An outspoken Muslim leader

CBN News goes to London and interviews Choudary Anjem, leader of “Islam for UK.” Choudary has exactly the same understanding of Islam as, say, Geert Wilders. He rejects the idea that Islam is a religion of peace, he says that there is a place for violence in Islam, he says that jihad is the second most frequently commanded duty in the Koran after belief itself, he approves of the 9/11 and 7/7 bombers, and he calls for Britain to be subjected to sharia law.

The report says that the Islam for UK group has been banned by the British government. Yet its leader, Anjem, still seems to be functioning and speaking in public and urging the submission of Britain to Islamic law. So it’s hard to see what this “ban” consists of. Perhaps the British government has banned Chowdary’s group in the same sense that Chelsea King’s parents prohibited Chelsea from running alone: they “frowned upon” her running alone. Similarly, we may infer that the British government frowns upon Islam for UK.
