New measures to tackle hate preachers and extremist websites have been proposed by a taskforce set up by Prime Minister David Cameron in the wake of the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby at Woolwich barracks.
David Cameron said the killing of soldier Lee Rigby and the murder of Mohammed Saleem by an Islamophobic extremist were "wake-up calls" for the government to take action against extremism.
This summer we saw events that shocked the nation with the horrific killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich and murder of Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham.
These tragedies were a wake-up call for Government and wider society to take action to confront extremism in all its forms, whether in our communities, schools, prisons, Islamic centres or universities.
I have been absolutely clear that this is not something we should be afraid to address for fear of cultural sensitivities. We have already put in place some of the toughest terrorism prevention controls in the democratic world, but we must work harder to defeat the radical views which lead some people to embrace violence.
The taskforce I set up has proposed a broad range of measures to counter the extremist narrative and I will make sure they are taken forward.
New measures aimed at tackling hate preachers and extremist websites have been proposed by a taskforce set up by David Cameron in the wake of the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby at Woolwich barracks.
The proposals include a new Terror and Extremism Behaviour Order which would allow authorities to take action against people seeking to radicalise others is a similar way to Asbos.
Other measures could include filters to block radical websites - even if they are hosted abroad - and new powers to deal with organisations which raise funds for terror or spread extremist messages under the guise of charities.
Activities which radicalise others and not simply violent extremism itself is the problem that must be tackled, a report by the taskforce, which is led by Home Secretary Theresa May, said.
The Prime Minister unveiled the proposals during his visit to China and said he wanted to see "an end to hate preaching in Britain" and left no doubt that he intends to implement the recommendations of the report.
