Brigham Young University (BYU) is the largest religious university in the USA and is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its J Reuben Clark Law School contains the International Center for Law and Religion Studies which annually hosts an International Law and Religion Symposium.
From 29 September to 6 October in Provo, Utah and then in Washington DC, I attended the 24th symposium which had the theme "Religion and Religious Freedom in a Changing World." While in Provo, on 3 October I was interviewed for 16 minutes on BYU Radio for the show “Top of Mind with Julie Rose.”

I have copied below the segment description from the BYU radio website.
Guest: Mohammed Amin, Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum
Mohammed Amin has been named one of the hundred most influential Muslims in the UK.
Since the 9-11 terror attacks, he’s made it his mission to explain his faith to others. But he’s especially interested in speaking to young Muslims – helping them see the possibilities for their lives. And he does it by telling them the story of his own life.
The son of poor immigrants from Pakistan, Amin grew up in the slums of Manchester to become a partner at the prestigious accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The interview was conducted live with no prior notice of the questions.
For the benefit of website readers, I have written down the questions that Julie Rose asks me during the interview. This is a paraphrase, since transcribing a conversation exactly does not work well.
The interview mentions the two pages on my website which are linked below.
A brief introduction to Islam for non-Muslims
Muslim parents have primary responsibility for preventing their children being radicalised
