This time last week Islamic Scholar and Sheik Dr Haitatham al Haddad spoke at the Islamic Society charity dinner,which was raising money for the charity Palestinian solidarity charity Interpal.
We broke the news this time last week the original speaker Wasim Kempson pulled out, he is an Iman which just simply means a believer's faith in the metaphysical aspects of Islam. Speaker Dr Al Haddad was a last minute booking.
Last week Rupert Sutton of the Student Rights group came on the show to explain the Sheikh's history of homophobia, misogyny, religious intolerance and rhetorical support for violent groups.
Since the story broke, Westminster News Online and the Times have also covered the story.
On this Show we discussed what actually happened at the event, the response of the University, The Student Union and the Islamic Society. On air we're joined by Max Paradiso an MA journalism Student, Bridget Nkobo of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Trans society, and Rupert Sutton returns.
