In June 2013, then Home Secretary Teressa May blocked two of the worlds leading counter-jihad activists, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller from entering the UK. The pair had been due to speak at an English Defence League rally in the aftermath of the savage murder of Lee Rigby by barbaric Muslim extremists. Despite neither having a history of participating or promoting any kind of violence, and Robert Spencer being an expert on Islam and author of many books on the subject of Islamization including a NY Times best seller.
Home Secretary Theresa May informed Spencer and Geller that their presence in the UK would “not be conducive to the public good”. The reality of the situation was the government gave in to pressure from two publicly funded anti racism
cashcows groups who had been heavily campaigning online to try to get the counter-jihad activists barred from entering the UK.One being the Muslim sympathy seekers from TellMama, at a time when Fiyaz Mughals taqiyya had yet to be rumbled and he had managed to twist the negative Muslim attention after Woolwich onto the EDL . Portraying Muslims as the victims.
The second group who went all out campaigning and collected a 28,000 signature petition to block Spencer and Gellers were Hope not Hate. A far-left extremist group bank rolled by the Department for Communities and Local Government and Unite the union. It is run by a communist Nick Lowles along with serial fantasist Matthew Collins, a former neo nazi granny beater who switched sides after his former nazi friends found out that he was a police informer and were baying for his blood. Collins is now well paid by HnH to falsely smear people who simply object to the threat of Islam and speak their minds about it as racists and nazis. Matthew Collins is a fraud and a very dangerous one at that. Not one to let the truth get in the way of his story telling, Collins will happily put people s safety at risk by manufacturing fake evidence to make his lies and false look genuine.
Fast forward a little over 3 years and countless acts of Islamic terrorism later to present day. When two Islamic hate preachers from Pakistan, who openly support terrorism to further Islam decide to come to the UK and embark on a tour of mosques which began in July and will run to early September. Where they will spew their warped Islamic beliefs to already hot-headed and volatile Muslims, inciting and agitating them even more . Then you would expect those honourable chaps from TellMama and Hope not Hate who made such a song and dance about Spencer and Gellers planned visit. To have at least made the same kind of stand against these two vile hate preachers.
But no……The silence is deadly ……….Then again there is no money to be made making a stand against Islamists unlike the money-making machine of the islamophobia industry

CONTROVERSIAL Pakistani clerics who praised an Islamist assassin in Pakistan were allowed to speak at a mosque in Oldham last week.
Muhammad Naqib ur Rehman and Hassan Haseeb ur Rehman spoke to a large gathering at Madina Mosque and Islamic Centre in Clydesdale Street, Coppice, last Thursday and Friday as part of their seven-week UK tour, Sacred Journey, which runs until September 4.
After Oldham they went on to speak at mosques in Rochdale and Rotherham
The clerics led a high-profile campaign in Pakistan in praise of Mumtaz Qadri, who was executed in January after murdering Pakistani politician Salman Taseer in 2011 for opposing Pakistan’s strict blasphemy laws.
Qadri had claimed it was his religious duty to kill the Punjab governor.

In a social media post after Qadri’s execution, Haseeb ur Rehman said: “Every person who loves Islam and Prophet is in grief for the martyrdom of Mumtaz Qadri.”
Several videos on YouTube showed the clerics urging people to attend Qadri’s funeral, which they also attended in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
They repeatedly referred to Qadri as “shaheed” (martyr).
Between 15,000 and 100,000 people attended Qadri’s funeral, shrieking slogans such as “Qadri, your blood will bring the revolution” and “The punishment for a blasphemer is beheading”.
Fierce riots ensued in Pakistan after Qadri’s execution.
Last month, after arriving in the UK, Muhammad Naqib ur Rehman was welcomed at Lambeth Palace by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
The pair discussed subjects including countering “the narrative of extremism and terrorism” and interfaith relations.
Shahbaz Taseer, whose father was murdered by Qadri, criticised British authorities for allowing the clerics into the country.
He told a newspaper: “These people teach murder and hate. For me personally I find it sad that a country like England would allow cowards like these men in.
“It’s countries like the UK and the US that claim they are leading the way in the war against terror [and] setting a standard. Why are they allowing people [in] that give fuel to the fire they are fighting against?”
The Home Secretary has the power to ban people from the UK if their presence is deemed to not be “conducive to the public good.”
Former Home Secretary and now Prime Minister Theresa May used these powers to ban US bloggers Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller from entering the country, as well as controversial Islamist preacher Zakir Naik.
Geller and Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamisation of America.
The Chronicle spoke to imam Zahoor Chishti, from Madina Mosque and Islamic Centre in Coppice.
He said the event was not organised by the mosque itself but by the clerics’ team. He said he did not know who approved the decision for the pair to speak at the mosque.
Speaking about the two clerics, imam Chishti said: “They have got hundreds of thousands of followers in the UK.
“Several followers and disciples of theirs contact people and ask if they could use their venues.
“If they are approved it’s got nothing to do with the imam or preachers here.
“I was at the event for a short while, just to show my face.
“It looks very bad in the community if the imam is not there.”
When asked if he was aware of the clerics’ comments about Qadri, he added: “On a personal level I didn’t know what they believe.
“When I found out I was upset. I think it was really upsetting and wrong.
“They come to the UK every year and give messages of love, so that’s why they’re booked on that basis.
“I think this will change how things are organised at the mosque. They should take better precautionary measures.”
