About The Event
Professor Mehtab Syed Karim, a distinguished Senior Fellow in the School of Public Policy at George Mason University in Virginia is our guest speaker this Thursday to discuss: "Growing Muslim population in Europe & North America: Issues and concerns".
Over the past 50 years the number of Muslims in Europe and North America has grown substantially, mainly due to immigration from South Asian, West Asian and North African countries. Besides, substantial number of indigenous Muslims have been living in some European countries as well as in the United states. Since the Iranian revolution in general and post 9/11 in particular, in many Western countries there is a growing concern about the demographic growth of Muslims, which will be discussed in the webinar along with some relevant issues.
