An off-campus event hosted by the King’s College London Islamic Society advertised promotional material which initially pledged a ‘mystery speaker’ before revealing Zahir Mahmood as a guest.He has previously claimed the West has ‘been vilifying, demonising the Muslims, Islam, and especially the Prophet’, and that Hamas ‘are not terrorists, they’re freedom fighters’.‘If the Prevent guidelines are not working, they need to be toughened up.‘Given what has gone on in our country over the past few months, they have a real responsibility to stop extremism on campus.’Anthony Glees, director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, added: ‘Universities should not be soap boxes for extremists.In most instances, these events have been unbalanced in nature, meaning that speakers are disseminating their views without being challenged.‘Only a joint effort by university staff, students, event organisers and practitioners from across civil society will ensure that extremism is challenged robustly.’Nick Hillman, of the Higher Education Policy Institute, added: ‘These are intensely difficult issues, especially for autonomous universities at the forefront of free debate and new knowledge.‘However, the law and regulations are clear and students and universities need to ensure they are applied in full.‘Our recent survey of free speech issues among students showed they are confused about these issues and also remarkable impressionable.‘So universities could usefully discuss what is reasonable and what is harder to defend with their students, especially their freshers arriving on campus now.’A Department for Education spokesperson said: ‘There is no place at universities for those who spread hate or seek to justify terrorism.

Mr Khan has referred to homosexuality as ‘evil’, ‘wretched’, ‘shameful’, a ‘sin’ and a ‘criminal act’.It said in all but one of the cases uncovered, the speakers were allowed to disseminate their views without being challenged.They said the events featuring extreme speakers and organisations were routinely advertised to students through social media pages.By law, academic freedom applies to professors and lecturers so that they can disseminate knowledge.‘People pay to go to universities to learn from their professors, not to listen to radical speakers.‘I hope that this report is taken seriously.‘Universities have a duty of care to students and they need to exercise their authority.‘The events in Manchester and London mean universities cannot pretend that terror is not a threat.It is unacceptable that some appear to be failing to crack down on extremism.‘Clearly, the Prevent guidelines are not working.’Universities whose student societies invited extreme speakers also included King’s College London and Queen Mary London.
