In a time of rising extremism around the world, discover first-hand why former Islamist extremist Maajid Nawaz and political commentator Ali A Rizvi are on a quest for peace and tolerance. They make their first appearance in New Zealand, exclusive to Writers & Readers, in conversation with John Campbell.
Nawaz shares his experience as a young Islamist extremist in his memoir, Radical, which spurred him to found the world’s first anti-radicalisation organisation, Quilliam. Rizvi is the author of The Atheist Muslim: A Journey from Religion to Reason and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post.
Presented by the New Zealand Festival, 23 Feb-18 Mar 2018.
In association with ThinkInc and Loop.
