UK’s HSBC Closes More Muslims’ Accounts


In a systematic anti-Muslim campaign, HSBC British Bank has closed the account of a renowned British Muslim activist,Azzam tamimi, who is the founder of the Arabic language Al Hiwar TV channel, and his wife, amid reports of an imminent closure of more accounts held by Muslims organizations.

Last month, HSBC closed several accounts held by key Islamic organizations across UK, sparking anger among UK Muslims and the organizations’ leaders who said they were being unfairly targeted in an “Islamophobic campaign”.

The Cordoba Foundation think-tank, Finsbury Park Mosque in north London and Bolton-based charity the Ummah Welfare Trust were among Muslims NGOs that faced accounts closure by HSBC that claimed they were “too risky”.

A similar action is expected to be faced by more UK Muslim NGOs, according to the Guardian.According to Muslim activists, the main reason behind the closure of Tamimi’s account is because of his support for Gaza and Syria.
