There was a conference taking place at The Waterlily in Mile End in London this weekend called Ramandan Month of Mercy, which has raised concern due to its speakers having previously promoted homophobia, sexism and racism (one of whom has been banned by the Home Office from entering the UK).
Please find a briefing to the conference attached, with background on each of the speakers which a lot of effort has been put into, and makes very uncomfortable reading.
I am surprised that this event is allowed to take place under both the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 and The Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006, and am concerned as to why the police and authorities are not at least investigating the conference.
We have started a petition to try and ensure that future events such as these are looked into by the authorities to stop the radicalisation of individuals and great offence to the minorities they are prejudice against: www.ipetitions.com/petition/against_extremist_conferences
We thought this may be of interest to mention in an article, as we'd like to spread awareness of such events and think your readers would be interested.
