Balancing the Conversation: A Series of Talks on COVID-19

Please Share on Your Social Media

What is happening in our society today? There is an overwhelming level of censorship surrounding the COVID-19 vaccinations. Any opinion suggesting alternative treatments or approaches to the COVID-19 crisis is being censored on important news and social media outlets. Dr. Mazen Atassi and Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali discuss this censorship in the first talk of the ‘Balancing the Conversation’ series. The ‘Balancing the Conversation’ series are talks designed to help Muslims seek alternatives and solutions to the problems raised by the COVID-19 crises. We will have more information on these discussions coming soon.
