A few weeks ago Al Jazeera published a video in which Richard Dawkins and Mehdi Hasan had a discussion in Oxford, many things where discussed and this time it was Islam that was used in the arguement for/against the existence of Allah.
In our video we give a response to Dawkins on the existence of Allah, and also look at some of the comments made by Hasan, which seem to contradict Sunni beliefs.
Is religion a force for good or evil? Can religion and science go hand in hand?
Professor Richard Dawkins speaks with Al Jazeera in Oxford, UK to address the above questions and attempts to express his understanding of science and the Universe during a forty minute interview which also includes a Q&A session with the audience.
A report published by a UK university has found that since the 9/11 attacks on the US in 2001, arson, criminal damage, violence and intimidation against Muslims in Britain has increased dramatically.
In particular, the authors found that since Muslim communities in small towns are more polarised than in cities, they are more vulnerable to attack and this accounts for higher Islamophobia-related incidents.
The study, Islamophobia and Anti-Muslim Hate Crime: UK Case Studies, was published by the University of Exeter and is part of a ten- year academic research project undertaken by its European Muslim Research Centre.
