MPAC Forum: Minority Rights in Muslim Countries

Dear Friends:

MPAC will be hosting an honest conversation on the rights and realities of religious minorities in Muslim majority countries-- and I hope you will join me.

After decades of dictatorship, post-revolution Muslim-majority countries are facing the challenges of what it means to be a democracy. While majority rule is a central component of democratic rule, respecting minority rights is just as significant. Otherwise, a well-intentioned majority will sucumb to the repressive tactics of dictatorships.

Rather than sit idly by, come join the conversation of what it means to live in an inclusive democracy. MPAC will be holding a forum to address the reality of what it means to be a religious minority in some Muslim-majority countries and what Islam has to say about the subject. While the Quran is clear that diversity is the will of God (11:118), there are forces who would argue otherwise. We will end with action steps of what audience members can to do influence the discourse on this important issue.

Our speakers will include:

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Laila Al-Marayati,  former presidential appointee to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.
