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.

Khadija Khan is a Pakistani journalist and a commentator currently based in the UK. She writes about human rights, mainly women’s rights, as well as minorities, extremism, and Islamism. She is an advocate for women’s rights, strongly believes that religion infringes women’s rights and
Islam is no exception. She denounces the idea of Islamic feminism, since finding refuge for women’s rights under organised religion is not more
than a myth. Being a humanist, she believes in tolerance and equality for all human beings. She criticizes the usage of blasphemy laws as a
tool to crack down on dissent and supports freedom of and from religion. She stresses the need for having freedom of speech to counter extremist
ideologies in her write-ups. She believes that freedom to challenge bad ideas is the most effective way to counter extremist narratives.

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