Islamic Thugs Â Derail Interfaith EventÂ at Queen Mary College
A talk on sharia and human rights by NSS Council Member Anne Marie Waters’ at Queen Mary College, London was cancelled at the last moment because of an Islamist who made serious threats against everyone there.
The talk was due to take place on 16 January but before it started, a man entered the lecture theatre, stood at the front with a camera and filmed the audience. He then said that he knew who everyone was, where they lived and if he heard anything negative about the Prophet, he would track them down.
The man also filmed students in the foyer and threatened to murder them and their families. On leaving the building, he joined a large group of men, apparently there to support him. Students were told by security to stay in the lecture theatre for their own safety.
Jennifer Hardy, President of Queen Mary Atheism Society, who organised the event said: “This event was supposed to be an opportunity for people of different religions and perspectives to debate, at a university that is supposed to be a beacon of free speech and debate.
“Only two complaints had been made to the Union prior to the event, and the majority of the Muslim students at the event were incredibly supportive of it going ahead. These threats were an aggressive assault on freedom of speech and the fact that they led to the cancellation of our talk was severely disappointing for all of the religious and non-religious students in the room who wanted to engage in debate.”
The police were contacted about the incident.

Now this is what I call “making a clear statement”. You’ve got to hand it to the adventurous jihadists for the boldness of their direct actions. The psychological impact will be profound. The pure insanity is that most of those who were present at this conference will probably keep on asking themselves if more interfaith dialogue couldn’t have harmoniously resolve the issue. I wonder if this isn’t what a typical sheep thinks when it faces a pack of wolves.
Here’s a vid from the attack on Lars Hedegard in a Swedish university, which could be fended off by skilled security personnel.
Just goes to show that here, like everywhere else, Â Muslims will not tolerate any critique of Islam and resort to criminal aggression and violence.
