Islamic Extremists Thriving In Leicestershire

We send our thanks to the concerned Leicestershire citizen who has sent the following information:

 Faiz Siddiqi of Hijaz College in Hinckley enjoyed and continues to enjoy close links with the Tottenham Ayatollah
‘Hijaz’ is the name used by many to refer to ‘Hijaz College’ which now also purports to be an ‘Islamic University,’ see under the name ‘Hijaz Islamic University’  

Faiz Siddiqi aka Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi heads Hijaz and its various associated organizations. He is a hardliner and an extremist who led who led an anti-Charlie Hebdo demonstration after 11 of the magazine’s staff were murdered by terrorists, see He runs the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal which is a Sharia Court system and the only Sharia Court system which is recognized under English law. It was established under the 1996 Arbitration Act on a statutory basis and as a result its decisions can be upheld by English courts, see   Concerns have been expressed by the Home Secretary Theresa May and she already indicated she wishes to launch an independent review into sharia courts and councils amid concerns that a “parallel” justice system is developing in Britain.   
In 1996, documentary maker, Jon Ronson, spent a year profiling cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed. Omar Bakri is a Syrian Salafi Islamist 'militant' hate preacher and self styled leader. He was instrumental in developing Hizb ut-Tahrir in the United Kingdom before leaving the group and heading another Islamist organisation, Al-Muhajiroun, until its disbandment in 2004. 
On 6 August 2005 Bakri left the United Kingdom following stories that the UK Government were planning to investigate certain Muslim clerics under little-used treason laws. He was banned from returning by British Home Secretary Charles Clarke stating that Bakri's presence in Britain was "not conducive to the public good." He subsequently took up residence in Lebanon. 
The documentary was aired on 8 April 1997 and was 1 hour long. It is not on Youtube or any of the other mainstream sites and it appears to have gone under the radar for many years, especially in relation to the links between Omar Bakri and friends with Faiz Siddiqi because even Jon Ronson himself hadn’t made the link!  
The clip of interest is here Omar Bakri with Faiz Siddiqi at Hijaz College, Coventry

The clip starts with the presenter from the ‘Jewish London’ Radio station explaining that Omar Bakri is organising a rally in London at which Osama Bin Laden is due to speak, the founding member of Hamas had sent a written message of support from his prison cell in Israel and Omar Abdul Rahman, the ‘blind sheikh’ who was convicted of planning the bombing of the World Trade Centre had sent a videoed message.   Jon Ronson goes on to explain that ‘in the days leading up to the rally in London a secret meeting / ‘weekend social get together’ was arranged in a country house in Birmingham with ‘all of Britain’s Islamic fundamentalist leaders.’ Jon Ronson goes on to describe how ‘the country’s most important and ‘media shy’ Islamic fundamentalist leaders are present for the meeting, including representatives from Hamas, Hezbollah and the Algerian Liberation Party’. Jon Ronson explains nobody was meant to know the meeting was taking place at all.  What Jon Ronson was unaware of, and is probably still unaware of is, that it wasn’t  ‘a country house in Birmingham,’ it was in fact a country house in Nuneaton, a sleepy village in Warwickshire some 20 miles or so outside of Birmingham called Hijaz College also known as Higham Grange on Watling Street and the meeting was organized and hosted by Faiz Siddiqi!  The shorter 6 min clip from 1.53 onwards shows Hijaz, although it is dark. From 3.26 onwards the cameramen are at the door to Hijaz and the foyer is clearly visible. At 4.38 onwards, Hijaz can be clearly seen and can be compared to the pictures on the Hijaz
College website and can be compared to the pictures here and more recently, just a few weeks ago, here Alternatively, locals from Hinckley / Nuneaton, details of whom can be provided, will confirm the video shows Hijaz College. [  shows the history of the Hall. Higham-on-the-Hill is actually in Leicestershire, the postal address is Nuneaton, Warwickshire. - Ed] 

Towards the end of the video, a young Faiz Siddiqi can be seen fooling around with a wooden slingshot whilst Omar Bakri is fishing. They make fun of Omar Bakri as to how he will fight Jihad if he can't even keep hold of a fish.  The weekend get together didn’t just consist of a meeting on the Friday night however – I know by those present that it was in fact a weekend of meetings and ‘military training camp’ as Hijaz is hidden away. On the Hijaz website, its location is described as “set in the heart of the English countryside within 62 acres.  The site is pleasantly secluded, and is located on the A5.  Hijaz ideally situated centrally, facilitating easy access from all parts of the country.  The nearest major cities are Birmingham, Leicester and Coventry.” See
Such meetings of extremists and fanatics have taken place regularly since 1996, except they have been secret meetings and within the knowledge of only a select few. I have been told of at least 5 other meetings in the last 5 years.  It has been relayed to me by persons close to Faiz Siddiqi that the annual gathering called the Blessed Summit in July at Hijaz is in fact a cover for a meeting of fundamentalists, extremists and terrorists who attend hidden amongst the guests as it would be difficult for the intelligence services to keep watch over such people in the middle of the countryside, see
