Haroon Moghul, a prominent Muslim speaker, writer and scholar, will speak regarding Sharia Law in the context of the current debate over the compatibility of Islamic Law and practice with secular democracy. He asks hard-hitting questions and doesn’t pull any punches in addressing the assumptions people on all sides of the issue make about each other and Islam as a religion.
Join us for this provocative discussion regarding the debate over authoritative interpretation of Islamic Law in the current context of competing claims and concerns regarding extremism.
Moghul is a fellow at Columbia University’s Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, and Executive Director of The Maydan Institute. He has served as Director of Public Relations for the Islamic Center at NYU and is cited as one of 500 global Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow.
