Blasphemy and Islam

by Sajid Hameed, Research Fellow, Al-Mawrid Global

Blasphemy is a long-standing issue of debate across cultures. However, in 2005, when a Danish newspaper published cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, the topic became a major global controversy. What does Islam say about blasphemy? What is Islam’s stand on freedom of expression? Sajid Hameed’s lecture will focus on issues of freedom of expression and blashpemy with specific respect to Islam.
