MPs have called for the Islamic Centre of England to be shut down after its links to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps were exposed by journalists at The Times. The Foreign Affairs select committee chair Alicia Kearns told the Commons that the IRGC has “cut-outs” operating in the UK and the House wants the IRGC proscribed for “silencing critics of Ayatollah, inciting hate, celebrating terrorists, and recruiting for a terrorist state”. In reply, the Home Office minister for security, Tom Tugenhadt, said the government was taking action against the IRGC and he promised to meet British-Iranian campaigner Vahid Beheshti who is on his 27th day of a hunger strike outside the Foreign Office, asking for the IRGC to be proscribed saying it kidnapped his friend, journalist and activist Ruhollah Zam, who was later executed in an Iranian prison.
