Heart Surgeon Mohammed Asif Suspended For 2nd Time In 4 Years Accused Of Inappropriate Behaviour

Mohammed Asif  a heart surgeon has been suspended for second time in four years amid police probe into allegations of  inappropriate behaviour. This further backs up what i had previously said regarding the paedophile Muslim police detective. That however respectable a Muslim may seem on the outside, that scratch beneath the surface and you will find exactly the same woman hating, sex obsessed warped mindset as you would do in a Muslim takeaway worker or taxi driver who had been brain washed by Islam.

A heart surgeon was ­suspended from his job for the second time in four years amid claims of inappropriate behaviour.

Mohammed Asif, a ­consultant cardiothoracic ­surgeon at ­Glasgow’s Golden Jubilee National Hospital, was probed by police after an alleged incident at the hospital in February.


Asif, 48, who lives in an £850,000 house in Bearsden, near Glasgow, has worked at the hospital since 2011.

He was removed from his post pending an internal and criminal investigation.

But he was allowed to return to his job after police dropped their investigation due to a lack of ­evidence and health chiefs ­concluded their own inquiry.

In 2013, he was at the centre of separate allegations at Crosshouse Hospital, near Kilmarnock, about his ­conduct towards a colleague.

The woman did not ­complain about his behaviour but employees who allegedly witnessed it raised the issue with management.

He was also ­suspended from the Golden ­Jubilee ­following the alleged Crosshouse incident but was allowed to return within eight weeks.

Asif was educated at Oxford and Cambridge and has worked across the north of England.

Police said a complaint of inappropriate ­behaviour was received on ­February 9 about a Golden Jubilee staff member but no one had been reported to the fiscal after an investigation.

The Golden ­Jubilee, run by the Golden Jubilee Foundation, have a world-class centre which provides treatments such as cardiac bypass surgery and heart transplants. A hospital spokesman said a staff member was suspended ­following a complaint and an ­investigation launched.

He added: “This ­investigation has ­concluded and resulted in the individual ­returning to work.

“Although we cannot provide details around the investigation due to confidentiality issues, we can state that the ­complaint was not relating to any aspect of patient care at the Golden Jubilee.”

He added: “In 2013, a member of staff from the Golden Jubilee was suspended following a ­complaint. The investigation was ­concluded and resulted in the individual ­returning to work.”


NHS Ayrshire and Arran, who run ­Crosshouse, said: “While this ­individual visited to carry out clinics, they were never employed by NHS ­Ayrshire and Arran.

“Four years ago, we received a complaint and took appropriate and immediate action.”

Asif was not available at his home yesterday. His wife Shefali Chowdhury said: “I don’t know anything about this.”


CPS Drop Trumped Up Assault Charges Against Tommy Robinson Due To Lack Of Evidence

Trumped up assault charges against Tommy Robinson have now been dropped due to a lack of evidence. Which is no surprise really as there was none to start with. Just another state stitch up to try and silence any kind of opposition to the spread of Islam. Reading Tommy Robinson’s book ‘Enemy Of The State’ will leave you in no doubt as to the lengths the establishment will go to do this.


13:06Saturday 16 April 2016
The former leader of the English Defence League has had a court case against him dismissed.

It was announced on Thursday that charges against Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – better known as Tommy Robinson – of assault by beating were dropped and the case dismissed because of a lack of evidence.
Yaxley-Lennon, 33, of Bedfordshire, had been accused of assaulting a man at HMP Peterborough in July last year.

After the case he called it a “stitch up” and thanked people for their support.

Tommy Robinson In Court On Trumped Up Charges After Defending Himself Against Violent Muslim Prisoner

There was a time when i never believed in conspiracy theories or state persecution. Now i certainly do after witnessing the treatment of Tommy Robinson by British police in their witch hunt against him. Once again hauled before a court on trumped up assault charges after he defended himself against a Muslim inmate who was planning to throw boiling water and sugar in his face whilst held in HMP Peterborough. An incident that had been looked into after the event which he was informed that no further action would be taken. 

Then by pure coincidence just days after announcing his involvement with Pegida, Tommy Robinson is charged for the assault that happened months earlier whilst recalled to Prison that meant him missing an event at Oxford Union where he had planned on speaking about not only Islam but the police vendetta against him. Something he later did at a later date. The video is something of an eyeopener to say the least. Especially the states attempts to silence him and the disgusting treatment by police against his family.

