Armin Navabi - Does Islam need to be reformed?
Zara Kay - Women in Islam.
Armin is an Iranian Canadian ex-Muslim atheist and secular activist, author and podcaster, currently living in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In 2011, he founded the online freethought community Atheist Republic, a Canada-based non-profit organisation which has hundreds of branches called "consulates" in several countries around the world. These enable non-believers to interact in societies where irreligion, apostasy and blasphemy are often criminalised and repressed. As an author, he debuted with the book Why There Is No God (2014). He co-hosts the podast show Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment, with Ali A. Rizvi.
On this evening, we will also have Zara Kay, a Tanzanian Ex-Muslim atheist activist and founder of Faithless Hijabi which aims to support and empower Ex-Muslim women across the globe. Zara was recently featured on the front page of The Australian talking about her journey and her work with Faithless Hijabi https://www.facebook.com/theaustralian/posts/10151209628849978
