Hanifa Deen: Infidels and True Believers: A Humorous Journey Through the Ages

Session Info:

As a child growing up in the days when Muslim communities in Australia were small and scattered, I was puzzled at the social studies lesson taught us in primary class. My heroes were everyone else’s villains! I would return home full of questions about what I was hearing which my father patiently reinterpreted with only a little grinding of the teeth. These were the years, and these were the stories that shaped me as I was growing up. These are the themes that I still think and write about today.

Topics:

  • Back to the Crusades
  • In the eyes of the beholder
  • Stories my father told me
  • Stories my father never told me!
  • Revisionist history
  • Clash of Civilisations ‘hokum’
