A leading UK Muslim charity that was given a £250,000 taxpayer-funded contract to run a major faith project has been stripped of state funding.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, decided to take action against the Muslim Charities Forum after the newspaper The Telegraph uncovered links to a group alleged to fund Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood political movement.

The revelations prompted a full-scale government review of the charity’s activities, which led to wider concerns and criticism over the group’s links to extremist speakers at events in Britain.
