Zak is a Muslim man who won't shake a woman's hand. Shelagh is an LBC presenter who wants to challenge that view

Shelagh Fogarty was talking about the Swiss school that had granted Muslim boys an exemption from shaking a female teacher's hand - a decision that's since been overruled by authorities.

She took a call from Zak, a Muslim who explained why he would "respectfully" never shake hands with a woman.

So Shelagh challenged that view, explaining how she'd shaken hands with thousands of men in her life with "no threat, no danger".

"Does it make you uncomfortable that if I met you, I would put my hand out to shake your hand?"
