A radical Islamist is treating mentally ill patients on the NHS. Dr Imran Waheed openly admits to being a member of fundamentalist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, who are banned in a number of countries and have been accused of advocating an ideology that is sexist, anti-semitic and extremely homophobic.
Imran Waheed is a Consultant Psychiatrist with NHS and private practices in Birmingham. He qualified from the University of Birmingham and has trained in most teaching hospitals in the West Midlands area.
He has a special interest in the assessment and treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, social phobia, sexual dysfunction and psychosis.
Despite his professional commitments, which inevitably involve working with vulnerable people, he admits on his “Comment is Free” page that he is media representative for Hizb ut-Tahrir.
Dr Imran Waheed is an Islamic activist and writer. He is the media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, a global Islamic political party. He has been active in Muslim community affairs for over a decade and has lectured widely at seminars and conferences throughout the UK and abroad. He has given numerous media interviews about Muslim community affairs and has been a vocal critic of the Iraq war
Hizb ut-Tahrir is illegal in many Islamic countries for its radical views. In an interview with “World Security Network”, Dr Waheed himself said: “Our aim is to reestablish the Islamic Caliphate in the Muslim world.”
Such are their terrorist links that Tony Blair considered banning the group in wake of the 2005 London bombings. David Cameron also supported their prohibition while in opposition. They are proscribed by the National Union of Students, who accuse them of trying to spread extremism on campus.

Now imagine his patients were female, homosexual, Jewish or former-Muslims, is it likely that they will get unbiased professional care at his hands? Should someone who is an active recruiter for an extremist group be in contact with vulnerable people going through difficult phases in their life?
