The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have lasting social and political impacts in Muslim communities around the globe. At this event, A.Kadir Yildirim, a fellow for the Middle East at the Baker Institute, and Zahra Jamal, associate director of Rice University's Boniuk Institute for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance, explored the effects of the pandemic on religiosity and religious practice in the Muslim world, drawing from the results of a recent study led by Yildirim. The discussion also explored key findings from a public opinion survey conducted in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan and Indonesia. Kelsey Norman, Middle East fellow and director of the Women's Rights, Human Rights, and Refugees Program at the Baker Institute, delivered welcome remarks.
