“In a well-functioning democracy, the state constitution is considered more important than God’s holy book, whichever holy book that may be, and God matters only in your private life.”

Infidel. Heretic. Apostate. Ayaan Hirsi Ali has courted controversy over her years in the public eye, earning widespread criticism amongst the liberal left and death threats from the religious right.

As the polemic around Islam intensifies around the world, reformers and secularists have been struggling to be heard amidst the racism of the far-right, the inertia of the regressive left and death threats from hardline Islamists. Into this fray, Hirsi Ali asks where the tolerance ends if its result is an acceptance of human rights abuses, in particular Sharia’s treatment of women and sexual minorities, the proliferation of genital mutilation, honour killings, forced marriages and social isolation.

Think Inc. invite you to step inside the controversy with Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Hero of Heresy.

This event will consist of a 20-minute lecture by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, followed by a 40-minute conversation with a local host.

The Meet and Greet will take place after the main event within the same venue. Meet and Greet ticket holders will be asked to remain in their seats after the event to be directed to the Meet and Greet area. The Meet and Greet ends at 9:50pm.

Before purchasing, please review your ticket choice as all student tickets require a student ID. There will be merchandise sold at the event, including t-shirts and posters. If you have any questions about the event run time, or the event in general, please contact info@thinkinc.org.au.
