Trustees of the organisation have also been banned from running a charity.

A charity running a Stoke-on-Trent mosque has been dissolved - for 'facilitating terrorism'.
An investigation was launched into the Fazal Ellahi Charitable Trust after its Tunstall mosque was used to ‘condone or support terrorism’.

In the same Gallery, there are images of other religious themes but nobody has complained. Its a Gallery of modern art for crying out loud.

If we bitched & whined or made any noises about something offending to us, we'd get told to can it or be ignored.

Saatchi Gallery covers up artworks after Muslim visitors' complaints 

Paintings by SKU deemed blasphemous for combining Islamic text with nude images

A leading contemporary art gallery covered up works featuring an Islamic declaration of faith after complaints from Muslim visitors who said the artworks were blasphemous.
The Saatchi Gallery in west London hosted an exhibition of new material by the artist SKU featuring a variety of works. However, it decided to cover up two paintings that incorporated the text of the shahada, one of the five pillars of Islam, in Arabic script juxtaposed with images of nude women in the style of the US flag.
The gallery, founded by the advertising magnate Charles Saatchi, rejected calls from some visitors to remove the paintings, arguing it was up to visitors to come to their own conclusions on the meaning of the art. However, in response to the complaints, SKU suggested as a compromise the works should remain on the gallery wall but be covered up with sheets.
“It seemed a respectful solution that enables a debate about freedom of expression versus the perceived right not to be offended,” he said in a statement to the Sunday Times.

The Saatchi Gallery told the newspaper it “fully supported” freedom of artistic expression. “The gallery also recognises the sincerity of the complaints made against these works and supported the artist’s decision to cover them until the end of the exhibition,” it said.
The pseudonymous London-based artist has no social media accounts or public presence and takes their name from the retail term for a “stock keeping unit”. The exhibition, Rainbow Scenes, was billed as exploring “how we, as individuals, are subjected to wider cultural, economic, moral and political forces in society”.
Among other issues it dealt with were “the impact of these forces on us individually as we absorb such influences into our minds and our bodies”, the promotion of values in “symbols and propaganda” and an encouragement to the public “to reboot the world”. The exhibition ran from mid-April and finished on Friday.
Previous attempts to cover up works of art on public display have sometimes backfired, notably when Edinburgh airport decided to cover up a Picasso painting of a nude woman. Last year a row broke out among frustrated visitors to the stately home of Cragside in Northumberland after the National Trust decided to hide all artworks featuring men in order to celebrate the life of Margaret Armstrong, the wife of a 19th-century industrialist.

During the miner's strike of the 80s, the Thatcher government turned the police forces around the country into a paramilitary force and ordered them to break the strike no matter the cost. 

Here is a picture of police strike breakers chasing down a legal picket at the entrance to Orgreve mine. Notice that the police have hidden or removed their ID numbers on their epaulettes and some are carrying unofficial buttons.

This wasn't the last time that a Tory government used the police to break a strike, and during the poll tax demonstrations, they turned the police into an arm of oppression.

Health and Safety Executive ends Brunei project over gay sex law 

The government’s official health and safety organisation has said it will stop planned staff secondments to Brunei after unions raised concerns about the ethical and safety implications following the kingdom’s decision to punish gay sex by stoning to death.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which was seeking a team of three people to go to Brunei to help the country’s equivalent agency with regulatory work, said all links with the country would be “paused” pending a review.

Number of children in absolute poverty across UK hits 3.7 million after increases of 200,000 in a year
The number of children living in absolute poverty across the UK has increased by 200,000 in a year – to a total of 3.7 million.
New government data shows that while the rate of absolute child poverty had been gradually falling since 2012, it is now rising again.

The figures will come as an embarrassment for ministers, who last year responded to a rise in relative poverty by highlighting that absolute poverty rates – their preferred measure – had fallen.

Campaigners said the main drivers of the increase were cuts to benefits and tax credits, which have hit working families with more than two children particularly hard.

The figures show that among children in poverty there has been a rise in those who live in working families – up from 69 per cent to 72 per cent in a year
