Islamic Schools Approved by Charity Commission An investigation conducted by the Charity Commission has denied claims that the Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation (ISF) has links with controversial political party Hizb ut-Tahrir and has been teaching political ideology at their primary schools in Slough and Haringey, the BBC reported.

The investigation followed David Cameron’s criticism of the Labour Party’s decision to inject £113,000 of taxpayers’ money into the foundation’s school in Petersfield Avenue, Slough, despite his claim that the charity was simply a ‘front organisation’ for the Hizb ut-Tahrir, reported the Maidenhead Advertiser.
 
He was quoted by the Telegraph saying: “How can you have an anti-extremist fund that results in Labour local authority handing out money to extremists?”

Reports of ties between the ISF and Hizb ut-Tahrir were sparked by the school’s head teacher Farah Ahmed’s past membership to the party and by former trustee Yusra Hamilton’s marriage to the party’s media representative in Britain, Taji Mustafa, reported the BBC. The source added that while Hamilton resigned from the ISF in November 2009, Ahmed was not longer a member of the political party and has not been for a few years.

Ahmed was quoted by the Maidenhead Advertiser saying that she ‘does not agree with all Hizb ut-Tahrir’s views as a political organization’ and thanking supporters of the school for their loyalty while it was ‘under attack’ from certain political personalities and a ‘hostile media’. Ahmed added that the school would continue its work to provide a ‘balanced Islamic education in line with the Foundation’s objectives’, which include advancing the education of pupils, the religion of Islam and providing relief of financial hardship to its students, according to BBC reports.

The Telegraph quoted the Charity Commission’s statement saying that the ISF accepted that it’s primary schools “cannot promote any particular ideology or philosophy although they can, and do, promote Islamic religion”. The statement added: “The expressing of strongly controversial or partisan views on a particular subject may be seen to compromise a charity’s integrity, purposes or activities”.
