Gloucestershire University

Gloucestershire University

 

Between 2006 and 2011, the University of Gloucestershire received more than £1.5million from the Libyan Embassy in London.[1]

The Markfield Institute of Higher Education, set up and run by the Islamic Foundation,[2] is an Associate College of the University of Gloucestershire.[3] The Institute, according to Andrew Gilligan of the Daily Telegraph, is “the key institution of Islamist higher education in the UK”.[4] Its parent organisation, the Islamic Foundation, works to propagate the doctrines of Jamaat-e-Islami founder Abul Ala Mawdudi and Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Sayyid Qutb.[5]

Teachers and officials at the Markfield Institute have included Azzam Tamimi, who told the BBC that he would willingly carry out a suicide bombing in Israel,[6] and that “all the leaders of Hamas are my friends”;[7] Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, who has been convicted by Bangladesh’s war crimes tribunal of abducting and murdering 18 people;[8] and Khurshid Ahmad, Vice-President of Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami, who wrote that Afghan areas under Taliban rule were “the cradle of justice and peace”.[9]
