Atheist Richard Dawkins is banned from US radio station over ‘hurtful’ comments about Muslims, but he responds: ‘Why is it fine to criticize Christianity but not Islam?’

A row over free speech has broken out between scientist Richard Dawkins and a California radio station after a planned speech was cancelled.

The British biologist, a renowned atheist, had been due to speak at an event hosted by Berkeley-based station KPFA about his latest book.

But the speech was pulled, with organizers citing ‘hurtful’ statements made by Dawkins about Islam.
