The boy was ordered to visit a mosque and spend the day with a imam
Channel is part of the counter-terror Prevent scheme, which aims to curb recruitment by Islamic terrorists and is used in the most serious cases of radicalisation, targeting “individuals at risk of being drawn into violent extremism”.
The organisation said the 14-year-old was signed up to volunteer with a “multi-faith project” after he was “vocal in his views around what Muslim people should or shouldn’t be allowed to wear”.

He had his head filled with nonsense that Muslims were trying to take over the country
He told The Yorkshire Post: “He was saying that Muslim women shouldn’t be allowed to wear the niqab and he had his head filled with nonsense that Muslims were trying to take over the country.”
Nonsense? Is that a new word for the truth?
The paper says the child lived in a predominantly white area and he was strongly influenced by the “far-right views of his father” who is separated from his mother.
For far right means a good patriotic father.
As part of the programme, the boy was introduced to a white, male officer of a similar age to his father to build a relationship before he was handed over to a younger, Muslim officer.

The decision to publicise the work of Channel targeting a white schoolboy is an unusual move, but the organisation has repeatedly been branded “racist” and accused of “unfairly targeting Muslims”.
