HATE SPEECH

WATCH: Muslim Student At UK University Filmed Saying She’d Kill Gay Men

A secret camera at a meeting of Manchester University’s Global Aspirations of Women Society caught one member declaring she had no problem executing homosexuals in the name of Islam.

In the clip (above), a member of the society is asked whether, “in the Islamic society in which you strive for,” she would “feel comfortable, personally and morally, to kill a gay man.”

The woman responds, “Absolutely,” and described homosexuality as an “atrocity.”

The unnamed student was also asked if she would feel comfortable killing a man if he “[kissed] another man outside the Students’ Union.”  Her reply: “Yeah, abso­lutely. But… you can’t just see it as it is: People have this issue that the punishment—the penal code, everything—is so completely inhumane. But who even says that these things are inhumane?”

Excerpts from the video were printed soon in the student newspaper, the Mancunion, but school officials angered some by condemning the clandestine recording more than the message of hate and murder it contained. “We are deeply concerned with the covert filming of a student event within the Union,” said the school’s well-being officer, Cat Gray in a statement. “We are also deeply concerned by the suggestion that comments of a homophobic nature have been made.”

The society released a statement aimed at the person responsible for the video:

…Having approached the society and asked whether we would be willing to do an interview which we approved of, you still slyly chose to record the workshop we were holding without our permission or the permission of anyone else that was present.

Secondly, you failed to put our discussion into perspective for the aims of global aspirations of women’s society endeavours to discuss the plight of women here at home and globally and looks to political alternatives to end oppression, subjugation and the dishonour of women and hence includes Islam as in the debate along with secular/ liberal systems as an alternative.

When we look at the discontent in which people are living in this society as well as the widespread chaos all we seek to do is to simply raise discussions as to the nature of these problems and how Islam as an ideology (in its true form and not what is currently available in the Muslim world as they defiantly [sic] do not represent Islam and its tenants) as an alternative.

Yeah, we’re not really buying it. There’s really no context that would make saying “I would kill gay people” acceptable. But that’s not on Islam, that’s on the society—which has disbanded since the clip surfaced.

According to HuffPo, the Greater Manchester Police are investigating the incident.

      Hate must be thoroughly “exposed” anywhere it occurs and anytime it happens.

      Let others learn what hate sounds like.

      I don’t know if it was just me but I could only make out about 1 of every 3 words she was saying. Too bad, I was morbidly curious what someone who thinks executing men for being gay thought of as “barbaric” (as if she and her beliefs were somehow above barbarism when obviously they’re not) as I’m just a sucker for irony. I’d also be curious what she thought of honor killings (hey, she may support those, too).

      @queerty1958: the book she believes in supposedly actually says the opposite of what she believes and condemns absolutely what she says. as for honor killings, all muslim countries have made them ‘illegal. it is against islam absolutely. iran executes those who commit it. one man threw acid and blinded a girl, and the islamic court required him to blinded by acid. and he was. honor killings occur in christian countries and hindu countries. eastern orthodox christians in iran irag pakistan india commit honor killings throughout most of islamic history gay men were not executed for being gay. and most muslim societies like turkey bosnia kosovo muslim states in russia the caucuses bangladesh india singapore indonesia china central asia south asia southeast asia jordan syria north africa gay people aren’t executed but christian african states like uganda and the cardinal in africa who wants to be the next pope do preach teach death to gay people. he wrote an article defending death laws in uganda for gay people.

      @isafakir: Mao, Stalin, et al, committed the atrocities that they did because of their Communist religion. Any good done by Jimmy Carter, Tutu, and MLK was in spite of their religion. If they were actually following their religion then they would support slavery, genocide, and the execution of gay people. It’s a good thing quite a few so-called Christians do now ignore their religion, but quite unfortunate that gay people (and others) have had to suffer persecution for the last 2000 years before things started to change.

We must “act” upon our voting rights, our use of the judicial system, and our ability to EDUCATE those with low information thresholds.

      She needs too think herself blessed she is living in the uk when in other parts of the world being a Muslim woman and studying would not be aloud. Remember the poor girl who is having her face rebuilt and girls killed for going to school. Why did he not bother to ask here if this was the correct form of Islam her argument would have fallen flat on its face. On top of that is she not meant to be covered from head to toe with a tiny mesh to see the world.

But I have to point out I do feel sorry for her in a way because she’s probably just jealous because she’s too ugly for any man to fancy her, and she doesn’t know whether she might enjoy homosexual contact!
