Interfaith Week: Islam

During Interfaith Week, Year 10 welcomed the courageous and inspirational Muslim speaker Riyaz Timol into school. Born and brought up in Higher Walton, Riyaz found his faith when a friend from college was killed. Subsequently, Riyaz studied for a PhD in Islamic Studies in Cardiff, and is now Research Associate in British Muslim Studies at the Islam UK Centre and co-founder of Think Brite Services. Year 10 asked some thoughtful questions, and were able to develop a deeper understanding of faith and Islam.
