Hanifa Deen is fed up with writing about Muslims, reading about Muslims, defending Muslims and obsessing about Muslims in general but is having trouble getting off the ‘Muslim merry-go-round’. She recognises that Australian Muslims suffer from a massive PR problem and that an anti-Muslim ‘virus’ is spreading throughout the land in plague proportions. Can the disease be halted in time? Are anti–Islamophobic injections the answer? Is it too late to hire a marketing expert to turn this trend around?
Hanifa Deen is an award winning author. Her book Ali Abdul v. the King will be published in 2011.
We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.
With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.
If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the Performance Space from 12.20pm.
