IAFUNSW | DEBATE: SHARIA OR SECULAR LAW: WHICH IS FAIRER?
18 September, 2015
UNSW (The University of New South Wales)
Islamic Awareness Forum of UNSW
Secular Law vs Sharia Law
Oh? You thought this matter was settled? Think again. In a world that cries for rights, justice and complete 4G coverage, but still can't seem to strike that balance, we haven't all yet agreed upon what the best way is to organise society. Should it change with the times? Can we, the masses, really be trusted to know what society's best interest are? Is there only one answer?
As part of our IAW FINALE, Abdullah al Andalusi and Michael Boyd will present their cases for the Shari`a and Secular Government respectively in a REVOLUTIONARY new debate/cross examination/verbal surgery/rhetorical fumigation format that is guaranteed to bring us the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me, God!
Michael Boyd is the president of the Australian Atheist Foundation, a position he has held since 2013, and is a lawyer by profession.
Abdullah Al Andalusi is an international Islamic speaker, thinker and activist. He cofounded the Muslim Debate Initiative which serves as a forum for open dialogue and critical debate.
WHEN: FRIDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 6:30PM
WHERE: Ainsworth G03, University of New South Wales.
Refreshments will be served.
This event has been organised as part of the Confident Muslim Campaign.
