Teacher at Tower Hamlets school 'condoned Charlie Hebdo terror attack in front of pupils'
by David Churchill
A teacher faces a classroom ban after he allegedly "condoned" the Charlie Hebdo terror attack in front of pupils at a Tower Hamlets school.
Hamza Jalal Tariq, 28, effectively said during a lesson that the victims murdered by Islamist gunmen "should be killed for insulting the prophet", a professional conduct panel ruled.
The panel heard Tariq made the comment in response to a student just days after 12 people were murdered in the French satirical newspaper's Paris office in January last year.
Tariq was a teacher at Tower Hamlets PRU, which has four sites across the east London borough, since 2013, but resigned after the accusations surfaced.
