UK Hate Preacher Demands Koran-Bashing Author’s Trial Under Sharia Court

I remember when the UK first announced that a handful of Sharia Courts had opened there. People across the Internet were saying that is was no big deal, that is was just like Beth Din, Jewish Courts. My argument was that Jews are not looking to impose religious laws on the UK and that Pandora's Box had been opened. That the sharia loving Muslims of the UK would keep on pushing until they get full Sharia Law implemented in these courts. The push just got stronger.

Hat tip to Lyn.

UK hate preacher demands Koran-bashing author’s trial under sharia court

London, Sep. 4 : British hate preacher Anjem Choudary has controversially demanded capital punishment for Koran-bashing author Sebastian Faulks if he is found guilty under sharia law.

“Mr Faulks was extremely naïve for what he said and it could have some grave consequence for him. Someone like this needs to be assessed in an Islamic court of law and if he’s found guilty then there would be capital punishment,” the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

“Just as we chopping the hand off a thief and stoning the adulterer, we have for the one who insults the Prophet the death penalty,” he added.

Last week, Faulks had attracted Muslim community’s wrath by describing Koran as “the rantings of a schizophrenic” and “very disappointing from a literary point of view”.

Faulks, the author of James Bond novel Devil May Care, had said that the words of Prophet Mohammed were "one-dimensional", and had criticised the Koran for not telling stories, like the Old Testament.

Although Faulks has apologised for calling Koran the “rantings of a schizophrenic,” Islam4UK a radical group associated with Choudary posted an article on its website entitled, “Sebastian Faulks on a Death Wish?”

“May Allah punish the oppressors and deal with the slanderers,” it added.

Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: “Choudary and his followers are seeking to impose their will on the population of this country through subversion and incitement to violence.

“The weakness of Choudary’s fascist ideology could not be better illustrated than by his inability to provide an intellectual response to criticism, instead resorting to veiled threats and intimidation.”

However, Faulks declined to comment. His spokeswoman said: “He apologises if his comments about the Koran have offended Muslims.” (ANI)

If leaders in the West retained even an ounce of common sense, these vile little creatures would be immediately expelled to the Islamic paradise of their choice. Islam is a stain on humanity and one of these days soon the bleach will have to be applied or we are finished as a civilization.

Common sense and guts are what is missing.

Choudary is a stupid loudmouth with about 20 followers that nobody takes seriously. He was last seen off by a gang of devout local Muslims when he turned up in Luton trying to whip up a demonstration against the armed forces. Other British Muslims hate him as he makes them look bad. Nothing he says should be given any attention whatsoever.

@KB Player....Meanwhile most other British Muslims sit silently as the UK slowly falls to Islam and more and more Sharia Courts are opened. So praising British Muslims is pretty ridiculous.

Not quite so ridiculous as thinking that a figure like Choudary who is regarded as a loon from all sides, represents anything except his own silly fantasies of being a jihad warrior.

And I don't praise "British muslims" as a block, I praise those who told Choudary to get lost as he was causing aggro and pissing everybody off.

@KB...funny but I do not seem to recall me saying that he has a massive following. You might want to face the reality that he is not the only one who wants a Sharia ruled UK.
So pointing out that some Muslims went against him, really adds up to nothing. They plan to have over 250 Sharia Courts there by the end of the year.
