Apostasy: What we know and what next?
Aliyah Saleem will offer insight into the experiences faced by apostates in the UK and abroad with some focus on apostasy from Islam. Apostates can face a range of abuses, social ostracism and in some parts of the world, legal consequences for abandoning or changing their faith. This talk will give an overview of what we know so far about the challenges that apostates are facing as well as providing some ideas on solutions to create greater understanding, harmony and cohesion between social communities that are affected by apostasy.