Some further viewing that shows the states persecution against him:

The former leader of the anti-Muslim group the English Defence League has denied assaulting a man at HMP Peterborough.

Steven Yaxley-Lennon (33) from Bedfordshire, appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court today (Wednesday), where he entered a not guilty plea to one count of assault by beating.

The court was told the alleged assault happened at the prison on July 16 last year.
Yaxley-Lennon – also known as Tommy Robinson – spoke to confirm his name and age, but asked for his address not to be read out in court to prevent the media from knowing where he lives.

The court was told Yaxley-Lennon said he punched a man while inside the prison in self defence.

He was granted bail until his trial, which will take place at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on April 14.

Soft Sentence For Muslim Who Offered £1000 Bounty To Beheaded Mosque Robber

Ridiculously low sentence for Muslim extremist Mohammed Bashir from Oldham, Greater Manchester. Drugged up Bashir posted an advert on Gumtree offering £1000 to whoever beheaded the person responsible for robbing the mosque he attends. Posting a CCTV image of the robber. The magistrates strangely did not think that inciting murder was serious enough offence to send him to prison, preferring to sentence him to a lame 80 hours unpaid work. Another Muslim criminal who will be laughing his head off at Britain’s 2 tier justice system.

Spared jail: Dad who offered £1,000 reward for the beheading of a mosque raider while high on cannabis

Mohammed Bashir

A dad has escaped jail after offering a £1,000 reward for the BEHEADING of a man who raided a mosque.

Mohammed Bashir, 26, uploaded the vulgar advert after robbers targeted his place of worship. A court was told he was high on cannabis when he placed the ads in a ‘moment of madness’.

The day after the incident at the Jamia Masjid mosque in Werneth, Oldham on January 4 he wrote two posts on the advertising website Gumtree.

Titled “Reward Beheading” and “Werneth Reward” they contained a CCTV image of a suspect taken from the Mosque’s Facebook page and offered a £1,000 reward to behead them, a court was told.

Jamia Mosque in Werneth

They were spotted by a member of the public who took screenshots and reported them to police, Kerry Bell, prosecuting said.

Officers traced the posts back to Bashir and he admitted the offence after being arrested.

A court heard the posts raised fears of extremism within Oldham’s Muslim community – however Bashir’s lawyer insisted he was not a religious extremist, or a terrorist.

He told police in interview that he was high on cannabis when he wrote the posts and he removed them after just 15 minutes.

Nailia Akhtar, defending said dad-of-two Bashir had already experienced great trauma in his life after the death of his young daughter in March 2013. Eliza Bashir died after accidentally swallowing a battery.

She said: “He clearly didn’t think his actions through as he used his own Gumtree account and his own mobile phone meaning he was quite easy to trace. His actions have been condemned his wife, his family and the mosque.

“It’s had a negative impact on surrounding mosques as it highlights the extremism linked to Islam.

“It’s quite clear this man has no history of extremism and he doesn’t have any inclination of religious motivation.

Mohammed Bashir leaving Oldham Magistrates Court

“This has put his job in jeopardy and the safety of his family at risk.”

Bashir, of Monmouth Street, Oldham pleaded guilty to using a public communication network to send an offensive or menacing message at an earlier hearing.He was today ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work at Oldham Magistrates court.

He also has to pay £145 in costs.

Chairman of the bench Kathleen Kershaw said: “This was a serious offence, especially in the climate at the moment.

“We accept this was a moment of madness for which you have shown great remorse.”

After the incident the mosque posted on their Facebook page saying: “Please be careful with what you say on Facebook, Twitter etc. regarding what happened today/last night at the masjid about the robbery.

“Please don’t make threats about the person online as it could cause complications in the case.

“We are all outraged at this despicable crime but we must act with cool heads and wisdom.

“The last thing we want is one of our own getting in trouble for something they may have said in (justified) anger.”

Hate Preacher Who Inspired Lee Rigby Killers To Sue BBC For Being Called Extremist

Hardline imam Shakeel Begg, 37, is suing the BBC saying it described him as an 'extremist' 


KERCHING !!  Notorious hate preacher Shakeel Begg has seen £ signs in front of his eyes and is attempting to sue the BBC. Demanding libel damages and BBC don’t call him ‘extremist’  again. You couldn’t make this stuff up. A Muslim extremist getting upset at being called a Muslim extremist.

