Oh the irony!

Here’s a debate I did today on BBC World Service with the Hizb-Ut-Tahrir rep on segregation of the sexes at UK universities. The irony of “debating” with an Islamist group that wants apostates and gays killed and supports stoning but uses rights language and cries of discrimination to impose sex apartheid at UK universities… At least the media has begun calling them Islamists rather than “Muslim organisations”!

Listen here.

    Can it ever be voluntary segregation if the segregation is an integral concept of Islamic belief? I am sure there are many voluntary aspects to Islam that no-one chooses due to group dynamics and mob mentality putting fear of punishment into every mind.

    Yikes, the Hizb-Ut-Tahrir woman is horrible.

    Great job, Maryam!

    Did you notice the host at the end said the Fitnah was an organisation “…for Women’s segregation”? Only 360 degrees wrong!

      Sorry, that should read “180 degrees wrong!” I never was much good at geometry.

          Probably even better; very, very wrong!

      I know I even corrected her but not sure anyone heard it?
