In times of heightened national security, scholars and activists from the communities under suspicion often attempt to alert the public to the more complex stories behind the headlines. But when they raise questions about the government, military and police policy, these individuals are routinely shut down and accused of being terrorist sympathisers or apologists for gang culture. In such environments, there is immense pressure to condemn what society at large fears. This collection explains how the expectation to condemn has emerged, tracking it against the normalisation of racism, and explores how writers manage to subvert expectations as part of their commitment to anti-racism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I Refuse to Condemn gives a direct window into multifarious ways that Muslim and minoritized voices are subjected to containment and constraint - but more importantly, how they think through such experiences and respond to them.'
Contemporary Studies of Islam

'The text's compilation is powerful; it sheds light on different approaches to exploring and uncovering systematic injustice and malpractice and encourages the reader not necessarily to agree but to understand and to challenge preconceived ideas and thinking.'
The Muslim World Book Review (42:2, 2022)
