Pope Francis has said the world is at war, but it is not a war of religions.

Joining the panel is Terry Waite, former envoy to the Archbishop of Canterbury and one-time hostage in the Middle East.

An internet troll admitted in court this week to sending online death threats and anti-Semitic abuse to Liverpool MP Luciana Berger.

Her two friends, aged 15 when they left the UK, are still there along with - it is estimated - hundreds of other radicalised young Muslims. Should they be encouraged to come home and have a chance of rehabilitation? Should it be made easier for people to return from Syria?

Catholic Bishop Edward Daly died on the 8 July, aged 82. He will forever be remembered for an iconic image when he was photographed waving a white handkerchief as he escorted people carrying a dying teenager during what became known as Bloody Sunday when 13 people were dead shot by British soldiers during a civil rights protest in Londonderry in 1972. More than a thousand people attended Bishop Daly's funeral in Derry and he has been variously described as a 'walking saint' and 'the people's bishop'. But do religious leaders today have the same impact? Do modern religious leaders have any influence?

The £89 million price tag of Manchester United's new signing Paul Pogba has been deemed a watershed moment for football. Critics have branded the money exchanged as 'completely crazy', while others believe the player's arrival at United will be hugely positive for the club.

Does the burkini represent Muslim modesty or a menacing symbol? That's the question that's been raging in France over a ban on cover-all beachwear, which, according to local decrees, 'ostentatiously displays religious affiliation'. A picture of a woman being challenged by police officers on a beach in Nice has added fuel to the debate, and a court has suspended the ban in one town while it deliberates. We ask - is it right to ban the burkini?

Islamist militant Ahmad al-Faqi al-Mahdi has pleaded guilty at the International Criminal Court to destroying historic shrines in Timbuktu in Mali. It's the first time the court in the Hague - more often the setting for genocide cases - has tried a case of cultural destruction. It's also the first time a person has pleaded guilty. We ask - should destroying monuments be a war crime?

Naga Munchetty and guests discuss whether faith schools only admit believers, if sexism should be considered a hate crime and the legalisation of medical cannabis.

As part of an education overhaul, prime minister Theresa May has announced the removal of a 50% cap on faith schools admissions, which had kept at least half their places open to children, regardless of the religion or beliefs of their parents. Critics say by allowing the schools to prioritise certain religions they risk entrenching divisions and could promote segregation in an already divided country. Faith schools defend the decision by stating they remain fully committed to making Britain more diverse and tolerant. Will schools being free to select by faith damage Britain? Or is it now the time to abolish the cap?

Racism and homophobia are taken seriously as hate crimes, but sexism is often dismissed as 'banter' or harmless. Now Nottinghamshire Police has become the first force in the country to record harassment of women as a hate crime. The policy was officially launched in mid-July, and now could be taken up by other police forces including Devon, Cornwall, Lincolnshire and Durham. Could this set a precedent for other regions? What's the difference between an admiring glance, and an intimidating stare? And is it the kind of behavior that can be policed?

Taking cannabis for medical reasons should be made legal, says a group of politicians. The All Party Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy Reform wants the Home Office to reclassify herbal cannabis under existing drug laws, putting it in the same category as steroids and sedatives - meaning doctors could prescribe cannabis to patients, and chemists could dispense it. Patients might even be allowed to grow limited amounts of cannabis for their own consumption. At the moment anyone using the drug, even for medical reasons, could be charged for possession. The NHS warns that cannabis use carries a number of risks, including harm to mental health, fertility or unborn babies. The Government has also stated there are no plans to legalise cannabis. But is it time to change how we think about drugs, and move towards a more relaxed attitude like some of our European counterparts? Do the benefits of using cannabis to those suffering from ailments outweigh the risks?

Plus Tommy Sandhu meets Britain's favourite gardener Alan Titchmarsh. The pair reminisce about Ground Force being the Great British Bake Off of their day, and how after writing numerous gardening books, Alan now enjoys penning romantic novels. And X Factor star Jahméne Douglas performs his single 'I Wish' for World Peace Day.

Singer Lily Allen stirs up controversy after an emotional apology to an Afghan migrant at the so-called Jungle camp near Calais on behalf of 'the English' for putting him in danger. Her comments were welcomed by some, but she was also heavily criticised on social media for joining in the political debate. We ask - should we care what celebrities think about political issues?

A leading businesswoman says mothers who take long maternity breaks risk damaging their careers. Lady Barbara Judge, chair of the Institute of Directors, suggests mums should consider hiring a nanny instead. Parenting charity NCT responds that early bonding with a child is really important. Is maternity leave too long?

Would you take a Bible to a desert island? One is generally offered to castaways on the long-running BBC radio programme Desert Island Discs. But a survey by a Christian group reveals that two out of three people would not take the world's best-selling book. We discuss - is the Bible still relevant?

Also on the programme, Hardeep Singh Kohli meets the campaigning Sister Rita - known as 'Attila the Nun' - and Katie Melua and the Gori Women's Choir sing 'Dreams on Fire'.

Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition bombing campaign in Yemen, one of the Arab world's poorest countries. This has highlighted Britain's controversial arms trading with the Saudis, worth billions of pounds. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says Britain should stop the supply, but foreign secretary Boris Johnson responds that other countries would 'happily' take Britain's place but without applying the same level of monitoring. We debate - should the UK sell arms to Saudi Arabia?

The Christian owners of a bakery in Belfast lost an appeal against a ruling that their decision to refuse to make a cake bearing the slogan 'Support Gay Marriage' was discriminatory. Are they needlessly stirring things up, or do they have a point that businesses should not be forced to propagate messages that they disagree with? We discuss - should religious beliefs influence business?

There are at least six million CCTV cameras in Britain - but are they all for security purposes or are they used to snoop on people? The surveillance camera commissioner is planning a new strategy for England and Wales to make sure all the lenses are focused on responsible use. We discuss - do we need so many CCTV cameras?
