The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) must pay $3.4 million to British anti-extremism organization Quilliam for saying the group hated Muslims, according to a settlement announced Monday. The founder of Quilliam, Maajid Nawaz, is a self-described secular Muslim who works to challenge Islamic extremism. The SPLC, a U.S. nonprofit organization, included Quilliam in its Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists. Nawaz once was involved with extremist groups but changed his views and now works to combat both anti-Muslim prejudice and radical Islam.
