Man interrupts BBC reporter’s interview about Islamophobia – with Islamophobic comment

The man had been listening to interviewee Ruqaiya Haris talk about her experiences of ‘hate messages’ on Twitter.
This is the shocking moment a man interrupts an interview with a Muslim woman about Islamophobia – by shouting out an Islamophobic comment.
Catrin Nye was interviewing 23-year-old student Ruqaiya Haris about her experiences on social media for The Victoria Derbyshire Show when the man decided to jump in with the remark.
Ruqaiya tells the camera that she doesn’t think that her condemning attacks, for example in Nice, will change public opinion of Muslims.
She then goes on to say that she has received tweets that tell her Muslims have “had enough time here” and are “not integrated enough”, and even more shockingly, “are threatening our way of life.”
It is at this point that a man, called Paul, then calls out: “There’s no Sharia law here.”
Refusing to ignore the comment, interviewee Ruqaiya Haris replies: “If you’ve got something to say, you can say it.
“Do you want to talk about Sharia law? You want to talk about Sharia law to me? We can talk about Sharia law. You obviously said it for a reason.”
Paul then replies: “But I wasn’t talking to you.
We’re losing our right to freedom of expression. We are.
“We’re being told to be politically correct when we don’t want to be politically correct.”
