UK: Hizb ut-Tahrir receiving subsidies for schools

A militant Islamic group was given more than £113,000 of taxpayers money to run a nursery and two primary schools.

Members of Hizb ut-Tahrir used the cash to teach children as young as five about their beliefs.

The group - which Tony Blair promised to ban after the 7/7 attacks on London - were given £113,411 to provide the three educational centres in Tottenham and Slough.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international Sunni political party whose goal is to combine all Muslim countries in a unitary Islamic state or caliphate, ruled by Islamic law and with a caliph head of state elected by Muslims.


The three schools are run by the Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation, a registered charity. At least three of the four trustees are Hizb ut-Tahrir members or activists.

A Department for Children, Schools and Families spokesman said local authorities were responsible for ensuring 'providers were appropriate'.
