“The mega-mosque is proposed and planned by a particularly disturbing Islamic sect called Tablighi Jamaat. They teach that if you want to be a good Muslim you must separate off from non-Muslims. It is only Tablighi Jamaat, of all the Islamic groups, that has created ghettos over in Toronto, in Canada. They are all around the world, this is a huge group and wherever they go they create barriers, hostility, division, they create separatism. In my view we would be mad, barking mad, if we let the project go ahead.”
More on the TJ: Tablighi Jamaat – An Indirect Line to Terrorism
“The Tablighi Jamaat (TJ) name has come up before in connection with terrorism plots, including the October 2002 Portland Seven and the September 2002 Lackawanna Six cases in the United States, as well as the August 2006 plot to bomb airliners en route from London to the United States, the July 7, 2005, London Underground bombings and the July 2007 attempted bombings in London and Glasgow, Scotland. Over the past several years we also have received several queries about TJ from U.S. law enforcement officials who are concerned about the group’s presence and activities in the United States.
This, then, is a good time to correct some of the erroneous information regarding TJ — and attempt to paint a realistic portrait of the very real threat posed by some of the people affiliated with TJ.”
