What is a proscribed terrorist group?  Task

The word ‘proscribed’ means that something is banned or forbidden. According to the Terrorism Act 2000, the Home Secretary can ban a group if they think it is connected to terrorism.  Terrorism means the threat or use of serious violence, severe damage to property, risks to public health and/or safety, or causes disruption to an electronic system. The use or threat of the action must be intended to influence the government or to threaten the public with an aim linked to a political, religious, racial or ideological cause.
