the big questions

Dr Usama Hasan joined a panel of distinguished religious and public figures on BBC1’s ‘The Big Questions’ with Nicky Campbell, discussing the questions ‘Is Islamism the biggest threat to the modern world?’ and ‘Does Pope John Paul II deserve sainthood?’.

In answer to the former question, Dr Hasan gives the view that while Islamism is a threat, it must be tackled with a measured response without hysterical over-exaggeration of the threat in relation to other threats facing the modern world.
