Jemima Khan receives death threats from Muslim extremists
by Sophie Borland
Jemima Khan has received death threats from Islamic extremists for supporting a Muslim group which preaches tolerance of other religions.
Mrs Khan, 34, is a patron of the Quilliam Foundation, a think tank that was recently set up by two reformed members of the extremist organisation Hizb ut Tahrir.
The group has received death threats by phone and email that are intended for all members involved in the organisation and it has been reported that one even referred to Mrs Khan by name.
During the launch of the think tank yesterday, Mrs Khan, the former wife of Imran Khan, who previously captained Pakistan's cricket team, admitted she had been nervous about voicing her support for the group.
