Intelligence and security expert Professor Anthony Glees, who published a report last year warning of the risks of students being radicalised, said he believed there should be far more checks on students from abroad.
“Students should be interviewed in order to make sure that they are committed to academic study,” he said.
“We can’t be sure of the extent of the problem and indeed we can’t be sure of the precise way in which campuses and colleges and possibly schools feature in this deadly activity.”
In October, the BBC reported that the radicalisation of students by Islamist groups was a growing problem on some university campuses.
Senior academics warned that the authorities were doing little to tackle the problem.
Det der står, er jo i realiteten, at myndighederne ikke aner et klap om, hvad der foregår. Hvilke uddanelser er det lige de britiske terrorister havde? Nå jo – akademikere ind af en kant. Og så siger de ‘ekstremistisk islam’?? Er islam ikke ekstrem i sig selv?
