A leader of an Islamist extremist group has stared down a former Muslim while telling him he deserves the death penalty for renouncing his faith.
Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar and Harris Sultan faced-off in a fiery debate at the University of New South Wales in Sydney last week.
Mr Sultan pressed Mr Badar on a statement he made in March last year saying Muslims who change their religion should be killed.
I don't get this. Why would anyone "press" this guy for his take on an Islamic law when his views are already on record? Did the religion of Islam somehow change in the last 18 months? Would the situation improve if this fanatic started lying and claiming that now he has nothing but love for ex-Muslims because Islam says so?
The core problem isn't Uthman Badar or Hizb ut-Tahrir or Islam. It's the political elite who've imported this evil into the West.
