Following on from the news a couple of weeks ago that the new Quilliamite Usama Hasan had written to the Charity Commission to ask them to investigate alleged extremism at Masjid Tawhid – from where he had only recently resigned as a Trustee after many years, it now emerges that Masjid Tawhid held an emergency meeting of the Trustees there a few days ago.
According to a statement they have issued this has now resulted in the dismissal of Usama Hasan’s father, Suhaib Hasan who had been the Chief Imam there for many years.
Here is the statement from Masjid Tawhid:
On 14th June 2012 a special meeting was called by the Trust in relation the Charity
Commission enquiry, and allegations of inviting controversial speakers, dating back to 1998.
The outcome of the meeting was as follows :
- It was mentioned that it is well known that the individuals responsible from 1998 till 2011 for inviting all speakers to the Trust were Dr Suhaib Hasan and other family members including Usama Hasan.
- Consequently decisive action had to be taken by the rest of the Trust, and this resulted in the dismissal of Dr Suhaib Hasan.
- The Arbitration process has been seriously undermined by the behaviour and the actions of members of the Hasan family.
