RADICAL ISLAM ON UK CAMPUSES
Since the revelation that the Christmas Day Bomber, Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab, was radicalised at University College London, the Centre has decided to follow up our 2008 report with a resource demonstrating the astonishing carelessness and indifference still shown by University bodies towards the threat of radical Islam. This report provides the first comprehensive list of extremist speakers who have addressed audiences on British campuses since the Centre last wrote about vi Radical I slam on UK campuses this issue. The speakers have often appeared despite the full prior knowledge of university authorities of the presence of such speakers and, provided by us, full knowledge of such speakers’ views. In the days and months following the attempted terror attack on Christmas Day, the Centre has been at the forefront of the debate on what role Universities should play in ensuring that British students do not fall victim to the ideology of violent Islamism. Islamic extremism on campuses not only continues unabated, it continues – as this report demonstrates – to flourish.
