Maryam Namazie’s Talk: Apostasy, Blasphemy and Free Expression in the Age of ISIS


Maryam 1

Maryam Namazie is an ex-Muslim, secularist  and human rights activist. Following pressure from secularist groups and the media she was eventually allowed to give her talk at Warwick University after originally being prevented from doing so by the Students Union.

“Below is my speech “Apostasy, Blasphemy and Free Expression in the Age of ISIS,” which I gave at Warwick University on 28 October 2015. I had been initially barred by the Student Union but the talk went ahead after protestsI gave a similar speech a week earlier at Trinity College Dublin, after my talk had been cancelled by a student group earlier this year after I refused last-minute restrictions on my talk.
