Hear about the future of religion in Britain, especially among minorities like Muslims, Ultra-Orthodox Jewish & Jehovah’s Witnesses. Aliyah Saleem, co-founder of Faith to Faithless (featured on the BBC, Times, Vice) will challenge the idea that religiosity is on the rise, with most people unaware of how many people are questioning their faith.
The internet is bringing people from even the most isolated communities together in a way never seen before. She will put forward a case for what needs to be done to make our society more welcoming, open and inclusive of people who are challenging religious norms.
Aliyah Saleem is an ex-Muslim feminist and has written for the Times as well as featuring in various documentaries and talks around the UK. She campaigns for better regulation of religious schools, legal or illegal and studied Islam for 6 years in 3 countries prior to leaving Islam.
