Casper (Hasan) Labuschagne converted to Islam in 2013 and completed a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies at Stellenbosch University that same year. In 2017, he decided to further his Islamic studies, and enrolled in the Ālimiyah programme at Dār al-Ulūm al-Arabiyah al-Islāmiyah, Strand (DUAI). He completed this programme in 2022. He hopes to contribute to the reinvigoration of South African civil society and government with decision-making based on traditional values and compassion for human struggles. He is especially interested history, philosophy, interfaith dialogue, and geopolitics. Through participation in the ASRI FLP he hopes to equip himself with the skills required to be an effective leader and a role-model for the future generations of South Africans.
