Leading Islamic charity told by watchdog to distance itself from those who condone 'violent extremism and acts of terrorism'
by Camilla Turner
A leading Islamic charity which penned an open letter criticising The Sunday Telegraph's reports about its extreme speakers and filed numerous complaints to the press regulator has been warned by the Charities Commission it must distance itself from individuals who condone "violent extremism and acts of terrorism".
Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) was investigated by the charities watchdog amid allegations that its leaders promote anti-Semitism and have called for homosexuals and female adulterers to be stoned to death.
The inquiry, which lasted almost three years, concluded that trustees must do more to prevent associating with organisations and individuals who "encourage or support terrorism and/or extremist views".
