Liberal Conspiracy have all the details.
This bit in particular caught my attention:
The controversy first erupted in March last year when 50 men burst into Leyton Mosque to disrupt a lecture by Dr Usama Hasan, handing out leaflets condemning him and calling for his execution.
Dr Hasan had angered ultra-conservatives for saying evolution was compatible with Islam….
Goodness me, evolution not compatible with an Abrahamic faith; thank goodness Christianity’s not afflicted with such anti-science beliefs…..
UPDATE: Richard Bartholomew has a detailed blog post which is worth reading.
