From Pink News
A society at the University of Manchester has been shut down after a student secretly filmed an extremist Muslim saying gay people should be killed – with a complaint then received by police.
The comments were secretly recorded by Middle East studies student Colin Cortbus at a public meeting organised by the Global Aspirations of Women student group at the University of Manchester’s Students’ Union earlier this month.
When Mr Cortbus asked the chairperson of the meeting – whether “in the Islamic society in which you strive for,” would they “feel comfortable, personally and morally, to kill a gay man?”
The chairwoman of the meeting replied: “Absolutely.”
Mr Cortbus also asked whether in the Islamic state they were advocating – would they feel confident to kill him if he “did something as completely innocent as kiss another man outside the Students’ Union.”
The chairwoman replied: “Yeah, absolutely,”
Following a complaint to Greater Manchester Police, the Global Aspirations group has now been closed by the Student Union Executive.

Mr Cortbus deserves a medal: for guts, for smarts, and for - I hazard the guess - keeping his eyes and ears open when doing 'Middle Eastern Studies' and refusing to be bamboozled. And for going along to that meeting, and asking his questions,.
More Mr Cortbus's are needed, all over the western world.

I went and read the article in situ at Pink News: and then I read the very lively discussion in the Comments (about 79 comments so far).
Interesting. I'd say a majority of those posting have begun to figure out just exactly what Islam is all about - and not just vis a vis gay people - and they don't like it.
The gremlin is out of the sack, and more and more people are seeing the teeth and the claws, and no amount of 'spin' produced by the Islamophile dhimmis and the Mohammedan da'wa spinmasters is going to fool people into thinking that they haven't seen what they know they just saw.
