Imams Jekyll and Hyde

Oh happy days! I am elated.
A libel claim brought against the BBC by Chief Imam, Shakeel Begg, has been dismissed today.
Mr Begg, the Chief Imam at Lewisham Islamic Centre, sought damages against the BBC for libel in respect of a broadcast of Sunday Politics presented by Andrew Neil on BBC One, 3 November 2013. [...]

Shahid Raza Naeemi, the Muslim Council of Britain and Political Fraud

Worthy Cover
In a spot of Islamist bother, turning to a worthy like Shahid Raza Naeemi may seem eminently sensible. The head imam of the Islamic Centre of Leicester can provide credible cover, surely.
Here he is with the Queen and the former Archbishop of Canterbury, graciously received at Lambeth Palace in 2012 as an “interfaith [...]

Darkness at Noor

How much trouble can one find in a single mosque?
Plenty when we’re talking about the Noor mosque in Acton, west London. Its name is Arabic for light but its stories are very dark indeed.
This week it was finally revealed to the public that the mosque’s former main man, Khalid Rashad, ordered the murder of Abdul [...]

UK Police now “stop and research”

Just look at these numbers from this Evening Standard report in which London Mayor Sadiq Khan announces dramatically that:
“London today is more diverse than ever and I am incredibly proud that we don’t just accept our differences, but celebrate them. There is simply no place in our capital for hate crimes of any form, and [...]

Abdul Qadir Jilani and Killing for Allah

Step by step, hate preaching in some Barelvi Muslim circles is being exposed.
Today a familiar name is in the news.
Police today launched a hate crime probe after literature saying those who insult Islam “must be killed” was allegedly handed out at a London mosque.
A Standard investigation has uncovered claims that the booklet, which says “any [...]

A Khatm-e-Nubuwwat message: “It is our mission to fight against these people”

How much hatred and incitement can one pack into just a few minutes?
Plenty if you preach for Khatm-e-Nubuwwat, the movement dedicated to persecution of Ahmadi Muslims.
Here is an example from the Khatm rally last Sunday at the Waltham Forest Islamic Association, a mosque which already had a bad record. Bradford imam Hamza Hassan Qadri [...]

Khatm-e-Nubuwwat: Shameless Fanatics

If any hate group should be proscribed, it is Khatm-e-Nubuwwat.
New Depths
Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh made just that call last Thursday in another statement against the movement dedicated to hatred of Ahmadi Muslims.
The spur was more disturbing news about Tanveer Ahmed. He is the man who murdered Ahmadi Muslim Asad Shah in Glasgow six months [...]

Meet the Friends of Corbynista Vicar Steven Saxby

Corbynista Steven Saxby is no one to lecture the rest of us about extremism. No one at all.
That won’t stop the Walthamstow vicar, of course. Here’s his latest screed. It’s a lazy and tawdry attempt to smear the opponents of Islamist extremism and attack Prevent policies. Even the terrorist groupies of [...]

Toaha Qureshi meets Auntie

Toaha Qureshi is not an accomplished spinner.
Listen if you like to the trustee of the mosque in Stockwell, south London, from 24 minutes into this BBC investigative report.
You will hear Mr Qureshi claim that the mosque’s connection to the anti-Ahmadi Pakistani group Khatm-e-Nubuwwat is limited to some “guidance” and “literature”. There is “no other [...]

The Waltham Forest Islamic Association: Conspiracy Theories, Antisemitism, and Rejection of the West

A Public Face
This is a public face of the Waltham Forest Islamic Association, also known as the Lea Bridge Road Mosque and the Jamia Masjid Ghousia. After the Paris atrocities, a condemnation.

The Other Face
Now step inside the mosque to see a very different face. Terrorism is actually “fabricated by governments” in order to [...]
