London, Jan 31 (ANI): MI5 is signing up teachers in various Muslim schools across the United Kingdom to work as spies to stop the radicalisation of students.
Many have agreed to work as agents spying on fellow members of staff and are now sending intelligence reports on suspected jihadis to their handlers in London, the Daily Star reports.
There are fears that students as young as seven are being targeted by hate preachers.
Some youngsters have been told all non-Muslims are the enemies of Islam.
Intelligence sources said that there have even been reports of teachers showing execution videos to Muslim pupils as part of their religious education.
Some teachers are known to have contacted MI5 independently to volunteer their services but many others have been approached by the service seeking help. (ANI)
