Western Cape Premier

12 May 2008

Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool was on campus on 28 April to address a fortnightly seminar hosted by the Department of Religious Studies on the topic of Islam, African Publics and Religious Values.

"The Premier has played a significant role in national politics since the early 1980s," said the department's Professor Abdulkader Tayob, who invited Rasool to the event. "More specifically, he has articulated his politics through a reading of religion (Islam) and social conscience."

In his talk, Rasool reflected on the interface between politics and religions in the Western Cape.
