In the latest episode Ben speaks to Hussein Kesvani about the impact of the internet on British Muslim society.
What does it mean to be Muslim in Britain today? If the media is anything to go by, it has something to do with mosques, community leaders, whether you wear a veil, and your views on religious extremists. But as all our lives become increasingly entwined with our online presence, British Islam has evolved into a multidimensional cultural identity that goes well beyond the confines of the mosque.
Ben discusses this transition with author and journalist Hussein Kesvani, whose latest book Follow Me, Akhi reveals how a new generation of young Muslims who have grown up with the internet are using social media to determine their religious identity on their own terms.
