Comment: Mehdi Hasan, Abortion and an Asymmetric Debate
The accused: Mehdi Hasan wrote a piece for the New Statesman framing abortion in the context of political ideology.
I genuinely like Mehdi Hasan. A lot of young, brown and Muslim young people look up to him as a supposedly progressive thinker who has contributed greatly to equalising and humanising how Muslims are represented in the British media. His piece here in the Huffington Post UK, of which he is the Political Director is a brilliant open letter to the extremely loud Muslim protesters who brought my faith into disrepute with their violent, heinous, paranoid and murderous reactions to the now infamous Sam Bacile film.
Am I disappointed by his strange articulation of his views on abortion? Yes. Does he have the right to voice them?
Pitch forks came out in their masses, calling out Mehdi, criticising those who disagreed with him - it was like an episode of Glee, when the cool kids and the social misfits square up to each other.

One great example came from the Huffington Post journalist Medhi Hasan, who tweeted "I'm so sorry for coffee, cheques, parachutes, chemistry, inoculations, soap, shampoo, cameras, etc #muslimapologies".
Ed Miliband, Rowan Williams and Mehdi Hasan welcome Ramadan and express support for Islamic Relief campaign -, 7 Oct 2013 [cached]
Ed Miliband, Dr Rowan Williams and Mehdi Hasan were the keynote speakers at an Islamic Relief dinner in central London to welcome the holy month of Ramadan and promote the new campaign.
Mehdi Hasan, Political Editor of the Huffington Post, praised Islamic Relief for helping both Muslims and non-Muslims - including victims of the Haitian earthquake, Hurricane Katrina and the Japanese tsunami. He was loudly applauded when he said: "As a British Muslim who has long been fed up of having my faith and my community demonised and distorted, I am proud to be here tonight supporting the selfless humanitarian work done by Islamic Relief, especially on the eve of this important month of Ramadan. We Muslims are often instructed to be ambassadors for our faith, and if that's the case then the men and women who work so hard at Islamic Relief UK and for Islamic Relief across the world are among the best ambassadors of our faith."
Ramadan is a time when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and give over £100 million to charity as they think about those less fortunate than themselves - including the hungry. Islamic Relief receives around a third of its annual income during Ramadan.
"Ramadan is not just about you and God and your plate," Mehdi Hasan explained. "It's about you and others.
