The Reality of this Dunyah

The Students Rights blog draws attention to a recent event hosted by the London South Bank University Islamic Society on 6 January, The Reality of this Dunyah.  They highlight the presence of Murtaza Khan:

He has been criticised for his extreme views in the past and was recorded in 2007 by Channel 4 asking “for how long do we have to see our mothers, sisters and daughters having to uncover themselves before these filthy non-Muslim doctors?

He has also stated that “we have become Jews in our clothing, Jews in our eating, Jews in everything that we do, and the other half is Christian in everything we do. Muslims are following one of these accursed nations. And people are still not waking up to understand the fact that these people are enemies towards us”.

Khan has also asserted that women who use perfume are adulteresses, and that homosexuals deserve death.

Another invited speaker is Abu Mussab Wajdi Akkari. He has cast scorn on freedom of speech and democracy.

Students Rights asserts that Khan’s views ‘[don’t represent] those of the majority of the UK’s Muslim population. These intolerant ideas fuel tensions between Britain’s diverse communities and should have no place on an unchallenged platform, yet this event does not appear to be one which will attempt a balanced debate.’
