On the 21st of October, Quilliam’s head of Outreach and Training, Ghaffar Hussain, spoke at Keele University. The event, organised by ‘World Affairs’ was attended by around 200 people. Ghaffar spoke about the intellectual decline of traditional Muslim thought and the subsequent rise of Islamism in the 20th century. The talk was followed by a lenghty and lively Q and A session.
