Jailed UK cleric moved to isolation after refuses to stop preaching hate: report

Notorious UK Islamist cleric Anjem Choudary has been moved into isolation at a high-security jail after he failed to stop preaching his extremist views despite warnings from prison authorities, the Sunday Times reports.

Choudary is reportedly the first known Islamist to be moved to the specially-created unit at HMP Frankland, however the Ministry of Justice has refused to identify the prisoners held in the unit.Choudary was jailed for five-and-a-half years in September 2016 for encouraging support for the Islamic State militant group.

He and co-defendant Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 33, used a series of talks posted on YouTube to invite backing for the group, and pledged their allegiance to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

    I see prison has really brought the gay out in him.

    Of course he is preaching hate. He is an imam preaching about Islam which is all about hate, violence and subjugation.

    So they put him in isolation so he can’t preach to other jailed jihadis…and then they’ll release him so he can preach to everybody. OK.

    There are special faces in this world, that just cry out for the swift application of a stout length hickory… repeatedly.

    By the looks of the eye shadow, the cheek rouge and lipstick I’d say this clown needs tossing off a high building.

    Let’s hope its an isolation so profound he suicides.

    Just lobotomize him and be done with it.

    Ya know, if Hera’s to fall from a high place, like the roof, I wouldn’t ask any questions or raise any concerns.
    Just saying.

    If Choudary is not teaching the true islam, then surely a knowledgeable imam would be able to be brought in to quickly disabuse all his fellow religionists of the false teachings of Choudary? Then easily teach how islam is actually a Religion Of Peace™ , Tolerance, and respect for all religions, cultures and sexes instead of the one Choudary is preaching.

    Yeah, isn’t going to happen, is it?