Shakeel Begg is the Salafist imam at Lewisham Islamic Centre in South-East London, the mosque where Lee Rigby’s murderers attended. Another mosque regular was Khadijah Dare who used the Twitter name Muhajirah fi Sham (meaning “immigrant in Syria”). She was radicalised here in the UK and ran off to join ISIS and marry a jihadist.  Making regular postings on social media calling for other British based Muslim women to join her in Syria. She recently caused controversy  posting pictures of her young son who she took to Syria with her holding a AK-47.

The Mail on Sunday reported : A hardline imam at a mosque where the killers of soldier Lee Rigby worshipped is suing the BBC, saying it described him as an ‘extremist’.Shakeel Begg, 37, is taking legal action after presenter Andrew Neil said on the Sunday Politics Show that the imam had praised jihad as ‘the greatest of deeds’.Mr Begg, head of the Lewisham Islamic Centre in South-East London, is demanding libel damages and that the BBC doesn’t again call him an ‘extremist’ who ‘encourages religious violence’.

According to the High Court writ, Mr Neil interviewed Farooq Murad, then head of the Muslim Council of Britain, during the Sunday Politics Show in November 2013.
Mr Neil said the East London Mosque in Whitechapel was ‘a venue for a number of extremist speakers…who espouse extremist positions’.

The presenter added: ‘This year Shakeel Begg, he spoke there and hailed jihad as the greatest of deeds.’ Mr Begg has said he cannot recall making such a speech at the East London Mosque. But in 2011 he told guests at a charity dinner elsewhere that ‘jihad in the path of Allah is one of the greatest deeds a Muslim can take part in’. Asked about that speech, he explained that by ‘jihad’ he had meant ‘spiritual struggle’.

Mr Begg did not deny Mr Rigby’s killers – Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22 – attended the Lewisham Islamic Centre in the months leading up to the Woolwich attack.
But he said the Centre had issued a statement expressing ‘shock and sadness’.A Centre spokesman said: ‘We and our imam work closely with various community groups, including the police.’
The BBC last night declined to comment.

Begg  has been regarded as an extremist since way before the Woolich murder of Lee Rigby. In 2006 he reportedly told students “You want to make jihad? Very good… take some money and go to Palestine and fight, fight the terrorists, fight the Zionists”.

Its not only non Muslims who consider him an extremist either. A Muslim website called Islam Against Extremism cites Shakeel Begg alongside the likes of Abu Hamza, Anjem Choudary and Abu Qatada in being responsible for the radicalization of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale. Their website states:

“As has come to light recently, Michael Adebolajo was influenced by Shakeel Begg in the latter’s verdicts of jihad in Syria, and is part of what led him to believe that unless you participate in jihad today you are sinful, and that jihad is fard al-ayn (an individual obligation). This is certainly the idea that is presented by extremists like Shakeel Begg

They also state Begg is very devious and manipulative in his ways of radicalising those he preaches to. Pushing the work and ideology of  Sayyid Qutb. An Islamist theologian who fused radical Safalist Islam with Marxism / Communism. Osama Bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki and Hasan al-Banna founder of the Muslim Brotherhood were all notable Qutbists. 

Shakeel Begg has something of a fetish for Muslim prisoners and not your petty crook sort either. High profile Muslim prisoners charged with terrorist offences. Some who have murdered in the name of Allah, others who are said to of been behind terrorist attacks.

The above video shows the hate preacher speaking at a rally outside Belmarsh prison in London he spoke of solidarity for his fellow Muslim brothers locked up unfairly in Belmarsh and around the world. Those prisoners held in Belmarsh prison at the time included hate preacher Abu Qatada who was deported on murder/terrorism charges. Hook handed Abu Hamza, recently sentenced to life imprisonment in the USA for terrorism. Babar Ahmed who protested his innocence whilst held in Belmarsh only to plead guilty at his terrorism trial in America.

Again in the video below is Shakeel Begg at a conference staged by Cageprisoners, the terrorist support group. Begg finds former Guantanamo inmates “inspiring” and worthy of a divine salute. 

“…[it is] inspiring to be amongst some of our brothers who madehijra [migration] in the path of Allah, who made jihad in the path of Allah, who suffered in the path of Allah, our brothers from Guantanamo Bay. May Allah have mercy upon them, may Allah accept all their good deeds and all their fasting especially in the month of Ramadan, and may Allah grant them jannah [paradise].”

