Obviously alienated and marginalized: Oxford University suspends jihad-supporting student

An Oxford student has been suspended by the university after trying to recruit for an extreme Islamist organisation.

Third-year engineering student Danial Farooq, 21, now faces an investigation after expressing support for jihad.

He says he is a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir which seeks to establish an Islamic state under Sharia law and is banned in more than a dozen countries worldwide – though not in the UK.
