Muslim Brotherhood/Hizb-ut-Tahrir on UK campuses

This is a cross post from  Student Rights

Following the recent LSE embarrassment over their Libya links, the management of the London School of Economics will be further irked by the fact that a member of their teaching staff is not only an active member of Islamist sect Hizb-ut-Tahrir, but that he is appearing alongside characters from the Muslim Brotherhood.


Speaking at a debate hosted by the ‘Global Ideas Society‘, who have previously encouraged the debate on Shariah vs. Secularism, was entitled, “What is the way forward for the Arab World?”

The event took place in Fyvie Hall on the Regent Street Campus at Westminster University on Thursday, 10th February.  The panel consisted of;

  • Dr. Kemal Helbawy – Senior Member of the Muslim Brotherhood
  • Reza Pankhurst – LSE assistant/Hizb-ut-Tahrir UK member
  • Dr. Patrick Seale – Author and Journalist
Given that the National Union of Students has a no-platform policy for Hizb-ut-Tahrir on campuses, it begs the question of the University of Westminster, why do they let these events take place?
