On 6th and 7th February, MEND continued to work with the creative minds behind the Trojan Horse play when they came to Oldham, Manchester.
Both Dr Sadia Habib, a member of our Manchester Working Group, and Dr Shazad Amin, MEND’s CEO, both sat on the panel following the play to speak on the issues raised throughout the real like Trojan Horse case. They talked about the issues surrounding politicians and the education sector when it came to the Trojan Horse case and how this relates to the wider impact of Islamophobia in society.
This was a well-attended event, with a wide spectrum of different communities represented within the audience, which allowed for important conversations to be had around the portrayal of the Muslim community in the UK. It also highlighted how Islamophobia can impact the lives of individuals catastrophically, and why it’s so necessary to understand the extent of Islamophobia in order to address is effectively.
