Master of Global Affairs Fellowship Recipients

  • Muhammad Shahzad Hussain

    Master of Global Affairs ’23

    Muhammad Shahzad Hussain, a madrasa graduate, has research expertise in blasphemy law and sectarian violence in Pakistan. He and his collaborators’ work was published by Engage, a nonprofit organization, and is titled The Untold Truth of Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law

    For his MPhil degree research, Muhammad focused on an eleventh-century Muslim scholar’s views on takfīr (excommunication) and its modern application by ISIS and other extremist groups. Muhammad is a graduate of the Notre Dame-based Madrasa Discourses project. Before coming to the Keough School, he worked as a secondary school teacher for Idraak, an online institute he co-founded with the goal to reduce sectarianism through education. As a master of global affairs student, Muhammad is the recipient of an Ansari Institute Fellowship.
