A guest speaker against ‘Islamophobia’ is coming to Wisbech at the Interfaith Forum’s next event.
Maz Salem will join the Wisbech Interfaith Forum on Wednesday June 13 at the Oasis Centre as part of a series of keynote speeches held over the past few years.
A spokesman for the Interfaith Forum said: “In April 2013, Maz’s father was brutally murdered in Small Heath, Birmingham while walking home from evening prayers at the mosque - because he was a Muslim.
“Since then Maz has been actively campaigning against Islamophobia, war and racism and is setting up an educational website, Education for Peace, in memory of her father.
“She asks ‘What hope is there for generations to come if we don’t make a stand against all forms of hate?
You may also want to watch:
“And what hope is there, here and now, that we will overcome the pernicious evil of Islamophobia, if we don’t name the very problem which we need to confront?’”
Maz will talk to guests about her experience with ‘Islamophobia’.
The talk begins at 7pm. For more information visit www.wisbechinterfaith.btck.co.uk
