‘Among the Mosques: A Journey Across Muslim Britain’ – In conversation with Ed Husain

22nd June 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to play host to a conversation between Ed Husain and Dr Alan Mendoza on “Among the Mosques: A journey across Muslim Britain” – Ed Husain’s latest book.

Having travelled the length and breadth of the country and explored the full extent of the diversity of Britain’s Muslim population and its places of worship, Mr Husain is well-placed to offer observations on the health and state of British Islam and the views of its adherents – and what a future trajectory for both might look like.

As can be expected with a book of this nature, its content and conclusions are heart-warming in part and hard-hitting and shocking in others. Mr Husain enjoys a string of honest conversations with British Muslims across the country about the trials and tribulations of daily life, reflecting the reality of ordinary British people getting on with normal lives in normal ways.

But he also uncovers significant evidence of intolerance and ignorance – even hatred and hostility – and warns that left unchecked, this strain of thought poses a fundamental challenge not just to British values, but to the very fabric of social cohesion that has hitherto bound as together as a nation.

Can integration yet triumph, or are the conflicts between tradition and modernity and the differing values of East and West too great to resolve and bridge? To answer this question and many more, please join us at this special event.
