Muslims are boycotting Prevent, the British governmentâs anti-radicalisation programme, with community leaders accounting for less than a tenth of extremism tip-offs.
The vast majority of tip-offs are instead coming from public services, such as schools and hospitals, or the police.
The Times reports that although the figures include extremism of different varieties, including far right, they show the hostility in Muslim communities towards the so-called Prevent programme, and raise concerns that police are being denied information that could prevent terror attacks.
Earlier this month, the Waltham Forest Council of Mosques, which represents tens of thousands of worshippers in east London, said was boycotting the scheme, while Muslim leaders in neighbouring Newham accused the scheme of âspying on our young peopleâ.
The Prevent programme aims to identify individuals at risk of radicalisation and sends them to support schemes. An essential part of the programme involves people reporting friends and neighbours they believe to be showing signs of extremism.
However, the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) says that of 3,288 referrals in the first half of 2015, only 280 (8.6 per cent) were from local communities.
Muslims have accused the programme of being âMcCarthyiteâ and turning people against one another. They highlight a number of cases they claim show the scheme going over the top, including one instance where a boy was quizzed about extremist links after using the word âÃ©coterrorismeâ in a French lesson.
In July, a number of Islamist sympathisers signed an open letter to The Independent calling for the government to scrap the programme. The letter said it âreinforce[s] a prejudicial worldview that perceives Islam to be a retrograde and oppressive religion that threatens the West.â

Are our muslims as bad as their muslims?
stupid question? just wondering.
takes a little more effort to get here. I was hoping they might be a little different.
Wonder if liberals scratch their heads after reading this.
Islam = false religion & jihadist ideology
Mohammedans = purple-pi$$ing terrorists
The FBI and Homeland Security say the same thing.
I’ve got a little history here. I’m not a troll.
just a hopeless optimist sometimes and the naÃ¯ve Christian peeks out every now and then. :(
That being said, NO sharia law here. @$#@$ our kids saying Aluha Akbar or whatever the @#$@# it is.
adhere to the constitution of leave!!
they do? that answers my earlier question...
to denounce extremist muslims is to denounce mohammed...
Well they are a ROP and they are being peaceful! They are merely ensuring no violence comes to the Jiadists!
See? Perfectly consistent with their peaceful natures.
They lack the decency to live in Western civilization.
Police need to make a better offer than the 72 virgins.
Retrograde and Oppressive Religion that threatens the West.

All playing for the same team. There’s just defense and offense.
Not all Germans were Nazis, but the majority of Germans gave their support to Hitler in one way or another.
