London UK, 14th Dec 2009 – On Friday 11th December, following investigations, authorities in Haringey council have said that they could find no evidence to support allegations by Conservative leader David Cameron and Michael Gove that local Muslim schools were a front for the Islamic political party Hizb ut-Tahrir.
The press reported that the council’s investigations concluded that "No evidence was found to suggest inappropriate content or influence in the school".
Commenting on these developments, Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “This whole episode shows the true reality of the Tory party and how it uses lies and propaganda to gain political popularity."
“The reason the Tory party is obsessed with silencing Hizb ut-Tahrir is our uncompromising criticism of Western foreign policy in Muslim countries. The Tory front bench represents the new face of neoconservatism in Britain, continued war in Afghanistan and Pakistan, uncritical loyalty to Israel and the brutal suppression of Muslim political voices in Britain."
"Whilst the Tory party continues to fabricate lies about Hizb ut-Tahrir and calls for our banning, Hizb ut-Tahrir challenges the Tory leadership to face us in an open debate about the future of relations between the West and the Muslim world. We suspect the Tory party will not have the courage to take up this challenge but will continue to recycle their half-baked lies.”
