Ex-Muslim De-platformed in Calgary to Speak in Ottawa

By: Humanist Association of Ottawa
OTTAWA, Ontario - Sept. 10, 2019 - PRLog -- Armin Navabi, an Iranian-born ex-Muslim author and secular activist, was due to speak at Mount Royal University in Calgary in March of this year. Hours before the talk, Navabi was informed that his talk would be cancelled due to concerns by staff and students.

The author of "Why There Is No God," founder of the Atheist Republic non-profit organization - the world's largest atheist network, and co-host of a podcast called "Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment", Navabi is now based in Vancouver but speaks to groups around the globe.

The Ottawa event on September 22 at 2:00 pm is entitled "Enlightenment Under Attack: Defending Secular Values against Religious and Political Extremism." Navabi will discuss the threat that religious and political extremism pose to enlightenment values such as freedom of speech, scientific inquiry, and the separation of church and state, and what can be done to fight back. Navabi states, "My goal is not to convert people, but to show them that people can disagree and still get along."

The Humanist Association of Ottawa and Atheist Republic Ottawa Consulate are organizing the talk at Sala San Marco, 215 Preston Street. Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non-members on eventbrite.com, http://tiny.cc/navabi, or at the door.
