Daily Star Sunday Corrects Significantly Misleading Headline About UK Mosques and ‘Funding of Terror’

On 22 November 2015, the Daily Star Sunday had published an article implying that Mosques in the UK were involved in fundraising for terrorism. The original headline, ‘UK Mosques Fundraising for terror’ had breached the code for accuracy, which the MCB had made a complaint to IPSO about, and the paper had published a clarification in print, and amended their online version.

Their Clarification

“The headline to this article was amended on 4 April 2016. The headline previously said “UK mosques fundraising for terror”. We would like to clarify that the headline was based on the claims of radical Isa Amriki that funding for terrorism came from collections at mosques, not by or on behalf of UK mosques, which were not involved in any way”.
