THE UNIVERSITY of Kent has been slammed by students after an Islamic extremist preacher, who has expressed homophobic and anti-Semitic views, was banned from giving a talk on the Canterbury campus.
Haitham al-Haddad, who has referred to homosexuality as a “scourge” and said “a man should not be questioned why he hit his wife”, was invited by the Kent Islamic Society to give a talk on Sharia law on March 4.
But it appears a decision at the 11th hour by the University of Kent banned the Imam, who presides over a Sharia Court, from speaking at the campus, under their code of practice. The Times has contacted the university for comment.
Does sharia law allow a man to beat his wife?
