MEMRI TV Clip: Canadian Imam Calling for the Stoning to Death of Gays

YouTube removed this clip on March 4, 2019 and MEMRI appealed the decision the same day, explaining: “As part of MEMRI’s Reform Project, we expose hate speech, including anti-LGBTQ sentiment (such as this video of Pakistani-born Canadian imam Zafar Bangash), and we support reformists who speak out against such hate speech.” YouTube denied the appeal on March 5, thus upholding its protection of hate speech and calls for violence against the LGBTQ community. (MEMRI research and translation efforts on exposing hate speech in the Arab and Muslim world have provided crucial resources to educate policymakers, media organizations, the public, and others.)
