Islam & Atheism - Irreconcilable enemies? How can humanists & Muslims make it work?

Monday 13 November 19.30 – 21.30

Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Around 5% of the population (12% of Londoners) identifies as Muslim, while over 50% do not identify with any religion, including around 20-25% with a Humanist worldview.
Looking beyond the belief/unbelief divide, where are the fundamental differences, and the common ground? What can Muslims and atheists do to help make our plural society work better?
