Muslim Group Banned from College for Segregating Men and Women

Here's a small flicker of light in the otherwise dark night of Political Correctness and Multiculturalism.  At last we see an individual and a college with the backbone to stand up for sexual equality in the face of Islamic harassment.  Not only did the college stand down a Muslim attempt to impose Sharia on non-Muslims at a lecture, they banned Muslim group iERA from using the college facilities in the future.

Three cheers for Lawrence Krauss and University College London.  May they inspire others to stand up for Western values in the face of the Islamic invasion.

A Muslim group has been banned from a university after segregating men and women during a debate.

Visitors to the event at University College London were told to use men’s or women’s entrances.

Organisers Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) told women to sit at the back, while men and couples were sent to the front. Three people who objected were ordered to leave.

The segregation was halted only when one speaker, US scientist Lawrence Krauss, stormed out.

Ignoring audience jeering, he told an organiser: ‘Either you quit the segregation or I’m not interested.’

He returned when staff allowed men and women to mix.

The public debate on Saturday was on the subject ‘Islam or Atheism: Which Makes More Sense?’

Atheist Mr Krauss was joined by another guest, Greek Islamic convert Hamza Andreas Tzortzis.

Audience member Dana Sondergaard wrote on her Facebook page: ‘After watching three people be kicked out of the auditorium?.?.?.?Dr Krauss bravely defended his beliefs of gender equality.’

iERA spokesman Saleem Chagtai insisted men and women ‘naturally’ separate in ‘normal Islamic events’. He said: ‘There were a number of ladies who used their free will and didn’t want to sit with the opposite sex.’
