University of Kent ‘extremist’ Muslim preacher talk in Canterbury is axed

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?

    See the same mullah in the following videos…is he a ‘moderate’?

    Video – the speaker concludes Sharia is ‘moderate’ not ‘extremist’

    Is a small
    minority of ‘extremists’ or a MAJORITY in favor of jihad?…a jihadist
    demonstrates the majority of Sunni Muslims
    quietly supports jihad…he rejects applying the word ‘extreme’ to Sharia or jihadism

    • That’s a Toronto boy beside him! Said Rageah! Just as crazy too.

    Fuck all this. Ban the hijab everywhere. I once knew a muzz restaurateur who thought he had authority over his wife (as to what she could watch on TV). Never the same again.

    I believe they should have let him speak so everyone could see what an asshole he is.

      Probably not in this day and age, although there was a time when I would have agreed with you absolutely.
      The vast majority of wankers that attend uni these days are utterly bereft of critical thinking skills, and cannot determine what they are digesting is pure evil.

    Why is ANYONE giving “Sharia Law” any more respect than “Jungle Head hunter Law” or “Mexican Drug Lord Law?”
    Is it because God gave his final revelation to Arabs??? Oh that’s a good one!

      I used that same argument in a conversation about multiculturalism.
      Someone was trying to argue with me after I said all cultures are not equal and that we happen to have the best one.
      He said there are beautiful things in all cultures.
      I got a laugh when I said shrunken heads are beautiful works of art, aren’t they?
      I didn’t have to say much after that.
