A guest lecture at a London university was shut down when Muslim thugs backing Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and deposed president Mohamed Morsi forced the speaker off the stage.
London Evening Standard (h/t Susan K) Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsbury’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London.
They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawy’s ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi. The movement played a key role in the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi in June this year.
