Britain to Ban Pro-Palestinian Protest Organizer Hizb ut-Tahrir as Terrorist Group

(Telegraph-UK) Charles Hymas - Britain's Home Secretary James Cleverly has announced that Hizb ut-Tahrir will join a list of proscribed organizations which include Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and Hamas. The move means it becomes an offense to be a member of the group or to support it. Cleverly said: "Hizb ut-Tahrir is an anti-Semitic organization that actively promotes and encourages terrorism, including praising and celebrating the appalling October 7 attacks. Proscribing this terrorist group will ensure that anyone who belongs to and invites support for them will face consequences. It will curb Hizb ut-Tahrir's ability to operate as it does." A draft order banning the group will take effect from Jan. 19 if agreed by Parliament. Founded in 1953, Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international political group with a long-term goal of establishing a caliphate ruled under Islamic law.
