Asif Hanif and Omar Khan Sharif, who attended KCL, were involved in a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv in 2003. Hanif killed three people and injured fifty-five when he detonated explosives strapped to his body in a crowded bar. Sharif fled the scene after his explosives failed. The two men appeared in a Hamas video explaining their motivation and calling on God to punish Tony Blair and George W. Bush.
Roshonara Choudhry was in her final year at KCL when she attempted to murder Stephen Timms MP at a constituency surgery in 2010. Her motivation for stabbing Timms was that he had voted in favour of the 2003 Iraq War. She was inspired by watching videos of al-Qaida faciltator and Islamic militant Anwar Al-Awlaki, claiming that his lectures taught her that becoming a martyr was “the best way to die”.
Abdullah Hakim Quick spoke at KCL in February 2010, in an event hosted by the Islamic Society. Quick advocates the death penalty for homosexuals and describes Jews as “filth”. Although the event violated the university’s equal opportunities policy, which prohibits the promotion of hatred against minorities, it went ahead as planned.