Begg is a staunch supporter of jailed Pakistani scientist Dr Aafia Siddiqui nicknamed Lady al Qaeda. Siddiqui’s release was included in the demands of terrorists ISIS for a failed prisoner exchange for an American hostage. Shakeel Begg has spoke at fundraisers for the terrorist prisoner.

Shakeel Begg is one of Unite Against Fascism’s  favourite extremist guest speakers. He has been a regular at events run by the communist UAF over recent years. The UAF are more than happy to share the platform with Islamofascists.

The hate preacher has released a statement on his mosque website regarding the Mail’s article. Attempting to portray himself as the victim and likening the Daily Mail to Hitlers Nazi’s propaganda as he seized power in pre war Germany.


Muslim Gang From Rochdale Jailed For Large Credit Card Scam

Scams and frauds seem to be one of the few things that Muslims in the UK excel at. Unfortunately it is the rest of the country who suffer from their ill gotten gains when the losses are added to the  price everybody else has to pay

Gang jailed for £500,000 credit card scam

Published 14/01/2015 09:42:12

An organised crime group responsible for fraudulently ordering more than half-a-million pound worth of goods in a credit card scam have been jailed.

On 13 January 2015, eight members of this criminal network were sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court for their roles in the scam, which potentially involved more than 2,000 businesses across the country.

The investigation by Greater Manchester Police⿿s Fraud Investigation Team identified the gang fraudulently ordered more than £600,000 worth of goods from 57 companies across the UK.

However, officers believe this was just the tip of the iceberg as analysis of phone records suggests they contacted more than 2,000 potential victims and couriers and that the actual loss could be in excess of 2 million pounds.

Between June 2011 and November 2012, this gang contacted multiple businesses across the UK, ordering a variety of goods using stolen and compromised credit cards obtained from illegal online forums.

They then placed orders for hundreds of thousands of pounds on goods such as cabling, tiles, food, alcohol, fridges, cars, high-value metal and other wholesale goods.

The following offenders pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud:

Ammar Khalid (born 10/10/1987), of Elder Street, Rochdale, was sentenced to 4 years imprisonment

Irfan Khan (born 25/03/1988), of King Street South, Rochdale, was sentenced to 3 years 4 months imprisonment

Ahmed Sohail Pasha (born 15/12/1987), of Milkstone Road, Rochdale, was sentenced to 3 years 4 months imprisonment

Shazad Arshad (born 10/10/1994) of Anne Linne Close, Rochdale, was sentenced to 18 months in a Young Offenders Institute

Hamza Mughal (born 01/08/1988), of Surma Close, Rochdale, was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment

Faraz Malik (born 04/10/1986) of Bosworth Street, Rochdale, was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment

The following offenders pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods:

Aqeel Malik (born 26/11/1986) of Bertha Road, Rochdale, was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months, 200 hours unpaid work and a 9 month supervision order.

Mohammed Sohail Khan (born 12/08/1988) of Queens Road, Oldham, was convicted of handling stolen goods and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months, 200 hours unpaid work and a 9 month supervision order.

Two other defendents, Usman Shafa and Christopher Goodhew are to be sentenced on 2 February 2015 for handling stolen goods.

The gang adopted aliases and contacted businesses, using the stolen credit card details to pay for the goods over the phone. Initially there were no concerns as the payments were successfully processed using remote payment machines. Subsequently the goods were delivered to a variety of locations across Rochdale.

Private couriers were met by the gang, the goods were unloaded and shortly afterwards collected by pre-arranged buyers.

Several weeks later, the companies discovered they had been defrauded and the true account holders, whose details had been stolen, reported the unusual transactions to their banks. As a result, the funds were taken from the company’s accounts leaving them at a loss.

The Fraud Investigation Unit’s inquiries began in November 2011 when police responded to a report of suspicious activity on Grandidge Street, Rochdale, where officers found Faraz Malik and his cousin Aqeel Malik unloading a quantity of stolen steel.

As the investigation progressed, officers also seized quantities of dog food, fridges and alcohol which had all been bought using compromised details.

