tolerance and acceptance, and one gets beyond oversimplications.

Teh Tarik with Aftab Malik and Ustaz Zahid Zin strive to examines the impact of Islamophobia on the wider public and offers historical context as well as modern day best practices to meet this challenge.

Profile of Speakers:

1) AFTAB MALIK
Senior Advisor, Forum for Promoting Peace (UAE)
Permanent United Nations Global Expert on Muslim Affairs (UNAOC)

He has been called a “first rate scholar” by Professor John Esposito, “a rising intellectual star” by The Muslim World Book Review, an “expert on British Islam” by World Defense Review columnist Abigail Esman, and “someone at the cutting edge of research on Islam and at the heart of a group of young, emerging Muslim scholars, as well as established Muslim scholars,” by Professor Philip Lewis at the Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, UK. Mr. Malik's advice in understanding the theological strain underpinning current manifestations of Muslim extremism and the challenges and opportunities confronting Muslims in the West and Britain have been sought by various media outlets such as the BBC, Panorama, National Geographic, ITN and most recently by the Alliance of Civilizations. Mr. Malik was identified as a ‘Muslim leader of tomorrow' in 2006 and joined 100 other young Muslim leaders selected from 16 countries who participated in the Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow (MLT) conference in Copenhagen in July 2006, where a whole raft of challenges facing Muslims in the West were debated. He was also one of 15 Muslims selected from across Europe by the C-100 group (Council of 100 Leaders: West-Islamic Dialogue) at the World Economic Forum to discuss the State of Islam-West Dialogue.
