Maajid Nawaz – Saving a Revolution

Maajid Nawaz is Co-Founder and Chairman of Quilliam – a globally active organisation focusing on matters of Integration, Citizenship & Identity, Religious Freedom, Extremism and Immigration – and Founder of Khudi, a Pakistan based social movement campaigning to entrench democratic culture among the nation’s youth. Maajid encourages inclusive citizenship-based participation of Muslims in the West, while seeking to synergize a respect for human rights with the civic liberal imperative to defend those in danger of being stigmatized by extremists of all stripes due to their personal choices.

He has become a prominent counter-extremism consultant and a regular writer, debater and public commentator. In this regard, he has been called upon by heads of state, statesmen and international bodies for his professional opinion. Maajid has spoken from various platforms internationally, ranging from universities across Pakistan to addressing the US Senate in Washington DC. He has been profiled by CBS 60 minutes, Larry King Live, BBC Newsnight, has spoken at the TED conference, and is regularly interviewed by prominent journalists across the world. His work is published by The London Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, India Times, Dawn Pakistan, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Guardian, and The New Statesman among many others.
