Man arrested over ’44 ways to support jihad’ booklet loses West Midlands Police damages action

A man who was arrested after he asked for a booklet called “44 ways to support Jihad” to be printed has lost his High Court damages action against the police.

Gas engineer Muhammad Z Khan, who lived with his parents Ashraf and Bibi in Wellingborough at the time in January 2014, sued the chief constables of West Midlands and Northamptonshire Police.

Dismissing his case in London on Tuesday, Sir David Eady said that Khan had gone to a printing firm in the town in December 2013 and asked for 50 copies of the work by Anwar Al-Awlaki to be printed and bound.
