Threats of violence force student group to cancel event
Last week a talk organised by the Queen Mary Atheism, Secularism and Humanism Society on ‘Sharia Law and Human Rights’ had to be cancelled after threats of violence.
A report from the Independent states:
Students attending a debate about sharia law were told they would be “hunted down and killed” by a man who burst into their lecture theatre and filmed them on his phone.
The BHA reports that police were contacted about the incident and the Society is waiting to hear how their investigation will proceed.
