The House of Islam: The Future of Islam and Global Islamic Fundamentalism in Asia and Beyond

Ed Husain's is one of the world's foremost scholars on Islam and the many problems of radical and fundamentalist Islamism. In this new book, The House of Islam, Husain argues that the gulf between Islam and the world's rich, industrialised economies are widening, and especially so in the west — driven by the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and most recently in Syria. In the book Husain asks how Muslims can confront the issues that are destroying Islam from within, and what advanced industrialised countries in the West and in Asia can do to help work towards that end? Husain is also the author The Islamist, an award-winning memoir of his own five year period as a young Islamic radical, and how he eventually left behind that movement's extremism and violence. In this event, we will discuss the changing currents and political of global Islam, and also its changing dimension across Asia, and in South East Asia in particular.
