Event Details

Monthly Meetups are held on the third Tuesday of every month, 7.30-9.00pm UK time in central London. Meetups are run by Ali Malik. This month’s meet up on LGBT and Ex-Muslim with Sohail Ahmed is a reformed former radical Islamist who was at one point on the cusp of carrying out violence in his home city, London. Raised in an extreme and austere form of Islam, he was taught to hate non-Muslims and even other Muslims who happened to follow a different form of Islam. Eventually he began to question the beliefs he had been raised with and stopped believing in Islam altogether. He now considers himself to be a Cultural Muslim who rejects the truth claims of Islam whilst still retaining a connection with its culture and practices. He now works in the fields of counter-extremism, counter-terrorism, and social integration. He has featured in the media and has written for a number of publications exploring his personal journey, LGBT rights in the Muslim world, and Islamic extremism in particular.

Since space is limited due to Covid regulations, please RSVP with ali.malik@ex-muslim.org.uk.
