The charities commission are investigating Khodam Al Mahdi Organisation. They are the extremists who run the Al Muhassin Mosque,home to controversial Islamic satellite television station Fadak TV. Hate preacher Sheikh Yasser al-Habib is regularly featured on Fadak TV stirring up sectarian tensions between shia and sunni Muslims. It has been alleged the charity used donations to buy property.
What the outcome of the investigation will be, who knows. Personally i think the charity commission are a waste of time. In the past their investigations have come to nothing. Even when investigating charities with clear links to terrorists abroad. Muslim charity Interpal for example, who are listed on American counter terrorism lists as fundraisers for Hamas.
Having spent quite a bit of time on the Charity Commission website looking for information. I have found Muslim charities certainly need looking into. I cannot believe the number of Muslim charities there are in the UK given that we are a non Muslim country.
They almost like a Muslim job creation scheme and money making machine at the same time. All eligible for grants and funding being a registered charity. In fact many are funded only by local authority and government grants.Often the trustee of one charity will also be the trustee of one or two others, all intertwined to maximize their funding. Some of the charities who have received significant funding such as the East London Mosque famous for its hate preacher guests has listed over 100 employees !!! All getting a wage funded partly by the British taxpayer.
Charity watchdog launches investigation into dissolved charity behind controversial Fulmer mosque

AN INVESTIGATION has been launched into a dissolved charity behind a controversial mosque amid concerns it used fundraising money to buy a property.
Charities watchdog, the Charity Commission, has opened a statutory inquiry into dissolved charity the Khodam Al Mahdi Organisation and charitable funds supposedly raised in its name.
The group is behind the Al Muhassin Mosque, in Windmill Lane, Fulmer, home to controversial Shia Muslim Sheikh Yasser al-Habib. The mosque plays host to hundreds of his followers every week and is home to Islamic satellite television station Fadak TV which airs his broadcasts, said to stir up conflict between the Shia and Sunni Muslims.
The Kuwaiti preacher has reportedly delivered sermons on the TV station celebrating the death of one of Sunni Islam’s most revered figures. He was also investigated by Ofcom two years ago after he reportedly suggested one of the Propher Muhammad’s successors was gay.
The commission said in August last year it became aware a charitable company had been dissolved at Companies House, since 2012, but said the charity had not informed the regulator it no longer existed or updated its details on the register, as it was required to do.
Commission investigators then found cash had supposedly been raised in the name of the charity, after it had dissolved, and was used to but a property.
A statement from the regulator read: “Following correspondence with the individuals holding the property, the regulator became increasingly concerned about the basis on which the funds were raised and the protection of the charitable property.
“In addition, the commission has concerns regarding the management and financial reporting by the former charity trustees.”
It opened the statutory inquiry on February 17. The investigation is examining the basis on which the funds were raised and is assessing whether former trustees of the dissolved charity and people holding the property have complied with charity law.
Officials will then publish a report after the inquiry detailing what issues were looked at, what actions were undertaken as part of the inquiry and the outcomes.
