Islamic site says Birmingham school ‘take-over plot’ is a hoax

Screen shot of BBC coverage of story

Tahir Alam – who has been the target of an Islamophobic campaign, originating in the Sunday Times and subsequently taken up by a number of other media outlets including BBC News, which claimed that there was a “Islamic plot” to take over Birmingham schools and even that this was a case of “terrorism in the UK” – has issued a press statement refuting the allegations.

The hoax allegation is based solely on Tahir Alam’s statement. There is no discussion of the other suspicious evidence: fired teachers, etc.
