It's Good to Talk
The first session is on Saturday the 20th August 2005 at the Alhambra Studios, Bradford. The panellists for this session are:
Maroof Shafi - Director of the Marmaduke Pikthall Academy and member of the Islamic Society of Britain.
Sher Azam - Spokesperson for the Bradford Council for Mosques.
Fatima Ayyub - Active local Muslim sister and mother of three children.
Dr. Rafaqut Rashid - A local GP, student of a traditional madrassa and author.
Nur al Ramadani - A local Muslim sister who is 18 years old and has just finished her A-Levels.
The theme for this session is ‘Coping with the aftermath of 7/7’.
It is often said that man is a rational animal, and, we believe that we will benefit from an opportunity to express our views as well as hearing the arguments of others.
I sincerely hope that this interesting idea serves as an impetus for a desperately required intra-community discussion. As opposing panellists learn the art of agreeing to disagree, perhaps this will serve as a unity inducing exercise.
