On the 20th of November 2009, Ghaffar Hussain engaged in an interactive workshop with a class of Journalism students at City University in central London. The session focused on the work of Quilliam and a discussion about the role of the media in Muslim/Islam issues ensued. This was followed by a lively Q and A session in which students questioned Ghaffar on a range of issues in relation to the work of Quilliam as an organisation and the role of the print media in community cohesion.
