Fazal Rehman is a maintenance technician at Imago Venues, Loughborough University. In May 2023, we uncovered a series of highly offensive tweets that are in breach of the IHRA definition of antisemitism, including tweets that promote antisemitic tropes, Holocaust inversion, and Nazi comparisons.
Rehman also tweeted the Nazi salute “Hiel Hitler [sic]”.
We informed Loughborough University about Fazal Rehman’s conduct online. The Jewish Telegraph reported on this story and a Union of Jewish Students said they were “deeply concerned by reports of unacceptable remarks by this member of staff.” The University, which is one of many academic institutions in the UK that is committed to the IHRA definition of antisemitism, launched an investigation into Rehman’s conduct.
Meanwhile, Fazal Rehman protected his Twitter account meaning that his tweets are only viewable by his followers.
