Follow Me Akhi: The Online World of British Muslims

An evening at #AsiaLitFest exploring how a new generation of young Muslims are using the internet to determine their religious identity on their own terms.

Hussein Kesvani, a journalist, editor and producer delved into the many identities of British Muslims today.


Recounting the multi-faceted stories he uncovered during his research for his book, Kesvani entered the world of memes and influencers, Muslim dating apps, and alt-right Islampophobes to reveal how a new generation of young Muslims who have grown up with the internet are using social media to determine their religious identity on their own terms.