Officers also recovered phone records and text messages between the gang which showed an exchange of card details, aliases and potential targets. At the home of Shazad Arshad, officers found an embossing handle used to print card numbers onto counterfeit cards, counterfeit cards were found at the homes of Ahmed Sohail Pasha, Ammar Khalid and Faraz Malik and software to write card details onto the magnetic strips of credit cards was found on a laptop in Irfan Khan’s bedroom.

Detective Sergeant Phil Larratt, of GMP’s Fraud Investigation Team, said: “This gang were involved in a concerted, full-time operation to defraud companies out of thousands of pounds worth of goods.

“It is clear from the sheer scale of the evidence we recovered that these men thought they had an unearthed a goldmine and had no intention of slowing down or stopping. I have no doubt they⿿d still be trying to con businesses out of thousands of pounds today had we not caught them.

“This was this gang’s full-time occupation. The group operated as a business with a clear hierarchy and structure. Ammar Khalid, Irfan Khan and Ahmed Sohail Pasha directed operations from the comfort of their own homes, accessing the dark web and placing orders using the compromised card details.

“In times of austerity, these businesses lost tens of thousands of pounds thanks to the underhand tactics of this gang and potentially could have faced financial ruin.

“However, thanks to the work and dedication of the officers from the Fraud Investigation Unit we were able to unravel their web of deception and they have now been exposed so that no other businesses can be targeted by this gang. We carried out a painstaking investigation involving meticulous examination of financial and phone records and I am delighted all that work has paid off.

“We know there may be other similar scams being operated here in Greater Manchester and across the country so I would urge anyone who thinks they may have fallen victim to contact Action Fraud ( Greater Manchester Police are determined to disrupt and prosecute the perpetrators of this type of serious and organised criminality. Anyone found guilty of committing these types of fraud, as this gang have found out to their cost, can expect a stint in prison.”

Muslims Take Note, You Could Learn A Lot From These Sikhs In Worcester

Muslims take note, you could learn a lot from the Sikhs who have turned the pub they own into a Christmas haven, true interfaith relations.

Despite originating in the same sub continent as many of the Muslims in the UK. Their attitude and loyalties couldn’t be more different. The Sikhs make no demands, don’t play the victim, are law-abiding and non violent, expect no special privileges, integrate well into society adapting where need be, hard workers who pay taxes instead of benefit scrounging, uphold the traditions of the country they are in whilst maintaining their own identity, do not wish to convert and take over, are proud to be called British.


Sikh owners transform pub into Christmas haven to spread solidarity message between all faiths

The Sikh owners of a Worcester pub are hoping to spread the message of solidarity throughout the festive period, and have turned it into a Christmas haven.

The Vine Inn, in Ombersley Road, is filled with hanging decorations, colourful lights and sports a huge, beautiful Christmas tree decorated with crystals, baubles and all the other traditional trimmings, to bring people of all faiths together in harmony.
Manager of the pub Shibu Singh Sandhu, 31, who runs it with his brother Jimmy, has even been welcoming people to the pub dressed in traditional Sikh wear.

The brother’s father Tim Sandhu, of Birmingham who owns the pub, said: “We took the decision to do this as we always celebrate Christmas, but this year we wanted to celebrate it in a big way.

“I bought the tree and cut it down, but it took four of us get it in here. My daughter-in laws have done a wonderful job decorating it.

“People have been coming in and taking pictures on their phone and customers seem delighted with it, which is great. It must be one of the biggest trees in Worcester.

“Sikhism teaches us to respect other faiths, and we wanted to show harmony between us and all other religions.

“We live in a Christian country, so it’s important we embrace the culture. There has been a relationship between Christians and Sikhs for a long time now, so we wanted to embrace that even more.

“In these present times, with the terrible things that are happening all around the world, and as it’s Christmas, there’s never been a better time to show solidarity and respect between all faiths.”

Tim Sandhu, a retired university lecturer, bought the pub five months ago and a £120,000 refurbishment project is well underway.

He says once the refurbishment has been completed, it will sport a traditional look and “homely feel”.

A Real Islamic Reformer Calls For Burka To Be Banned In The UK

In British society there should be no place for the burka. Yet walk down the main road in Tower Hamlets, Birmingham, Bolton, Bradford, Dewsbury or any other town with a large number of Muslims and you will see them everywhere. At a time when we are constantly having do gooders telling us how integration and community cohesion are so important. Yet those same do gooders are the first to defend Muslim women wearing face coverings despite the fact they only have a negative effect on integration, alienating the wearer even more.

