A fascinating discussion on BBC's Asian Network radio station

Do listen to the whole interview where Nihal does a fair job of fairly interviewing Nick Lowles of the group Hope Not Hate, Robert Spencer and Iman Dudwallah (?)....

I found especially interesting the part from around 12 minutes in when Nihal asked Robert Spencer to give him some passages from the Koran and Hadith that he found objectionable and then asked the Imam to counter these claims. From around 17:20 listen to the Imam complain that the Qur'an was more Robert Spencer's field than his. I did enjoy Nihal responding incredulously "But you're an imam!" Also a joy to listen to are Cameron's questions and Robert Spencer's answers near the end of the piece.
