Undercover Mosque

Prime Minister Tony Blair recently described tolerance as ‘what makes Britain Britain’ but in this extensive undercover investigation, Dispatches reveals how a message of hatred and segregation is being spread throughout the UK, inspired by Saudi Arabia – a country our government calls its principal ally in the Middle East.

Dispatches has investigated a number of mosques run by high profile national organisations that claim to be dedicated to moderation and dialogue with other faiths. But an undercover reporter joined worshippers to find a message of religious bigotry and extremism being preached.

The investigation reveals Saudi Arabian universities are recruiting young Western Muslims to train them in their extreme theology, then sending them back to the West to spread the word. And the Dispatches reporter discovers that British Muslims can ask for fatwas, religious rulings, direct from the top religious leader in Saudi Arabia, the Grand Mufti.

 

 

 

 
 

UNDERCOVER MOSQUE
A DISPATCHES INVESTIGATION for Channel 4

First broadcast: Monday 15th January 2007; 8pm

Saudi-trained preachers are also promoted in DVDs and books on sale at religious centres and sermons broadcast on websites. These publications and webcasts disseminate beliefs about women such as: “Allah has created the woman deficient, her intellect is incomplete”, and girls: “By the age of 10 if she doesn’t wear hijab, we hit her,” and there’s an extreme hostility towards homosexuals.

The investigation reveals that the influence of Saudi Arabian Islam, Wahabism, extends beyond the walls of some mosques to influential organisations that advise the British government on inter-community relations and prevention of terrorism. The Dispatches reporter attends talks at mosques run by key organisations whose public faces are presented as moderate and mainstream - and finds preachers condemning the idea of integration into British society, condemning British democracy as unIslamic and praising the Taliban for killing British soldiers.
