At armslength, under a miscroscope with Dr. Khadijah Elshayyal

Muslim in Plain Sight

Dec 20 2021 • 1 hr 18 mins

Dr. Khadijah Elshayyal, Associate Fellow at the Alwaleed Centre (University of Edinburgh) and specialist in contemporary British Muslim history, joins us this episode to trace the changing relationship of British Muslims and the state, before and after 9/11.

Khadijah relives her experience of the day of the 7/7 bombings in London and looks at its impact on counter-terrorism policy, and the initiation of the Prevent strategy. We finish with a discussion on the dark legacies of empire, what "identity politics" really means, and whether we can close the chasm of rights inequalities to claim citizenship - and humanity - on an equal footing, while retaining our Muslim identities.
