Students’ union investigates Queen Mary University of London society, which says it is looking for ‘better clarity’ on allegations

The Islamic society at Queen Mary University of London has been suspended while the students’ union investigates alleged breaches of protocols and procedures.

The society said on its Facebook page that the move had come about as a result of allegations that it was unclear about, and it was working with the students’ union “to gain better clarity”.

The society has been accused in the past of hosting events addressed by speakers associated with Islamist organisations such as Hizb ut-Tahrir, which seeks to form a global Islamic state regulated by sharia law.

There was no immediate comment from representatives of the students’ union, but the suspension was confirmed by the university, which is a member of the Russell Group of leading British research institutions.
