Host: Hudson Institute. This lecture is part of the Center for Religious Freedom’s fall series on "Lifting the Theocratic Iron Curtain: Examining the Application of Muslim Blasphemy and Apostasy Rules in the Contemporary World." Our speaker, Bishop Nazir-Ali, is a member of the House of Lords and noted for his theological acumen. He has also earned a reputation for being "the most courageous man in Britain" due to his analysis of the threat of extremist Islam in Britain, especially the growth of extreme forms of Sharia law. There have been many threats on his life, especially over the past year after he warned that Islamic extremists had created "no-go areas" across Britain where non-Muslims faced intimidation. On September 1, he resigned from his Bishopric to devote himself full-time to defending endangered and beleaguered Christian minorities.
