Birmingham school dubbed ‘Trojan Horse’ for Islamist radicals ‘holdsassemblies promoting notorious Al Qaeda recruitment agent’

Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born cleric linked to al-Qaeda in Yemen speaking from an undisclosed location. Awlaki was killed in 2011 by a U.S. drone strike and was linked in his life to confirmed terrorists. He has become popular in extremist circles.

Park View Primary School in Birmingham, an “outstanding” school which has been a national flagship school for the state system has been the centre of an alleged extremist plot to promote positive views on jihad.

A senior teacher at the school, which also features almost 100% Muslim students, has repeatedly endorsed radical terrorist icon Anwar al-Awlaki, one of the most important al-Qaeda recruiters who was killed in a drone strike in 2011.

More: A Muslim headmistress told last night how she was driven out of her job by extremists bent on taking over state schools.

Her school is one of 12 apparently targeted by Islamic fundamentalists in a plot dating back two decades.

In a letter seen by the Mail, a fanatic brags about enlisting four radical parents to help oust her in 1993.

She said: ‘I was the victim of a pernicious, well-orchestrated smear campaign I have never been able to recover from.

‘People need to know this is a dangerous, well-organised and sinister group who have the capacity to destroy. They are producing fear in society and playing on paranoia. They are extremely powerful.’

The 69-year-old believes she was seen as an enemy because she was too moderate a Muslim. She was confronted with a number of allegations, including one of financial mismanagement.

Despite protesting her innocence her dismissal followed in 1994.
