Upperdate: The DDSB has cancelled the appearance by Hakim Quick! Good work everyone!
Update: I am happy to report that this is the fastest result we have ever achieved. According to Quick’s bio he is now into fighting homophobia, I somehow doubt his sincerity. Islam is immutable as Quick will tell you himself. Quick is on record as saying the fate of Gays is death under Islam and that he has no desire to reform his “religion”. Quick has good reason for possessing a lack of reformist zeal, any attempt at reform would result in his being branded an apostate. Apostasy is punishable by death under Islam.
@Blazingcatfur thank you. I promise you, we had no idea. He had been recommended highly. We will proceed quickly to remedy this.

The Durham District School Board is hosting Muslim Hate Preacher Abdullah Hakim Quick, he is a featured speaker during the board’s “celebration” of Islamic History Month.
Quick is on record calling Jews and Christians filth and stating that the fate of Gays is death under Islam.
Abdullah Hakim Quick is a featured speaker during Islamic History month at the Durham District School Board, he is scheduled to speak at the DDSB’s education centre board room on October 22th. See the flyer posted below for details.
The blog Harry’s Place has well documented the hatred spewed by Abdullah Hakim Quick. Following are excerpts from their expose entitled “Muslim extremist hosted by Kings College London”.
“In defiance of its own equal opportunities policy, King’s College London (KCL) is hosting the Muslim fundamentalist fanatic, Sheikh Abdullah Hakim Quick, this Thursday, 25 February, at 6pm in the Raked Lecture Theatre, The Strand, London.
“He is anti-Semitic and homophobic. He denounces the “filth” of Jews (Yahood) and kaffirs.” See here (about 3.50 minutes into the video)
In this audio tape Abdullah Hakim Quick goes on the public record with a declaration that the fate of Gays is death under Islam and that he has no desire to see a reform of the cult’s position on the matter. Link to recording.
In 2004 a New Zealand television broadcast featuring Hakim Quick was censured by the Broadcast Standards Authority after Quick went on an anti-Gay diatribe:
 Voice of Islam was broadcast on 29 September 2003 at 3.00pm on Triangle Television. During the programme, Brother Abdullah Hakim Quick addressed viewers about “Challenges Facing Muslims in the New Millennium”. Toward the conclusion of the lecture, Brother Quick expressed views about homosexuality. In summary, he said:
AIDS is caused by the “filthy practices” of homosexuals
Homosexuals are dropping dead from AIDS and “they want to take us all down with them”
The Islamic position on homosexuality is “death”
Homosexuals are “sick” and “not natural”
“Muslims are going to have to take a stand [against homosexuals] and it’s not enough to call names”.
The flyer published by the DDSB advertising Abdullah Hakim Quick’s appearance bills him as head of the History Dept. at the Al Maghrib Institute also known as Jihad U for their propensity to graduate terrorists.
Quick has an interesting take on our nation’s history. Did you know that Canada was settled by Muslims in their great “Wagon Train” migration across this great land?
Quick says it is so in the flyer. That’s what you call an Islamifact. It requires no basis in reality.
I suggest you contact Barry Bedford the DDSB’s Equity Officer – firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet the DDSB at @equity_ddsb and let them know what you think of the QUICKsand they’ve stepped in.
