The Free Speech Union said they were concerned that the actions of the local charity had exposed the teacher to “serious disrepute and physical harm”, in a letter to the Charity Commission. In their letter they said: “It should have been clear to the trustee who signed the letter – and indeed to any reasonable person – that merely naming the teacher could endanger his personal safety. Naming him as a sadistic abuser of Islam, in the wake of the murder of Samuel Paty in Paris, was unforgivably reckless.”
