Philip Dodd and guests with a topical debate exploring the ideas and issues behind the headlines.

Playlist

A year on from the London bombings, Night Waves gathers a group of young British Muslims round the table to discuss the impact the bombings have had on them over the last twelve months, how things have begun to change, and what needs to happen now.

Philip Dodd will be joined by a range of young Muslims including Navid Akhtar, journalist and presenter of Channel 4's documentary Young, Muslim and Angry, and Munira Mirza, who grew up in a culturally Muslim household, but who has long been a humanist.

Together they'll be exploring the changes in thinking that are required of Muslims and non-Muslims in the face of the alienation that has become ever more apparent since last summer. Are such approaches as the recent roadshow of moderate scholars working, or do more fundamental questions need to be asked about the desire of young people for certainty in an age of doubt? How far can traditional family norms help - or hinder - the process of crossing the divide between Muslims and their fellow Britons? And does liberal individualism need to be as ready to compromise as it expects British Islam to be?
