Modern Thinking Imam Shockingly Threatened With Death

Interestingly, because of this Imam’s beliefs, he’s actually outside the mainstream of Islam, because those who follow the word of Mohammed are actually the “extremists”

An imam of an east London mosque has been subject to death threats and intimidation for expressing his views on evolution and women’s right to refuse the veil.

Dr Usama Hasan, vice-chairman at Leyton mosque and a senior lecturer in engineering at Middlesex University, ceased delivering Friday prayers after 25 years of service when 50 Muslim protesters disrupted his lecture by handing out leaflets against him and shouting in the mosque for his execution.

A statement from the secretary of the mosque, Mohammad Sethi, that was leaked to extremist websites, said Hasan had been suspended after his lecture resulted in “considerable antagonism” from the community and for his “belief that Muslim women are allowed to uncover their hair in public”.

Sethi’s letter, dated 24 February, said Hasan’s views were in “violation of the constitution of the Masjid Trust” and that the decision had been made for the “safety and security of all parties”.

If only there were more Muslims like him who would break with the antiquated and violent belief system the Koran teaches.

  1. Encouraging that this man is standing up for what he knows in his soul is right. Problem is, he will have to denounce the Koran. Then the death threats will double and one will probably be successful.

  2. Exactly right. As long as most somewhat follow the archaic and original version, they will always be dangerous.

  3. The only encouraging part is the Murder Monkey Cult From Hell was only able to turn out 50 at this location.
