"The Islamic Society at Greenwich University, where both the Woolwich suspects are thought to have studied, has hosted a series of radical Muslim speakers and distributed extremist literature, The Telegraph can disclose.
The group’s possible role in radicalising Michael Adebolajo, [photo] 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22 , is coming under close scrutiny after it emerged that the society had promoted extremist views for years.
Efforts to put a stop to campus extremism, led by the Government and the umbrella group Universities UK, appear to have had little effect on activities at the south-east London former polytechnic.
Adebolajo is believed to have studied at Greenwich from September 2003 after completing A-levels at Havering Sixth Form College.
Adebowale is thought to have studied business and may have completed a specialist course unit in “organisational behaviour and human resources management”.
The Telegraph has learnt that a pamphlet written by a preacher who was banned from entering Britain by the Home Secretary in 2010 was distributed during a freshers’ fair at Greenwich University in 2011. Dr Zakir Naik, the author, said in the booklet: “Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”
