This weekend, the Daily Mail launched an editorial on the extradition order for Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin.
In 1971, Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, whilst as a leader and organiser of the “Al Badr Death Squads”, abducted, tortured and murdered a number of Bangladeshi intellectuals and patriots, who were seeking self-determination and independence for Bangladesh. Following the defeat of Pakistan, Mueen-Uddin fled to Britain, where he has established himself as the pillar of the Bangladeshi British Muslim establishment, and the prime mover in Jamaat-e-Islam’s various front organisations in Britain.
Here are some excerpts from the Daily Mail report which we copy here, in case Mueen-Uddin’s lawyers, Carter Ruck, force the article to be removed to “protect the reputation” of their client.
One of Britain’s most important Muslim leaders – who has a senior role in the NHS – is to be charged with 18 murders by a war crimes tribunal in his native Bangladesh, investigators have told The Mail on Sunday.
An honest and thoughtful explanation of the results of a great deal of soul-searching by one ex-Muslim.
This is a brief unscripted video summarizing the reasons why i left Islam and became an atheist. The last part of the video got cut off because my video editing software was not working properly. My upcoming video will be criticisms of Islam. Subscribe to my channel for more criticisms of religion.
Two weeks ago, on a freezing cold Saturday afternoon, I made my way to the Old Palace Yard in Westminster to support the Freedom of Expression rally organised by One Law For All.
The rally followed several incidents in London recently where freedom of expression was curtailed in favour of fear of causing offence. In one incident, a talk on sharia law by One Law for All’s Anne Marie Waters was cancelled following threats of violence. Rhys Morgan was told by his school to remove a picture of Jesus and Mo from his Facebook page – a picture he had used in solidarity with the University College London Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society who had been asked by their student union to remove the same image. Both UCL and the London School of Economics have since passed draconian motions which will further restrict religious criticism or satire at their schools.
The lynchpin of the group was Mohammed Chowdhury, a 21-year-old from east London, who pleaded guilty at Woolwich crown court on Wednesday to preparing to commit an act of terrorism.
He and eight other young men from London, Cardiff and Stoke on Trent were due to face trial this week, but in a last-minute change of plea they admitted the terror plot, but denied the intention was to cause death or injury.
Undercover detectives had followed Chowdhury and his right-hand man, Shah Rahman, observing Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament on 28 November 2010, during a massive surveillance operation which eventually led to the arrest of the terror gang.
There should be no ambiguity about their intentions and how they have been radicalised. Anwar al-Awlaki and Inspire magazine are all namechecked:
Salman Rushdie was banned from attending the Jaipur Literary Festival. After even his video address to the Festival was cancelled, here is in an exclusive interview to NDTV’s Barkha Dutt. Rushdie says he is coming to India and the politicians will just have to learn to deal with it.
In a U.S. Department of Defense memorandum released by WikiLeaks, I have uncovered another, especially devastating source who spoke out against Mr. Aamer in Guantanamo. “UK558″ described Mr. Aamer as a “recruiter” for al Qaeda. He outlined how Mr. Aamer and he traveled to meet members of a European al Qaeda cell in 2000, and how Mr. Aamer fought in Bosnia under the leadership of Abu Zubayr al-Haili, a senior al-Qaeda figure. “UK558″ talked of the training in AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades Mr. Aamer received.
Men in blouses behaving badly? Who would have thought such a thing? Take a look at these wankers.
A debate on Islam in Amsterdam with the Canadian Irshad Manji, author of the book ‘The Islamic Dilemma’, and the parliamentarians of the Green Left Party Tofik Dibi, was disrupted on Wednesday evening by a group of radical Muslims.
The Islamists threatened and spat at Manji. Tofik Dibi accompanied Ms Manji to the police station where she filled a report. He said that “the failure of the debate shows that it is necessary also in the Netherlands to continue the debate on a free and moderate Islam.”
Finally, the police were called to remove the protesters. A police spokesman said later that two of the 22 men involved were arrested, one for threats and another for insulting the police.
If you are a Muslim and you don’t believe stoning should be a part of Islam, you have already taken the first step towards rejecting form where it implies condoning and participation in an inhumane and barbaric “Traditional” punishment. You have partially apostated yourself. You might have become a worse Muslim but you have become a better human being.
The Ridiculous Islamic Fatwa ™ industry is the gift that keeps on giving. Here is the latest: “Islamic cleric bans women from touching bananas, cucumbers for sexual resemblance”.
It’s another example of some sex-obsessed cleric making a religious edict based on his own personal preoccupations and, hey presto!, it’s religious law! That’s sharia for you.
CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.”
The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve.
He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make them think of sex.”
