Attempts To Pretend That Sharia Law Does Not Exist

You can watch the debate, held at a London university, here. The Muslim denier are Ahmadis, which lends a certain piquancy to their lies because, as Ahmadis,they are nathema to real Muslims who call them "Qadianis" and do not allow them, in Musilm states (as Pakistan) to identify themselves officially as Muslims. Indeed, in Pakistan they are the subject of attacks, even murder, but this doesn't prevent them from attempting to mislead non-Muslims about the contents of Islam, and perhaps -- who knows? -- to mislead themselves. 

Note the largely Muslim audience, there not to listen in the sense of "to take in," but rather simply to hold firmly to their views, to remain resolutely uninterested in anything that might upset the balance of their made-up, brainwashed minds. I've seen such Muslim audiences before, and I suspect you have too. It's a frightening thing, that hopeless fanaticism.
