A Islamic preacher who has referred to non-Muslims as “kuffar” and preached on how to kill homosexuals is due to deliver a set of nightly lectures at an Iranian government-backed organisation in London, Breitbart London can reveal.
Shaykh Hamza Sodagar – who gained notoriety earlier this year for his lecture on “one of five” ways to kill homosexuals – is due to speak at the Islamic Republic of Iran School in north-west London between October 4th – 12th.
According to a speaker biography, Mr. Sodagar regards himself as a “role model” for “young Muslims all around the world”. A recent video of the preacher features Mr. Sodagar stating:
“If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above”.
As noted in 2014, he has also claimed Europeans and Americans are controlled by a “Zionist web of media is trying to control the minds of the people”.
The event is being organised by a group called the Ahlulbayt Islamic Mission, which also hosted Mr. Sodagar in 2014. The Stand for Peace organisation notes that Ahlulbayt is a pro-Iranian regime group.
The group advertises “tours” of Iraq and Iran on its website, as well as organising “swimming for brothers” – swimming events catering solely for men and children – at a local pool in north London.
