British “Anti-Terror” imam arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of murder

THE imam of a Bradford mosque has been arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of carrying out a murder committed nearly 14 years ago.

Syed Sibtain Kazmi, 57, who lives in Bradford, was held by Pakistani police this morning, reportedly after he attempted to fly home from Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad.

His arrest is understood to relate to the murder of Maulana Azam Tariq, the chief of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba group, in 2003.

Kazmi, a Shia Muslim, leads worship at the Anjuman e Haideria mosque, a former children’s hospital in St Mary’s Road, Manningham.

    Britain will immediately issue a visa for another Pakistani imam of the same stamp.

    No doubt the Shiites will hit the fan over this.
