Umair Afzal – What it means to be a Muslim

Added: March 2nd, 2016

In this powerful and thought-provoking talk, Umair explores how stereotypes impact how we perceive society, and how we can combat stereotypical bias together. He challenges everyone to look beyond the standard expectations of Islam and asks us all to fight negative perceptions of Islam in the media, and modern life. The speaker encourages us to embrace our cultural differences and to promote diversity in our everyday lives.

This talk was originally part of an extended homework project, and was inspired by the outburst of support on social media in relation to the November 2015 Paris attacks.
