"Muslims need to engage critically with Islam and with non-Muslims. Muslim Institute was established to serve this purpose. It is a precious institution, providing space for critical thinking through its meetings and conferences, its brilliant website and its world leading journal, 'Critical Muslim'. I am proud to be involved with the Muslim Institute."
