Muslim bookshop considering legal action against think tank
Muslim bookshop considering legal action against think tank
By Lucy Clapham


A HIGH Wycombe bookshop, which became the centre of a controversy about extremist Muslim literature, has said it may take legal action against the political think tank who threw it into the spotlight following a BBC investigation.

The Muslim Education Centre in Totteridge Drive was mentioned on Wednesday's Newsnight after it was included in the report The Hijacking of British Islam - How extremist literature is subverting mosques in the UK, published by Tory think tank Policy Exchange in October.

The document said seven books containing extremist material were found at the education centre by Policy Exchange researchers.

But the BBC team say they have uncovered evidence showing some of the receipts for the books said to have been bought by the think tank's researchers around the country were forged.

Newsnight investigators claim five out of the 25 receipts gathered from mosques and other centres by the think tank, and then supplied to the show, were forged.
