Update: Watch the Footage From Inside the UK Child-Beating Mosque


"We stand by our investigation..."

We first brought you the story of children being beaten inside Bratain's Markazi Jamia mosque last night. At that time, we provided still images from a full undercover report set to air tonight on the program "Dispatches" on Britain's Channel 4. Video from that report is now available in part, and it shows just what the children were forced to endure:

According to the Daily Mail, one of the mosques featured in Channel 4's report (not the one shown above) has been forced to close amid security concerns:

An Islamic school at the centre of a documentary row will close tomorrow amid safety fears.

Teachers at the Darul Uloom Islamic High School, in Small Heath, Birmingham, have held meetings with police chiefs and fear that youngsters could be targeted by the far-Right.

The Dispatches documentary, Lessons in Hatred and Violence, is due to air tonight and will show footage of a preacher making offensive remarks about Hindus and ranting: 'Disbelievers are the worst creatures'.

But teachers at the school insist the undercover reporter captured an isolated incident where a 17-year-old senior student was talking to pupils.

The have provided a letter which shows that he was expelled for his views last August - five months before the school was made aware of the tapes by producers.

A Birmingham faith leader has now backed the school's record of teaching tolerance and MP John Hemming said he believed the documentary was irresponsible and had put schoolchildren at risk.

Despite the school's accusations, a spokesman for Channel 4 defended the documentary:

This investigation, which is clearly in the public interest, shows secret footage of numerous adults on different occasions teaching pupils as young as 11 years of age contempt for other religions and wider society. We stand by our investigation and think the programme speaks for itself.
