London, June 29 (ANI): Britain's controversial Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has converted an 11-year-old Christian schoolboy to Islam at a road show.

A film shows Sean, 11, vowing to follow the religion by repeating words in Arabic.

Sean, whose face is obscured by a coat hood and has been blacked out, is coached through the ceremony by hate preacher Choudary.

Standing next to him, he says: "This young man here wants to become a Muslim. This is not the first time a young man has discovered the truth. Come forward to think about Islam."

Choudary, a follower of exiled hate-preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, recites words for him to repeat.

The ceremony was filmed at a demonstration by Choudary's Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'ah group in Birmingham city centre earlier this month.

Choudary defended the boy's "reversion" to Islam.

"The boy told us he wanted to become a Muslim and, of course, some ­people are intellectually more mature than they are physically. I don't see there is any harm in this," he said.

Choudary, 42, was one of the masterminds behind sick protests at the homecoming parade of British soldiers from Afghanistan in Luton back in March.

He branded British troops "murderers."

The preacher also calls for fundamentalist Sharia law in Britain and warns of the dangers of eternal "hellfire" for non-Muslims. (ANI)
