A BIRMINGHAM teacher on the frontline of Islamic radicalisation in Britain believes talking about it is the best way to prevent it.
Adeba Khan, who teaches at the Broadway Academy, told a meeting in Parliament she taught about jihad, and confronted pupils who held extremist beliefs.
Khan made her comments at an open meeting on combatting extremism and promoting community cohesion of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Religious Education on Tuesday this week.
Asked by Lapido Media how, as a teacher, she responded to pupils with extreme views she replied: ‘It’s our job to correct that.
‘Hiding and not talking about jihad is where the problem is.
‘We allow them to speak freely, it builds their character.’
