UK hate preacher wants Sharia law in Britain
London, Mar. 29 (ANI): Brushing aside the Scotland Yard probe into his inflammatory speeches, the controversial Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has warned that Britain would become a Sharia state soon.
"Let me tell you something - the Sharia will be implemented in Pakistan, it will be implemented in India and Bangladesh and even down the road in Downing Street. There is nothing to stop me calling for a Sharia state," the Sunday Express quoted Choudary, as telling his followers in London.
The London-born lawyer, who in his youth was a cider-drinking ladies' man, further said that Muslims around the world would rise and eventually conquer the White House.
Astonishingly, he compared himself to Noah from the Old Testament in one ranting outburst.
"People said 'look at that man building that boat in the mountain'. Now they say 'look at that lunatic calling for the Sharia in Britain' they say the same thing," he said in a voice rising with passion and vigor.
Choudary also included ex-US President Nixon in his rant.
"President Nixon once said if the Muslims in the Asian continent gathered together they would be a superpower. There are more than one billion in the Indian sub-continent ... if they woke up," he said.
Scotland Yard reportedly is investigating him for allegedly saying homosexuals should be stoned to death.
Choudary, however, denied the allegations.
"That allegation about stoning is not true and I am complaining to the Press Complaints Commission. It is all fabrication. If I was supporting terrorists, do you think I would be here, and I would have a beard," he said.
Tory MP and homeland security expert Patrick Mercer called for Scotland Yard to look at Choudary's latest speech too.
"His comments sound like sedition to me. The police should look very carefully at his words to see if he has broken the law.
Victims of the 7/7 bombing will, I am sure, be hugely upset by what sounds like sedition," he said. (ANI)
