Islam is ‘backward, tribal and from a medieval period’

Robert Kilroy-Silk set himself on a collision course with sections of the Muslim community today when he claimed that most religious doctrine practised in the UK’s mosques was “backward, tribal and from a medieval period”. The controversial MEP and former talk-show host made the remarks in an interview with the BBC in which he called for legislation to allow Muslim women into UK mosques.
