ISLAMIC RADICALS are infiltrating the heart of British political power, according to a Muslim leader.
The Telegraph (22 February) reports that Fiyaz Mughai, head of Tell Mama, a national organisation monitoring anti-Muslim attacks, has resigned from a ‘cross-Government working group on anti-Muslim hatred’ set up by Baroness Warsi, herself a Muslim and a former Cabinet minister. The newspaper claimed that Baroness Warsi had handed official posts to people linked to Islamist groups.
Members of the working group are also using their position to encourage Whitehall to work with Islamist and extremist-linked groups, according to The Telegraph, “including one described by the Prime Minister as a ‘political front for the Muslim Brotherhood’.”
Mr Mughai said: “I was deeply concerned about the kinds of groups some of the members had connections with, and some of the groups they were recommending be brought into government.”
