Anti-Semitic rants of Muslim activists who won PM's praise
Members of an 'anti-extremism group' which won praise from the Prime Minister have been found to have made homophobic and anti-Semitic comments.
Odara is a Muslim women's group claiming to promote integration. It has received more than £150,000 of taxpayers' money from counter-terrorism programme – Prevent.
Last year, then home secretary Theresa May said she was 'proud' to support the group 'working to stand up against the extremists who seek to divide us'.
But leader and co-founder of the organisation, Aysha Iqbal, and outreach worker, Tasmiyah Bint Naeem had posted a series of messages on their Facebook accounts which suggested they had extreme views themselves.
