|Mile End’s Queen Mary Collage has been strongly highlighted in a You Gov survey examining Muslim student extremism.
Researchers found a “ghettoised mentality” according to James Brandon, deputy director of the Centre for Social Cohesion, who commissioned the study.
Radical views were ‘wide spread’ amongst students at the collage, part of the University of London and a member of the Russell group of elite higher education institutions – according to the poll.
Segregation between Muslim men and women were found to be more visible, Brandon said talking to the Sunday Times.
32% of Muslim men said they had ‘little or no respect for gays.’ Last December Qeen Mary students were encouraged to condemn gays as: “Allah hates” homosexuality, by a speaker known as Abu Mujahid.
Israel was described as the most “inhumane project in the modern history of humanity” by Hamas supporter, Azzam Tamimi, in another speech there last November.
A spokesman for Queen Mary said they were unaware of the contents of speeches and called the speech ‘integral.’
Student groups have slammed the findings. The UK’s largest Muslim group, Fosis criticised the report and the president of the National Union of Students called the questions ‘vague and misleading’.
1,400 Muslim and non Muslim’s were polled in 20 Universities.
