Exposure: Charities Behaving Badly

Exposure goes undercover to reveal race hatred, religious bigotry, and extreme right wing activism in registered charities. In one of them, jihad is openly discussed as an option for supporters.

There are over 160,000 registered charities in England and Wales, with a combined income of more than 60 billion pounds. But when we give money, how do we always know where it is going? Are charities now out of control?

Three undercover reporters have spent six months penetrating charities that look respectable – and find shocking evidence of hatred and bigotry. In one charity, supporters quote from Hitler’s Mein Kampf and hail “white power” and “Victory to the Aryan Race”. In another charity, impressionable school children are taught that “to destroy Hindu history is the secret conspiracy of the Christians” and “if it comes to Islam, they are the world’s worst religion.”

In a third charity, one organizer tells us of his admiration for Anwar al Awlaki – the mentor of the Charlie Hebdo murderers. “He incited bombings, bruv – he was a brilliant guy, though.”

The Charity Commission tells Exposure: “It’s absolutely shocking.”
