Last Monday in an interview for BBC Panorama’s documentary ‘Sex Education: The LGBT debate in schools’, Sara Khan, the government-appointed Lead Commissioner for Countering Extremism, attacked the parents in Birmingham who have been protesting LGBT indoctrination in primary schools in England, saying they are guilty of ‘extremism’.
