UConn to host speaker who once called for ‘jihad’ against U.S. ‘fascists’
Prominent social activist Linda Sarsour, who has previously come under fire for controversial comments regarding opposition to the Trump administration, is set to speak at the University of Connecticut as an invited guest of the school’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
The event, scheduled for March 7, is also hosted in part by the school’s Women’s, Gender and Sexualities Studies department and its Human Rights Institute.
The event listing describes Sarsour as a “racial justice and civil rights activist” who “has received numerous awards and honors including “Champion of Change” by the White House, YWCA USA’s Women of Distinction Award for Advocacy and Civic Engagement, and the Hala Maksoud Leadership Award from the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.”
The description also lists Sarsour as “one of the four co-organizers of the January 21, 2017, Women’s March on Washington.”
Sarsour, who has generated controversy in recent months over several controversial comments she made regarding women, Islam and Sharia Law, and Israel, last year called for a “jihad” against “the fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.”
Quoting Muhammed, whom Muslims believe to be a prophet of God, Sarsour said that “a word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader” is “the best form of jihad.”
“I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad,” she said at the time.
