Sharia scholar insists on coming to Netherlands
Controversial Islam scholar Haitham al-Haddad has told Radio Netherlands Worldwide that he will come to the Netherlands on Friday even though his invitation to a symposium has been withdrawn.
Amsterdam's VU University cancelled an academic debate between the London-based Sharia Council member and a critical opponent following protests by a majority of Lower House MPs. According to the university, the uproar about Mr al-Haddad's views has undermined the conditions for a debate.
