SYDNEY: Discussion circle - religion and violence 3

  • Studio 1 2-12 Foveaux Street Surry Hills, NSW, 2010 Australia (map)

MPV is an inclusive group, everyone is welcome: Muslims, non-Muslims, ex-Muslims - we don't discriminate or segregate. In this third session, we’ll build up on the previous discussions (can be found here and here) to explore the following intertwined topics: 

  • The Islamization of Radicalism: The controversial theory of Oliver Roy, a French social scientist, in which he thinks the real issue that has to be dealt with is radicalism, that gets islamized, rather than a version of islam that turns people into such violent radicals.
  • The brutality and nihilism of radicals today: Comparing and contrasting ISIL and the Mexican drug cartels.
