Why Charlie Hebdo was right to address the Brussels Attacks

08 April 2016

Tehmina Kazi, Fellow at the European Foundation for Democracy and director of the British Muslims for Secular Democracy, comments on the latest Charlie Hebdo article concerning the Brussels Attacks of March 22nd.

The article, entitled “How did we end up here?” received much criticism from well-known newspapers, well-respected scholars, writers and from the social platform all around. Kazi does not agree with the negative views the article has received and gives her own interpretation of Charlie Hebdo’s remarks, underlying that the only way to improve the advance of secularism is by maintaining an open dialogue about Islam and about the dilemma of “religion vs state”.
