Some Quilliam advisors drop out?

Ahead of their official launch later today (1pm in the UK), I decided to take another look at the Quilliam Foundation website and noticed some of the (Muslim) names on their board of advisors had been removed.

Here was a list of Muslim advisors when the website first went up:

Shaikh BaBikr Ahmed BaBikr
Shaikh Abdal-Aziz Al-Bukhari
Shaikh Dr Usama Hassan
Shaikh Ali al-Saleh al-Najafi
Mufti Abu Laith al-Maliki
Imam Dr Musharraf Hussain al-Azhari
Shaikh Abdus Subhan
Professor Yahya Michot

Three of these names have been removed: Yahya Michot, Abdus Subhan and Abu Laith al-Maliki. I couldn’t find anything on why they have been removed, other than some speculation on MPACUK’s forums.

Unsurprisingly, websites denouncing the foundation’s creators, especially Maajid Nawaz, have appeared.
