Free speech at uni

A student union that banned a secularist speaker because she may offend Muslims has reversed its decision following public pressure at the end of September.

The Christian Institute

The atheist society at Warwick University had applied to Warwick Student Union (SU) for permission to host ex-Muslim and activist Maryam Namazie to speak about secularism at an event in October. But Warwick SU refused the application, saying that Namazie could ‘insult’ religion and ‘incite hatred’. She is now free to speak against Islamism, which she had experienced fleeing an Islamist regime.
