A female Christian preacher who was wearing a Charlie Hebdo shirt was allegedly stabbed in London’s Speakers’ Corner on Saturday afternoon.
The woman, who is claimed to be a Christian preacher and prominent critic of Islam, Hatum Tash, was filmed being stabbed repeatedly by a hooded man.
The evangelical preacher is a member of Defend Christ, Critique Islam (DCCI) Ministries which “seeks to preach the Gospel to Muslims using apologetics and polemics.”
According to their website, DCCI states that their “motivation is a love for Muslims to bring them to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ in order to attain eternal life.”
For her strident critiques of Islam, including showing textual differences between different Qurans, Tash has become a controversial figure, with some Muslim activists even calling for her to be banned from Speakers’ Corner.
Last year, London’s police removed her from the area, despite its identity as the home of free speech, after her Charlie Hebdo shirt provoked a mob of Muslim men.
