After the successful launch of the ‘Don’t Hate, Debate!’ campaign in January 2015, and the huge support for its first two events on Free Speech and British Values, the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) will be holding its third cross panel event in Central London to debate another contentious topic relating to the Muslim community,
The Big Question: Is Islam The Cause Or Solution To Extremism?
The panel will include prominent journalists, academics and activists, whose opinions on the subject matter have shaped the current debate.
About the ‘Don’t Hate, Debate!’ campaign
The ‘Don’t Hate, Debate!’ campaign is aimed at raising the standard of intellectual discourse by highlighting the importance of tackling hatred in our society, and to encourage people to ‘debate our differences’ rather than ‘hate our differences’. It was launched in January 2015 in response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.
