LONDON, England – Muslim protesters at a London university caused a scene during a recent talk by human rights activist and former Muslim Maryam Namazie, and briefly shut down her presentation.

Namazie was delivering a speech on blasphemy and apostasy at Goldsmiths University Monday evening when members of the school’s Islamic Society disrupted the event by heckling, shouting, and flopping themselves on the floor, according to the Evening Standard.

The recorded event was put on by the Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society at Goldsmiths University, which received an ominous warning from the Islamic Society the day prior. The president of the Islamic Society wrote the night before “we feel extremely uncomfortable by the fact that you have invited Maryam Namazie.

“As you very well probably know, she is renowned for being Islamophobic, and very controversial,” the note read, according to the National Secular Society. “We advise you to reconsider your event tomorrow.”

The Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society disregarded the threat, and the Islamic Society apparently followed through.
