As David Batty of The Guardian reports, University College London (UCL) has banned an islamic group from campus following a row after the group had hosted a debate with seating segregated by gender.

The incident clearly shows one of the fundamental clashes between western democracy and ambition towards gender equity versus gender segregation tendencies endorsed by some islamist groups. And so the question necessarily arises: what is more important, rules imposed by religion or treating men and women as equal humans?