I like many non Muslims find the burka highly offensive and intimidating.  Not many people would see a burka clad woman as approachable should they be lost and needing directions or some other kind of help.

Burkas also pose a major security risk as nobody can be certain who is underneath the garment and it impossible to distinguish  between wearers. Yet while motorcycle helmets, ski masks and balaclavas are barred from banks and most supermarkets, burkas are still acceptable. 

Well this one wasn’t to be expected……. A Muslim leader campaigning to ban the burka.  That’s right, Oxford Imam Dr Taj Hargey has repeated the call by many Brits for the anti social burka to be banned in public. The big difference here is that when critics of Islam and patriots make the same call. Muslims and their far left defenders are quick to denounce it, branding those who made the comments islamophobic, racist, fascist, Nazis or something similar. This results in the burka ban calls being quickly dismissed. In Dr Hargey’s case with him being a Muslim, that is not an option. No doubt Islamists and the far left will attempt to smear him in another way.

Forget all your Mehdi Hasan, Mo Ansar, Fiyaz Mughal and Yvonne Ridleys of this world who are constantly on our TV screens being portrayed as moderate Muslims. They are not moderate Muslims, they are Muslim apologists. They don’t wish to change Islam to be compatible with today’s Britain. They want Britain to do the changing to fall in line with Islam.

Real Muslim moderates and reformers are few and far between. Dr Taj Hargey is one of those rare types.


Why I, as a Muslim, am launching a campaign to ban the burka in Britain

  • Dr Taj Hargey is the Imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation and the Director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford


The increasing fashion for young Muslim women in Britain to wear the burka (in contrast to their mothers, who do not) is one of most sinister developments of our times.

Supporters of this garment like to pretend that it is a welcome symbol of our society’s multicultural diversity and philosophical tolerance. But such warped thinking is woefully misguided. In reality, the burka is an archaic tribal piece of cloth that is eagerly used by fundamentalist zealots to promote a toxic brand of extremist non-Koranic theology.

Everyone in Britain, including Muslims, should oppose the insidious spread of this vile piece of clothing, which imprisons women, threatens social harmony, fuels distrust, has grave health implications and is a potent security risk.

Dr Taj Hargey is launching a nationwide campaign to impose a ban on face masks, including burkas, in public spaces in Britain

Dr Taj Hargey is launching a nationwide campaign to impose a ban on face masks, including burkas, in public spaces in Britain


Contrary to the claims of its advocates, it has nothing to do with Islam but is a cultural fad imported from Saudi Arabia and primitive parts of the Islamic world.

That is why this week, with the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford, I am launching a nationwide campaign to impose a ban on face masks in public spaces in Britain.

Such a nationwide prohibition would deal with all types of covering, including balaclavas, but there would be no exemption for the burka/niqab on any spurious, politically correct grounds of religious conscience.

One of the key purposes of this initiative is to persuade at least 100,000 people to sign a formal petition calling for the ban, thereby obliging Parliament to debate the issue.

Despite growing concern from the British public, our pusillanimous politicians have refused to address the burgeoning prevalence of the burka in our midst, as they fear accusations of Islamophobia from the militant fundamentalists and their PC allies.

There is no religious requirement on Muslims to don the burka, and no evidence in the Koran to support the wearing of the garment

There is no religious requirement on Muslims to don the burka, and no evidence in the Koran to support the wearing of the garment


Well, it is time to put the needs of British society before the manufactured grievances of the hardliners, whose aim is to replace our liberal democracy with a totalitarian theocracy, the burka serving as a weapon in this far-reaching cultural war.

In rejecting the ideology of the zealots, mainstream Muslims should be at the forefront of the campaign for a ban, not least because the burka so badly undermines the credibility and reputation of our faith.

There have, of course, been previous petitions and calls to outlaw face masks in public, but all came from the political Right and gained little traction.

This campaign is different. It is the first one led by Muslims, speaking for the moderate majority whose voice has been unheeded up to now. We invite both Muslims and our other fellow citizens to work together to rid Britain of this alien cultural monstrosity.

A key part of the impetus for this move came from the decision of the European Court of Human Rights this month to uphold the ban instituted by the French Government in 2010 on all face coverings in public. Supported by lawyers from Birmingham, a 24-year-old French woman of Pakistani origin took her well-funded case to the ECHR, claiming that the ban was a violation of her  — and note the sequence —  religious, cultural and personal rights.

