University of Alberta Muslim Students Association defends choice of controversial speakers
by Dan Barnes
The Muslim Students Association at the University of Alberta has been forced to defend its roster of speakers for Islam Awareness Week.
Three of the four men scheduled to speak on campus next week — Jamal Badawi, Abdullah Hakim Quick and Abdullah al-Andalusi — have been criticized by MacEwan University assistant professor Junaid Jahangir and others for allegedly making homophobic or pro-terrorist statements.
The students association said it conducted an investigation in the wake of the criticism.
