Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Feminist and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali brought her controversial take on Islam to Melbourne. She spoke to Jennifer Byrne about her personal journey from Islam, how “multiculturalism is a form of racism” and how human rights and cultural belief clash.
Hirsi Ali looks at how “Liberal societies enable, enhance, ignore what is going on” and asks why Australia’s politicians are ignoring the debate about Muslims in favour of “cosmetic debates” about burqas and minarets.
