Currently there is a intense public debate about the need for Islamic reformation amongst politicians, academics, activists and the public at large because of apparent contradictions between Islamic beliefs, values, laws, Democracy, Liberalism, Human Rights and modernity in general.
A cross panel of experts will discuss meaning of reform, scope and implications of Islamic reformation addressing pertinent questions such as:
1) Does Islam need reformation?
2) What is the scope and implication of Islamic reformation?
3) Can Islam address modern challenges without reformation?
