The London university attended by the Islamic State murderer Mohamed Emwazi has hosted the highest number of extremist or intolerant speakers over the past three years, a report claims.

The University of Westminster, where the terrorist known as “Jihadi John” gained a computer programming degree, offered a platform to radical speakers on 25 occasions between 2012 and 2014.

They included Shohana Khan and Adnan Khan, representatives from the hardline group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which promotes a caliphate ruled by Sharia. The government has threatened to ban it and it is on the National Union of Students’ “no-platform” list.
