Playlists: Ismaili Potpourri: The Best of YouTube
The entire collection features well-recognized scholars such as Aziz Esmail, Ali Asani, Daryoush M. Poor, Hussein Rashid, Shafique Virani, Karim H Karim, Eboo Patel, Reza Shah-Kazemi, etc., and documentaries from TheIsmaili, Harvard University, and other official media outlets.
Sahil Badruddin is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with majors in Chemical Engineering, Religious Studies (focus in Islamic & Ismaili Studies), and History (concentration in History of Religions & History of Science). He often organizes speaking events for intellectuals; some past events include Mohamed Keshavjee at the University of Texas at Austin, Shafique Virani at Yale University, and Reza Aslan at the University of Madison-Wisconsin.
Sahil’s RoundUp Series assembles the most interesting and credible religion-related video content in various themes for a general audience. Despite its wide availability, he noticed there was a lack of good and accessible (centralized) content in the field of Religious Studies so, as a hobby, he decided to compile the absolute best material. Sahil strives to offer an objective yet deep understanding of religion given the sea of negativity and misunderstanding.
