Zelo Street blog on Real Student Rights campaign

Blogger Tim Fenton has written about the Real Student Rights campaign, which seeks to expose and oppose the front group ‘Student Rights’.

Fenton, whose blog is called Zelo Street, has covered Student Rights activities previously, in particular the antics of the organisation’s director, Raheem Kassam.

He argues that Kassam’s group Student Rights takes ‘any and every opportunity is taken to tap into fear of Muslims and anything Islamic’ and questions how secure Kassam’s position at the organisation is, given his spat with Robin Shepherd of the Henry Jackson Society which led to Kassam quitting ‘The Commentator’ and establishing ‘Trending Central’, which Fenton dubs ‘another repository of right-wing frothing and ranting’.
