New Figures Reveal Extremist Preachers Widespread on UK Campuses
New research suggests that the prevalence of extremists at UK university campuses has worsened over the past year, with 233 incidents recorded in the 2013 by the pressure group Student Rights.
The organization, which monitors hard-line Islamist speakers as well as far-right activity in the United Kingdom, has revealed that 19 more events "of concern" took place on UK campuses last year, taking the total from 214 in 2012 to 233 in 2013.
The trend, which shows that extremist activity is on the rise on British university campuses, is noteworthy, especially after a concerted effort by campaign groups to halt the practice of gender segregation promoted by Islamist organizations and various student Islamic societies across the country.
