For years now advocacy groups, activists and academics have been met with a wall of secrecy when petitioning the government to release the science behind their counter-terrorism and counter-extremism strategy.

A few months ago, however, advocacy group CAGE came across a journal article hidden away in a niche journal in the United States. It is this article that has formed the basis of a shocking report released today by CAGE entitled, ‘The “Science” of Pre-Crime’.

Islam21c carried out an exclusive interview with the Research Director for CAGE, Asim Qureshi, to explain the report’s findings and their significance. Click the player above to watch.

A special thanks to Huda Tv UK for filming the interview.
