Event – November 13 | Institute of Ismaili Studies: Live Webcast – Dr. Amyn B. Sajoo: Pandora’s Sectarian Box: Myth and Reality

iis_logoSFUDr. Amyn Sajoo, Scholar-in-Residence at the Centre for Study of Muslim Societies & Cultures at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, will present on what plagues Muslim societies today.

From Afghanistan and Pakistan to Bahrain, Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon, violent conflict over sectarian identities — primarily but not exclusively between Shi‘a and Sunni — today plagues Muslim societies.

… This lecture will open ‘Pandora’s Box’ in its interrogation of the conflictual landscape — and the prospects for pluralist governance and identities.
