British Islam colleges ‘link to terrorism’

“Two British universities have given their approval to a pair of Islamic colleges with close links to fundamentalist scholars and political movements…. Tim Collins, the Shadow Education Secretary, said he was extremely concerned about the colleges. ‘There needs to be an urgent investigation by the Charity Commission, the Department of Education and the Home Office into the exact nature of these institutions, how they came to be sited in the UK and whe-ther their presence threatens peaceful community relations in this country,’ he said. ”
