Muslim Imam Backs UKIP’s ‘Courageous’ Veil Ban, Slams ‘Liberal Pandering to Extremism’

A prominent British imam has backed UKIP’s “courageous” new policy to ban the Islamic face veil, saying “the major political parties do not have the foresight or fortitude to tackle this toxic gateway ideology”.

Dr. Taj Hargey, director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford, did not comment on other elements UKIP’s new “integration agenda”, but echoed the party’s arguments by insisting veiling was a “cultural” rather than spiritual practice “imported” from “backward places”.

    Note that he is accused of being a Qadiani. As far as I can see, this is an alternative term for an Ahmadi. From Wiki:

    Qadiani or Qadiyani (قادیانی qādiyānī in Urdu and Arabic) is a derogatory religious slur used by some South Asian Muslims to refer to Ahmadi Muslims, primarily in Pakistan.[1] The term originates from Qadian a small town in northern India, the birthplace of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of the Ahmadiyya movement. While it is pejorative to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, it is used in official Pakistani documents.[2]

    Sunni Muslims have been known to declare Ahmadis as heretics and to kill them. It is interesting that the British court has chosen to support his claim to be a bone fide Muslim. His life expectancy is not known.

    Slow jihad is ongoing and quite successful in Europe and Britain, whereas fast jihad disturbs the natives and could potentially allow them to discover the plan and possibly even stop this hijrah and eventual takeover.

      So true. Banning islam and muzzies altogether is the only solution.
