A leading member of an extremist Islamic group is working as a senior official at the Home Office, it has emerged.
Abid Javaid is a 'senior executive officer' in the IT department at the scandal-hit Immigration and Nationality Directorate which processes tens of thousands of asylum and visa applications every year.
But he is also an activist in the fundamentalist Islamic group Hizb-ut Tahrir which believes in a worldwide Islamic state under Shariah law.
This is despite Tony Blair calling for the group to be banned last year.
