London, January 12 (ANI): Prince Harry is feared to have become al-Qaida's top target following the emergence of a home video containing his "Paki" and "raghead" remarks against fellow comrades.

The soldier prince, who is training to pilot the meanest attack machine in the British Army, was said to have invited trouble as he called fellow Lt Ahmed Raza Khan "our little Paki friend".

The royal, apparently in a light-hearted manner, told another officer, who was wearing a camouflage veil off duty, "F*** me, you look like a raghead"- a nasty term to refer to an Arab.

It was alleged that Harry further went on to poke fun at the Queen as he enacted a mobile conversation while other cadets sat in the audience.

He had said: "Granny I''''ve got to go, got to go, send my love to the corgis and Grandpa. God save you ... yeah, that's great."

The 24-year-old also gagged about his pubic hair with one of the squad and dubbed most of the Army exercises as "pointless tasks" in the 2006 video diary published in the News of the World.

Clarence House had issued a statement apologising for Harry's behaviour, adding that "there is no question that he was in any way seeking to insult his friend".

The Daily Star has reported that Harry's foul-mouthed commentary has sparked fury from Muslim groups, who have been calling for the sacking of his Army career.

The Royal protection officials and the Ministry of Defence feared the third in line to the throne could face potential danger "if he is sent back to fight in Afghanistan, where Taliban militia slip over the border from neighbouring Pakistan."

Amid pressure from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, military chiefs launched an investigation into his language in the three-year-old video, which has been condemned by top politicians and anti-racist campaigners.

While Conservative leader David Cameron said the remarks were "completely unacceptable", Mohammed Shafiq, director of the Ramadan Foundation, one of the UK's top Muslim organisations, added Harry had upset many Asians.

He said: "Anybody who uses derogatory terms such as the 'P' word is obviously from a different age. He is trying to portray this image of being caring like his mother, or his father who's widely respected across the world. But he's a thug."

The Ministry of Defence is investigating the matter. (ANI)