On every level, this questionable appeal relied on distortions and untruths. Thankfully her case was thrown out, but her arguments illustrate the chronic weakness of any suggestion that we must allow the burka to be worn in public.

First, there is no religious requirement on Muslims to don the burka; second, the burka is not a feature of Pakistani culture, where 90 per cent of women do not wear it; third, there is no unqualified human right to wear whatever we want in public. In every developed society, personal freedoms have to take account of wider social mores.

The French ban has proved to be legally sound as well as sensible. I have long believed that the same measure should be introduced here in the UK to prevent community separatism and social apartheid. And, like the ECHR, I see no basis for the pretence that there is any religious sanction for the burka.

The wearing of the face mask is a custom originating in ancient Persia and Byzantium, more than 1,000 years before the birth of Islam. It was upheld by male aristocrats because of social snobbery rather than religion, since they did not want their womenfolk — wives, daughters, sisters or mothers — to be seen by the peasantry.

Dr Taj Hargey on why he opposes the wearing of burkas

According to Dr Hargey, everyone in Britain, including Muslims, should oppose the insidious spread of the burka, which he says imprisons women, threatens social harmony, fuels distrust, has grave health implications and is a potent security risk

Nor is there any evidence in the Koran to support the wearing of the burka. Indeed, the Holy Book stipulates that men ‘should lower their gaze’ when meeting women to avoid lecherous staring (verse 24, chapter 30). So logically, if women were fully covered up there would be no need for such an instruction.

Some Muslim clergy claim that the burka is religiously necessary. They assert this because the Prophet Muhammad’s wives allegedly hid their faces in public.

These puritanical clerics do not base their theological misrepresentations on the Koran but on the subsidiary and suspect hadith (a collection of books containing the reputed sayings of Muhammad, written 250 years after his death).

‘It is forbidden for Muslim women going on pilgrimages to Mecca to cover their faces. So if such a pre-Islamic practice is banned in Islam’s holiest site, why on earth would it be required on the streets of Britain?’

In any case, this is a wilful misreading of scripture. In fact, verse 32 of chapter 33 in the Koran explicitly states that ‘the Prophet’s wives are not like other women’. So  there is no reason to emulate them.

Just as revealingly, it is forbidden for Muslim women going on pilgrimages to Mecca to cover their faces. So if such a pre-Islamic practice is banned in Islam’s holiest site, why on earth would it be required on the streets of Britain?

The truth is that there is no theological foundation for these separatist face masks, as most non-fundamentalists recognise. Only recently, Al-Azhar, the leading institution of Muslim theology in the Islamic world, declared that the burka has no spiritual authenticity.

Theology apart, there are many other compelling arguments against the burka. It badly undermines social cohesion by inhibiting effective interaction between Muslims and non-Muslims in the public realm. There can be no meaningful exchange with people if you cannot even see their faces.

Moreover, the burka is an affront to the concept of gender parity in the UK.

If I tried to wear a ski-mask on a bus or at a bank, I would quickly be told to remove the item or leave, or be arrested. Why should the same rules not apply to Muslim women?

Dr Hargey's proposals for a nationwide prohibition would deal with all types of facial covering, including balaclavas

The demand for equal rights has always been central to the feminist cause, and in this case feminists should be calling for men and women to be treated equally. Either everyone has the right to mask their face or no one has.

There are  huge implications for security, after several cases of terrorists and criminals using the burka to evade detection — a particularly worrying development given the explicit, bloody threats of militant extremists. In our troubled world, there can be no absolute right to anonymity in public.

‘We cannot continue to accept the creeping Arabisation of Islam in the UK and consequent destruction of our cherished British freedoms. A stand must be made now’

Another concern is  the health risks, for full coverings mean a distinct lack of exposure to sunshine. One recent study of 203 burka-clad women in the United Arab Emirates revealed that all but four were deficient in Vitamin D.

If that can happen in a land of blazing heat, how much worse will be the problems in often damp, dark Britain? Our society is already seeing rises in rickets and other bone-related diseases for the first time since World War II.

Supporters of the burka talk about freedom of choice — yet it is not women who are being given that freedom, but men who are imposing their will. That is not empowerment but imprisonment.

