She said the experience was a humbling one, given that she still does not know who nominated her.
Ms Siddiqui, who set up the Centre for the Study of Islam at the university, said: “In this fractured culture that we live in, this honour bears witness to the importance of inter-religious work.”
Sure. These interfaith events have been a tremendously helpful tool for the Muslims in maintaining the public pretence that their "faith" is something other than it is.
She admitted to feeling “chuffed”, adding: “Someone took the time to write a letter and put me forward for an honour. That is something I find very humbling.”
Ms Siddiqui is chairwoman of the BBC’s Scottish Religious Advisory Committee and has advised on a number of legal prosecutions.
That's very interesting, that she advised on a number of legal prosecutions. I would love to know more. Perhaps she advised on the prosecution in which a man got 2 years for pulling a Muslim's veil off. No doubt she'll be able to give more sterling advice to Wee Eck once he's passed his online religious hatred law next week.
