Multifaith Chaplaincy, 1 Woodland Road BS8 1AU

Islam represents a vast tradition that is rooted in mercy and beauty, themselves the outcome of understanding of the Divine.   And yet, today, Islam is increasingly seen to be synonymous with brutality and ugliness. Why has this happened and what can we do to stem this? 

Join Ed Davis, University of Bristol chaplain, in conversation with  guest speaker Aftab Malik as we take an  introspective look at the current state of the Muslim mindset. The presentation will be followed by Q& A with our guest speaker.

Aftab A. Malik is a permanent United Nations Alliance of Civilizations “global expert” on Islam. Professor John L. Esposito, one of the world’s pre-eminent scholars on the Muslim World, has called him “a first rate scholar,” and the academic journal, The Muslim World Book Review, has called him “a rising intellectual star.”
