The Guardian accuses former Muslim Minister of enabling radicals in government

SHAFAQNA – In a report published on Sunday, the Guardian -a prominent British newspaper – accused Baroness Warsi, the first Muslim woman to ever sit in Cabinet, to have facilitated the infiltration of radicals in government positions.

The Guardian wrote, “Islamic radicals are practicing entryism [political infiltration] of their own — into the heart of Whitehall – courtesy of a woman who was until recently a government minister.

Baroness Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in Cabinet, handed official posts to people linked to Islamist groups, including a man involved in an “unpleasant and bullying” campaign to win planning permission for the controversial London “megamosque” proposed by a fundamentalist Islamic sect.

Baroness Warsi runs a cross-government working group on anti-Muslim hatred, which projects she oversees alongside Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister.

The Guardian now argues that “Some members of the group are using their seats at the table to urge that Whitehall work with Islamist and extremist-linked bodies, including one described by the Prime Minister as a “political front for the Muslim Brotherhood”. Some are also pressing to lift bans on foreign hate preachers from entering Britain, including Zakir Naik, who has stated that “every Muslim should be a terrorist”.”

Baroness Warsi has yet to react to the allegations.

Lady Warsi who resigned her position in government in summer 2014 after the UK refused to condemn the war on Gaza as a crime against humanity, slammed officials last month stressing, “We needed to bring more people into the fold rather than increasingly adopt positions which pushed groups and individuals out to the fringe.
