Muslims try to ban Franklin Graham from speaking reports: “Muslims in Britain are urging their government to ban evangelist Franklin Graham from entering the United Kingdom, contending the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham has made ‘Islamophobic and homophobic statements.’

Graham, the CEO of the humanitarian group Samaritan’s Purse and also the Billy Graham Association, is scheduled to speak at a Christian festival this month in the Northern England city of Blackpool.

But the Muslim Council of Britain, joined by three Parliament members, wants the British Home Office to revoke his visa on the grounds of ‘hate speech,’ reports the Guardian newspaper of London.

‘In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are ‘not conducive to the public good,” the Muslim organization said in a statement. ‘Mr Graham’s remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities.’
