A leader of an Islamist extremist group has stared down a former Muslim while telling him he deserves the death penalty for renouncing his faith.
Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar and Harris Sultan faced-off in a fiery debate at the University of New South Wales in Sydney last week.
Mr Sultan pressed Mr Badar on a statement he made in March last year saying Muslims who change their religion should be killed.
'I want to know what would happen to me. I'm an apostate,' Mr Sultan said.
'What would happen to me if it's not a secular country... it's an Islamic state.'
Mr Badar said it would depend on individual circumstances, noting Mr Sultan knew 'what it [the Islamic position] is'.
