Goldsmiths Islamic society head quits in wake of anti-gay tweet claims
by Ramzy Alwakeel
The president of Goldsmiths University's Islamic Society has resigned in the wake of allegations that a series of homophobic messages was posted on his Twitter account.
Muhammed Patel's resignation reportedly came after "a meeting was called to discuss a motion of no confidence" in light of "recent allegations", according to a statement on the society's Facebook page.
The post did not detail the allegations but it is understood a series of tweets posted from the @mopey96 account – now deleted – had sparked the motion.
