8 Mar 2011 – We are alarmed at reports that death threats have been made against Usama Hasan. Regardless of any opinions on Islamic issues he may have expressed, it is completely unacceptable that threats should have been made against him. The proper manner to resolve disagreement on theological issues is through dignified discourse in a civilised, Islamic manner. We urge all involved to consider matters peacefully, and that those who have issued threats should retract them.
