On 11 June 2015, I delivered a talk at Mukha Cafe, based on the topic Seeking Islam: Why I’m Still in Yemen. www.peacemeal.my/stillinyemen
This photo album is dedicated to document and expand what was said thatevening, as well as for those who didn’t manage to attend. Each post will be based on each slide I used that evening.
For context, at present time, parts of Yemen is undergoing political conflict which turned violent beginning a few months ago. The explanation as to why I’m still in Tareem, Hadhramout (south of Yemen), is not just in response to the occurrence of the conflict.
Even before it started, people were asking why I have gone there, repeatedly and finally decided to live there for some years beginning 2015. I hope what you find here will assist you in understanding why, and perhaps consider not turning yourself away from one of the blessed places in the world, Tareem.
