“You might assume that my own anti-abortion views are a product of my Muslim beliefs. They aren’t.”
Here is Mehdi Hasan, in a begging letter to the editor of the Daily Mail:
“I’d like to write a piece for the Mail making the left-wing case against abortion, or a piece on why marriage should be a Labour value, and not just a Conservative one. My own unabashed social conservatism on such issues derives from my Islamic faith.”
Which is it?
