UCL debate criticised for segregating seating by gender

A professor speaking at the event organised by an Islamic group refused to participate unless segregation was abandoned

The debate, "Islam or Atheism: Which Makes More Sense?" featured Professor Lawrence Krauss, an eminent atheist, and Hamza Andreas Tzortzis, a lecturer on Islam.
