Having written more than 50 publications on Islam and Muslim issues, Halim Rane is passionate about increasing tolerance and understanding of Muslim ideology.

Mr Rane led a schools discussion on Saudi Arabia as part of Griffith University’s Integrity 20.

He spoke to the high school students gathered about the importance of widening their understanding of Islam beyond the typical western framework, of terrorism and conflict.

He told our reporter Faith Stolz,  that Islam as a talking point only really began with the broader public after 9/11,  through what was deemed as newsworthy stories such as crime, violence, and oppression, rather than the religion itself.

Mr Rane is calling for people to open their minds to a broader understanding of Islam’s true ideology without extremism.
