(0:10:43 Professor Ahmed:) “I’m very inspired by Lord Sacks’s previous book on Tikkun Olam, that is healing of fractured world – we have to go out and heal this world – talk to people in Bradford, to people in the communities, in Europe, in Asia and in the United States, and build bridges … and I would simply request Lord Sacks to understand his iconic position on the world stage in terms of this dialogue of civilisations as a counter to the clash of civilisation. We need to see much more of him on our television sets, on the radio sets, and out there in synagogues mosques and churches.”
