Sadiq Khan donor gave £150,000 to hate cleric who said that every Muslim should be a terrorist

A British Muslim millionaire who donated thousands of pounds to Sadiq Khan’s mayoral campaign previously bankrolled a hate cleric whose TV channel described Jews as a ‘cursed race’ who brought the Holocaust upon themselves.

Farouq Sheikh, 59, donated £15,000 towards Mr Khan’s campaign last year and is said to be friends with the newly elected London Mayor. The pair were photographed together at the Asian Business Awards in London in March.

But Mr Sheikh also donated at least £150,000 over a three-year period to a charity founded by Dr Zakir Naik, an Indian cleric who has been banned from entering Britain since 2010 for saying ‘every Muslim should be a terrorist’.
