AL Muhajiroun Tagretting Campuses

Prof Anthony Glees, the director of Brunel University's Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, has warned that Al Muhajiroun is still targeting campuses across Britain. He produced a report last year detailing how at least 31 universities had radical Islamic Societies and is quoted by The Telegraph saying:

We must accept this problem is widespread and underestimated. Unless clear and decisive action against campus extremism is taken, the security situation in the UK can only deteriorate.
Omar Bakri was quoted by an Arabic newspaper (translated and reported by the Institute for Counter-Terrorism) detailing how he targeted the main campuses and would deliver up to 30 lectures a week. Anjem Choudary was also quoted telling the newspaper that "students of Omar Bakri still continue to preach in campuses."
