For her TEDx talk, Dr. Hayat will be discussing religious tolerance, including primary education about another religion, and using this respect and understanding to reveal truths about ourselves and his or her religious beliefs. She also believes that in tolerance comes the discovery of commonalities between races, ages, religions and backgrounds. She emphasizes that although she will talk about religious tolerance specifically, her message applies to all people, religious or not, and is a universal theme.
