A MUSLIM fundamentalist leader spoke this weekend of his vision of Britain under Sharia law.
Anjem Choudary said he wanted the “flag of Allah” flying over Downing Street, all women wearing burkhas and caning for drunkenness.
He is the leader of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, founded as a successor to the banned fundamentalist sect al-Muhajiroun, which was led by now-exiled preacher Omar Bakri Muhammad.
Choudary, 41, who fancies himself a “judge” in some pathetic outfit called the “Sharia Court of the UK” admitted his followers had organised protests against British soldiers in Luton, waving placards which called them “murderers” for their conduct in Iraq.
The Islamic whackjob said he was proud to be reviled:
It’s inevitable that when you offer an alternative morality and way of life many people will hate you for it.
His vision of an “alternative morality” would mean:
A pure Islamic state with Sharia law in Britain. Every woman, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, would have to wear a traditional burka and cover everything apart from her face and hands in public.
In matters to do with the judicial system and the penal code, one male witness is sufficient to counter the testimony of two females. People who commit adultery would be stoned to death.
Choudary, a father of three, admits he lives off benefits despite objecting to the British state. He rejected suggestions of hypocrisy, saying:
I don’t think it’s of any importance.
Choudary spoke out just a week after 600 demonstrators – many of them Muslims or former Muslims – sent a strong message to the Government that sharia was wholly unwelcome in the UK and other Western democracies.
The One Law for All demonstration was the first rallyÂ of its kind in London, and was organised to warn that shariaÂ posed a dangerous threat to community cohesion in the UK.
One speaker, National Secular Society President Terry Sanderson, denounced the policy of accommodation and appeasement of the political Islamic movement. He said:
We do not need another legal system running in parallel… sharia is creeping into our legal system and society and we must stop it in its tracks now!
Philosopher professor A C Grayling told the crowd:
Once you start fragmenting society, once you start allowing different groups in society to apply different standards, you get very profound injustices – and it is almost always women who suffer these injustices. We have to fight hard to keep one law for everybody.
