- Labour leader spoke at anti-Islamophobia event at Finsbury Park mosque
- Men were sat in middle while women sat in outer rows at the 2012 event
- Sexes were also segregated at meeting ahead of the Oldham by-election
- Same gender split also occurred at Labour rally in Birmingham in May
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was caught up in a new segregation row today after it emerged he campaigned at an event where Muslim women were split up from men.
Mr Corbyn was speaking at the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, once linked with hate preacher Abu Hamza and the 7/7 bombers, where attendees sat according to their gender.
At the 2012 Coalition Against Islamophobia event in his constituency, the left-winger was photographed speaking to a hall where predominantly Asian men and women were segregated.
Controversial: This photo shows Jeremy Corbyn speaking at Finsbury Park Mosque at an event where Muslim women and men sat in segregated rows
Campaign: The Labour leader was speaking at an anti-Islamophobia event where women can clearly be seen sat together
Men sat in the centre row while women sat in the two outer rows.
It is the latest in a series of scandals where Labour MPs have supported events where the sexes were split up.
Yesterday photographs emerged of a Labour Friends of Bangladesh rally in Oldham ahead of Thursday's by-election, where people also sat grouped by their gender.
And in May there was a separation of men and women at a Labour rally in Birmingham attended by deputy leader Tom Watson.
Mr Corbyn has promised a 'new kind of politics' since taking over as leader in September - but was also attacked for appointing no women to the most senior posts in the shadow cabinet.
In a different form of segregation the Labour leader also called for women-only train carriages could be introduced at night to guard against sex attacks.
Mr Corbyn has regularly visited the Finsbury Park Mosque, because it is in his north London constituency.
He last visited in the summer and called it a 'wonderful place' that 'guides me and many others'.
It was shut down in 2003 because of its links to extremists including Abu Hamza but reopened two years later and has won community cohesion awards.
It came 24 hours after his party was rocked by a segregation scandal in Oldham.
Only young women were visible on one side of the audience listening to speakers including Oldham West and Royton candidate Jim McMahon.
Across the aisle, only men could be seen, apart from two white women.
After a Labour MP tweeted the pictures, Ukip – which is fighting to overturn the late Michael Meacher’s 15,000-vote majority in Thursday’s by-election – accused its opponents of hypocrisy in claiming to be the party of equality while supporting segregation.
Row: Asian men and women clearly sat apart at a Labour-run event in Oldham over the weekend - apart from two white women who sat among the men at the pre-by-election rally
Previous: A meeting held in Birmingham in May also showed Asian men and women sat separately
Anger: Many people have taken to Twitter to slam the clear segregation of the sexes at the Oldham event
