A community kitchen supported by Meghan Markle is based in a mosque with links to terror suspects, it was alleged last night. 

The Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre is claimed to have links to 19 Islamic extremists including Jihadi John. 

A report in the Telegraph said that one of the imams at the mosque near Grenfell Tower had suggested women who listened to music were at risk of becoming strippers. 

The Duchess of Sussex has promoted a charity cookbook on the back of numerous visits to the Hubb Community Kitchen, based at the mosque.

The imam in question, Samer Darwish, is reported to have suggested that women should not pray while they are on their periods. 

Other jihadists with links to the mosque are claimed to include Choukri Ellekhlifi, Alexanda Kotey and Aine Davis. 

Research apparently carried out by the Henry Jackson Society said the Duchess had been ‘poorly advised’ over her links to the mosque. 

‘This is not one or two isolated cases but 19 separate individuals,’ a director of the anti-extremist group was quoted as saying. 

A spokesman for the mosque told the newspaper that the Muslim centre was ‘on the record rejecting and condemning extremism and terrorism’. 

Abdulrahman Sayed described it as a ‘vibrant and welcoming community hub’ that encouraged a sense of belonging for Muslims. 

Meghan has written the foreword to Together, a collection of global dishes by women from the Grenfell community and others, which aims to raise funds to expand their culinary work at the Al-Manaar mosque.

She returned to the mosque this week, putting on an apron and helping to prepare food.

Meghan helped prepare a large dish of rainbow roasted vegetables as she introduced chef Clare Smyth, a friend of hers, to the volunteers in the kitchen. 

The book took the number one spot on Amazon within hours of being unveiled two months ago and has since sold nearly 40,000 copies in the UK alone, raising £210,000.

The kitchen, redesigned with the women’s input to capture its spirit as a place for the community to come together over meals, now opens seven days a week, up from just two when it began last year. 

The 37-year-old is understood to have made several private visits to the mosque in Westbourne Park.   

Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John, was killed in an airstrike in November 2015.

Kotey is also said to have been one of the ISIS execution group which was dubbed the ‘Beatles’.
