Excellent. Connects with so many current day issues facing Muslims in Britain,
This review is from: Islam in Victorian Britain: The Life and Times of Abdullah Quilliam (Paperback)
This is a throughly well researched book.
There is no doubt in my mind had William Quilliam been alive today he would undoubtedly have been labelled an Islamist or a dangerous radical. In fact in his time he was view as such. The government had files on him which are still hidden from public view!
Yet today this very man is celebrated, rightly so. A courageous, intelligent man who was not just an quintessential Englishman, but a man of the world and a friend of the poor and above all a devout Muslim.
A must read to make sense of todays crazy politically charged world. In a multicultural world, this should be essential reading in todays schools.
