The 'Lioness of London's Battle against Militant Islam: 'What an Enormously Courageous Woman'

Michael Ashcraft : Jun 21, 2024

"When people hear the joy and freedom the Lord Jesus Christ gives, they want to run away from Allah, from Mohammad, and from Islam." -Hatun Tash

Still, Hatun Tash—called the "Lioness of London"—raises her 5'2" frame and throws herself undaunted like Charles Martel into the fray of debate against militant Islamists at Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park, London, Sunday after Sunday.

"She gets back on her feet again. She will not be distracted," says fellow Islamic polemicist Jay Smith. "If anything, it only strengthens her resolve."

Hatun Tash was born in Turkey, where she lived for 27 years. Her father was an imam. When she moved to England, she was perplexed when she heard that Jesus had died on the cross. Muslims know (from the Koran) that Jesus never died on the cross.

"I was shocked. I thought everybody knew Jesus didn't die," she says on Mohamad Faridi's YouTube channel. "I started looking into it. I found out Jesus died. I was wondering how did the Koran get it wrong?"

Hatun's only exposure to the church in Turkey was that it was a tourist destination like a museum, so she went to a church in England as a tourist. She was struck by the joy people showed; Islam, she says, is a religion of sorrow and grief, not joy. People were friendly and invited her back, so she kept attending for about a year.

"When people hear the joy and freedom the Lord Jesus Christ gives, they want to run away from Allah, from Mohammad, and from Islam," she says.

She researched Christianity. But it wasn't her readings about Jesus that converted her. It was her readings about Mohammad. Specifically, when she read Mohammad's biography (by Ibn Hisham), she kept saying to herself: "This can't be. This can't be. This can't be."

Among the troubling revelations were stories of bloodshed, pedophilia, polygamy, and wife-beating.

As soon as she accepted Christ, she began evangelizing Muslims. She didn't have much luck standing outside mosques. When she targeted Speaker's Corner, she got more engagement.

"I learned more about Islam from Speaker's Corner than I did from 27 years of being a Muslim in Turkey," she says.

She came across Dr. Jay Smith, a regular evangelizer of Muslims at Speaker's Corner, and studied under his tutelage. Jay had a PhD in Islamic polemics, one of the only (if not the only) in the world, and used historical, textual, and archaeological data to expose cracks in the foundations of Islam.

As Hatun learned more, she became more audacious. She began wearing a T-shirt expressing support for Charlie Hebdo, the satirical French magazine that published cartoons of Mohammad in support of free speech. In 2015, two Islamist gunmen stormed the Charlie Hebdo headquarters and killed 12 staff members in a rampage, shouting "Allahu akbar!"

Hatun has become a lightning rod for Muslim ire—and not just because she brings cartoons of Mohammad. She is also a woman leader, which Muslims generally don't allow. Hatun is a convert from Islam, which merits the death penalty in the Koran. And worst of all, her message has been devastatingly effective against Islam.

Four years ago, Hatun unearthed 37 variants of the Koran, undermining the essential doctrine of only one Koran perfectly preserved unchanged by allah throughout history. She brought the Korans to Speaker's Corner and challenged Muslims to do what Surah 5:101 prohibits, to think for themselves: "O believers! Do not ask about any matter which, if made clear to you, may disturb you."

Despite having this image and despite recovering the knife of Hatun's attacker, police have never found him.
She says she personally has converted about 1,000 Muslims and placed them in churches around London.

Overwhelming, unrelenting opposition would have sucked the resolve out of another person.

On Sept. 26, 2020, police dragged Hatun from Speaker's Corner "for her own safety" as she riled "Islamic thugs" by saying that since Mohammad wasn't prophesied in the Bible, he was a false prophet. She had drilled holes in the Koran to illustrate the "holes in the narrative."

The wounds were superficial. But out of shock, she momentarily fainted. Then she recovered, rose and preached at the Muslims present.

On July 25, 2021, an unknown attacker stabbed her, slashing her head above her eye and her arm before running off. The attack occurred right in front of police. She rose and continued to preach: "Muslims, cutting off people's arms is not going to help you," she said. "God doesn't need me." (Implied: allah can't avenge himself; he needs Muslims to do it for him.) Police never found the suspect, despite recovering the knife from the crime scene...
