London, Aug.20 : The grandfather of Britain's youngest terrorist is a leading figure in the fight against extremism.

Teen fanatic Hammaad Munshi faces up to ten years in jail after he was convicted of being part of an al-Qaeda cell aged just 16, but his 72-year-old grandfather Sheikh Yakub Munshi preaches about "living in peace".

According to The Sun, Munshi was part of a Muslim delegation, which travelled to NATO's Brussels headquarters to discuss terrorism and the problems in Iraq in 2005.

The cleric was yesterday said to be "bewildered and shocked" over his grandson's conviction.
