Imam’s alleged killer tells court Isis ideology is ‘absolutely wrong’
“…He said he did not agree with Uddin’s use of taweez – a form of Islamic healing using amulets that contain a verse from the Qur’an – because it was “dangerous” to meddle with the “supernatural world”.
Syeedy said he wanted to get Uddin deported to Bangladesh and hold a seminar to warn Rochdale’s Muslim community about the dangers of taweez and “black magic”.
In August last year, the jury heard, Syeedy’s younger brother found a book on taweez belonging to Uddin in the Jalalia Jameh mosque where they prayed.
Syeedy, who dropped out of an electrical engineering course at Huddersfield University, said he watched as his friends “ripped up” Uddin’s book and put it in a bowl of water and threw it in a nearby stream.
He told jurors that the book was “quite dangerous because when people are involved in taweez they’re involved in the supernatural world and it’s easy to cause harm.
“By ripping it up and putting it in water it would basically destroy what’s in there, kind of spells.”
