Department of inter-religious studies
st. xavier's college, mumbai
Honours Course: Understanding Islam
Islam is one of the most widely practiced religions across the globe. However, it is highly shrouded with biases and stereotypes, especially in the present when Islam is being clubbed with terrorism. With the homogenizing of Islam and Muslim identities as a monolithic set of values, culture and ethics, we tend to ignore the fact that Islam is a religion as diverse as any other.
The course will be conducted by Adv. Irfan Engineer (Director, CSSS) on the following days:
20-23 and 27-29 June, each day from 3 pm to 5 pm.
The course schedule also includes field exposure.
Registrations are open at the DIRS Office from 5 June to 8 June. The course fee is Rs. 800.
