Maryam Namazie, an atheist and outspoken critic of extremist Islam, was scheduled to speak at the end of October at Warwick University (England) on behalf of the Warwick Atheists, Secularists and Humanists’ Society. She was going to talk about “apostasy, blasphemy and nudity in the age of ISIS.”
But the school’s students’ union declined the request (essentially denying the atheist group the resources it needed to bring Namazie there) because:
… after researching both her and her organisation, a number of flags have been raised. We have a duty of care to conduct a risk assessment for each speaker who wishes to come to campus.
There a number of articles written both by the speaker and by others about the speaker that indicate that she is highly inflammatory, and could incite hatred on campus.
