‘Shame on you’: Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali hits back at women accusing her of being a ‘white supremacist and a misogynist’ – calling them ‘terror group apologists who hate free speech’

Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali has hit back at Australian Muslim women for accusing her of being a white supremacist and a misogynist, describing them as apologists for terrorist groups.

Six Muslim women, including four wearing hijabs, feature in a video describing the Somali-born writer and former refugee as someone who marginalises followers of Islam.

The three-minute clip, posted on Facebook by a group called Persons of Interest, describes Ms Ali, a black woman who campaigns against female genital mutilation, as a racist and sexist person.

‘This is the language of patriarchy and misogyny. This is the language of white supremacy. This is the language used to justify war and genocide,’ the women say.
