The Home Secretary James Cleverly wants to ban the international Islamist political group Hiz but-Tahrir as he has branded them as “antisemitic.”
Cleverly warned that the Islamist group “promotes and encourages terrorism” and wants to proscribe the terror unit.
Cleverly will put an order before Parliament to make Hiz but-Tahrir illegal in the UK under the UK terrorism laws.
If Parliament agrees to the ban, it will come into force on Friday, meaning, “belonging to, inviting support for and displaying articles in a public place in a way that arouses suspicion of membership or support for the group will be a criminal offence.”
Cleverly said, “Hizb ut-Tahrir is an antisemitic organisation that actively promotes and encourages terrorism, including praising and celebrating the appalling October 7 attacks.
“Proscribing this terrorist group will ensure that anyone who belongs to and invites supports for them will face consequences.
“It will curb Hizb ut-Tahrir’s ability to operate as it currently does.”
