On Sunday 6th of April 2014, Quilliam’s Ghaffar Hussain and Usama Hasan spoke at Secular Hall in Leicester at an event entitled ‘Jihadism, Then and Now’ which was arranged by the Leicester Secular Society. Ghaffar traced the evolution of Jihadist thinking in recent decades and how it came to influence young minds in the UK. Usama spoke about his experiences of challenging conservative Muslim views and how he has dealt with some of the resistance he met. The talk was followed by a lively question and answer session.

Quilliam would like to thank Leicester Secular Society for organising the event.
