The Pears Foundation and Forward Thinking

November 10, 2011

On May 13 2011 we published articles (including an article entitled "Pears funded charity which hosted jihadist") which related to the Pears Foundation, a charity called Forward Thinking, and an individual called Tafazal Mohammed. We have since accepted that Mr Mohammed is not a jihadist and have apologised to him for this error. It follows that there was no basis for linking the Pears Foundation or Forward Thinking (or, for the avoidance of doubt, its
director, Oliver McTernan) to any jihadist. We apologise to both the Pears Foundation and Forward Thinking for any distress caused.
