Shiraz Maher on Panorama

Last Monday's Panorama, presented by Shiraz Maher, was an excellent piece of investigative reporting and essential viewing for anyone who wants an insight into the murky world of Islamism.

Shiraz has now 'come-out' and now wants to expose Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) for the organisation it is. HT Britain is trying to market itself as a conciliatory and moderate organisation that condemns violence as a means to achieve political ends. With access to other former HT insiders, and HT literature the group wanted to keep hidden, Shiraz reveals that HT Britain's conciliatory approach was merely a crude facade that concealed the same radical and extreme views.