The burka is just another weapon in the jihadist arsenal of misogyny, like forced marriage, female genital mutilation and sexist discrimination. It should have no part in British society, where women are supposed to be treated as equal citizens. By tolerating it, we are allowing a form of gender apartheid to grow in our midst.

All of us, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, have a duty to challenge the religious hardliners who have cynically exploited British traditions of tolerance and individual liberty to pursue their own twisted sectarian agenda imported wholesale from the Arab Middle East.

A start could be made by forcing our politicians to debate the issue by gathering sufficient signatures for our historic anti-burka petition.

We cannot continue to accept the creeping Arabisation of Islam in the UK and consequent destruction of our cherished British freedoms. A stand must be made now.

‘Taqqiya Artist’ Fiyaz Mughal Whines About Losing Court Case

Tell Mama’s “mendacious grievance-mongering taqqiya artist” Fiyaz Mughal has been whining to the press after Tim Burton being acquitted of of racially aggravated harassment over a tweet aimed at Mughal.  For once common sense prevailed over the stupidity of political correctness and trumped up charges. Mughal has used his TellMama platform as a money making scheme receiving over £750,000 of taxpayers money and as a way to silence any critics of Islam.

Mughul and his friends at West Midlands police tried and failed to outlaw using the word taqiyya and make any negative opinion of Muslims such as calling  one a scumbag made a hate crime.  Hilariously Fiyaz Mughal is still trying to portray himself as the victim. Its laughable that he provided evidence via video link claiming he feared for his safety by attending in person!

Get a grip Fiyaz Mughal, you were not a rape victim nor testifying against a gangster. It was a tweet, man up and stop the lying and sympathy seeking…..its getting boring  now.

Radio host cleared over ‘scumbag’ tweet jibe to Musilm campaigner

Presenter Tim Burton is acquitted of racially aggravated harassment over tweet to Muslim campaigner

Tim Burton

A radio presenter has been cleared of racially aggravated harassment charges over a tweet he posted about a decorated Muslim campaigner.

Tim Burton, from the newly formed far right political party Liberty GB, accused Fiyaz Mughal OBE of being a “mendacious grievance-mongering taqqiya artist”.

In Islam Taqqiya is a form of religious dispensation allowing a Muslim to commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.

Mr Burton, aged 61, also called Mr Mughal a “scumbag”.

Mr Burton uploaded his insults following claims that Mr Mughal, who runs Tell Mama UK which monitors anti-Muslim attacks, had exaggerated such attacks after the death of drummer Lee Rigby.

Mr Burton, a computer consultant, was cleared of the charges at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court.

He said: “This was an historic decision. I have no regrets.

“I consider this organisation (Tell Mama) was publicly funded on false premises. The tweets were rude and sarcastic, but I do think this was a victory for free speech.”

The day long trial heard evidence from Dutch scholar Hans Jansen, a taqiyya expert.

But Mr Mughal, aged 42, who gave evidence during the trial by video link, said: “A green light has been given for this man to use this terminology in the future.

“A Muslim scumbag was what I was called, and the court has effectively allowed that. What does that say to Muslims in Birmingham?”

Mr Burton stressed: “I am not racist, absolutely not. Islam is not a race. I am not Islamophobic. Phobia is an irrational fear of something.”

The trial judge decided Mr Burton had a right to free expression and felt the tweets did not constitute harassment.

He did, however, urge Mr Burton to consider moderating his language in future.

It’s a ruling that has angered Mr Mughal. He added: “This man is an ideologue in relation to his thinking about Muslims. This was a very important case because it was based on anti-Muslim rhetoric.

“No one should be targeted like this – that is all I’m saying. We should get on with each other.”

The Liberty GB mission statement reveals what the party believes to be the “most important issues of our time” – namely “mass immigration from the Third World, the steady rise of fundamentalist Islam and the hijacking of traditional British culture and institutions by well-organised left-wing progressives”.

One of their candidates for the European elections was arrested last week after making a speech quoting from a book written by Winston Churchill in 1899 about Islam.

Police detained Paul Weston, chairman, on suspicion of religious or racial harassment last weekend after a member of the public complained. He was released on bail.

The government did not renew its grant to Tell Mama after the group failed to identify that much of a rise in Islamophobic incidents reported to it following the death of Lee Rigby referred to activity that took place only online.

Mr Mughal was targeted by hardline Muslims earlier this month after he invited gay rights champion Peter Tatchell to be a patron of Tell Mama.
