Anger as preacher who supports FGM speaks at SOAS campus debate
by Anna Davis and Colin Cortbus
A London university has sparked a row by allowing a preacher who has spoken in support of female genital mutilation to give a talk on campus.
Haitham al-Haddad spoke at the School of Oriental and African studies on why lending money with interest is forbidden in Islam.
Dr al-Haddad, who gained a PhD at SOAS, has described homosexuality as a "criminal act" and said there is a "proper" way of performing FGM.
