Summary Nawaz Maajid, a former ranking member in the London-based Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, was sent to an Egyptian prison during a roundup of radical Muslims after 9/11. He came out of jail four years later, completely changed, having been jailed along with the assassins of President Anwar Sadat, who's views on Islam and violence had changed over 20 their years in prison. Nawaz was convinced that his entire belief system had been wrong and once released started Quilliam, a foundation to combat the rising Islamist tide in Europe and elsewhere.
