UK jihadist Anjem Choudary explains how Islam will take over the UK

Anjem Choudary has been featured here many times. This good Muslim, who is also a lawyer, cannot be accused of misunderstanding his religion. In a country where Geert Wilders is banned, this animal openly  preaches the overthrow of the government and incites hatred and mass-murder. Chaudary is a free man, politicians like Gordon Brown, Jacqui Smith and Jack Straw try to ignore his existence.


The unholy past of the Muslim cleric demanding the Pope’s execution


Choudary: Refuses to discuss his dissolute youth

At 39, Anjem Choudary should be a symbol of success for his peers. Born into the working-class family of a market trader in Welling on the outskirts of London, he has risen – thanks to the opportunities offered by the British education system – to become a qualified lawyer.

But it is unlikely his old school will be inviting him to be guest speaker on prize-giving day. Their former pupil is not famous for his elegant oratory in court.

Instead, the articulate Mr Choudary preaches hatred and murder in the streets of Britain to the next generation of young, impressionable Muslims.

This week he stood outside Westminster Cathedral in central London to call for the execution of the Pope as punishment for ‘insulting Islam’. He fulminated against Pope Benedict XVl, adding: “Whoever insults the message of Mohammed is going to be subject to capital punishment.”

It’s a long way from his days as a medical student at Southampton University, where, friends say, he drank, indulged in casual sex, smoked cannabis and even took LSD. He called himself ‘Andy’ and was famed for his ability to drink a pint of cider in a few seconds.

One former acquaintance said: “At parties, like the rest of us, he was rarely without a joint. The morning after one party, I can remember him getting all the roaches (butts) from the spliffs we had smoked the night before out of the ashtrays, cutting them up and making a new one out of the leftovers.

“He would say he was a Muslim and was proud of his Pakistani heritage, but he did-n’t seem to attend any of the mosques in Southampton, and I only knew of him having white girlfriends. He certainly shared a bed with them.”

On one occasion, ‘Andy’ and a friend took LSD together. The friend said: “We took far too much and were hallucinating for 20 hours.”

The only sign of religious fervour came in flashes of anger over Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses. A friend from that time said: “You didn’t want to get him started on that. He would go on and on about the fatwa and he supported calls for the book to be banned. But he would have a glass of cider in his hand when he was carrying on about it.”

Choudary failed his first-year exams, switched from medicine to commercial law and did his final year as a law student at Guildford, from 1990 to 1991, before moving to London.

There his legal career stalled briefly and he filled in his time by teaching English as a foreign language in one of the many colleges off Oxford Street.

But eventually, he found a position with a firm of solicitors and began completing his qualifications to become a lawyer. His personal life blossomed too.

In 1996, aged 29, he married Rubana Akhtar and started a family. The couple, who settled in East London, have a daughter aged eight, and sons aged six and one.

Then he met the cleric Sheik Omar Bakri Mohammed at a mosque in Woolwich. Bakri, who is now banned from returning to Britain from Lebanon, had formed Al Muhajiroun, committed to the creation of a worldwide Islamic state, and Choudary quickly became a leading light in the group and its successor organisation, Al Ghurabaa.

He is no longer a practising solicitor and has left his wife and children to concentrate on his extreme brand of Islam. It was Choudary who organised the Danish Embassy protests over the cartoons of the prophet Mohammed earlier this year, at which demonstrators dressed as suicide bombers and banners proclaimed: ‘Behead Those Who Insult Islam’.

He lauded the September 11 hijackers as ‘magnificent martyrs’ and praised Asif Hanif, the British suicide bomber who killed three in Tel Aviv in 2003.

After the July 7 atrocities in London, he vowed he would not tell the police if he knew a terror attack was being planned and urged Muslims to defend themselves against perceived attacks by ‘whatever means they have at their disposal’.

His shocking pronouncements could be dismissed by some as the rantings of a mind clouded by religious fervour but Choudary has an audience and, at a time of increasing disaffection among young British Muslims, his activities are carefully monitored by Special Branch.

A security source said: “He is not seen as premier league because he is so conspicuous. He is seen as an irritant but with a potential to inspire impressionable youngsters to go that one stage further.”

Despite his hatred of all things British – he says: “If British means adopting British values, then I don’t think we can adopt British values. I’m a Muslim living in Britain. I have a British passport, but that’s a travel document to me” – he and his family live on state benefits.

Rubana is said by friends to claim £1,700 a month in housing benefit and income support while Choudary has also claimed £202 a month in income support.

Yesterday, Choudary declined to talk about his past dissolute life, dismissing it as ‘irrelevant’. He said: “I was born a Muslim and I have done my best to be a good Muslim all my life.”

And the drugs and alcohol? “That’s not really part of what’s happening in the world today. Anyway, it is all fabricated. It is complete nonsense.

“My personal family situation and background is irrelevant to the situation in which we live. I can talk about politics and Islam but I don’t want to talk about my personal life.”

He was too busy to answer any further questions. He now belongs to a sect he refuses to name and continues to deny any direct involvement in terrorism.

In a recent interview, he said: “Do I know how to make liquid explosives? No, I’m not military-trained. I can make an omelette.”

A flippant remark from one whose extremism is so laced with threats of violence

  1. How can this pratt be allowed to speak like this? He has to be committing an offense? Britain has let these people get out of control.

  2. He has, with certainty, committed several offences. In fact, this pig and its family are being subsidised by the british working public – the very people the pig (Choudary) has sworn to destroy. He exists, because to arrest and deport him, would require the morons in nu-labor to admit that their concept of an integrated society is wrong. I cringe when I see the police walk away from arresting these muslim thugs on the orders of their political masters.

    Does any reader have suitable stories of this muslim pig when it studied in the UK. I can recall muslim males trying to get women drunk so that the women could be raped more easily etc etc. Any such stories should be posted to the public, so that the slime ball that is A. Choudary is seen as such by all. He tries to use the media against the west – lets use it against him. But make sure that you can verify any story you send out, because like all muslim thugs he will try and sue.

  3. Send it home to Pakistan. Send it & it’s progeny & tilth home. This filth is the fruit of leftist PC deceneracy. A disgrace on the Uk.

  4. Hey UK you have gutless leaders! At least we here in the US have a Muslim leader! Can you imagine your grandson making speaches like Anjem Choudary, advocating the death of thousands or maybe millions of people because they don’t agree with him???? What a guy!!!
    Is there anything in your miserable lives worth dieing for???

  5. In the U.S. the First Amendment would grant this man the right to speak this way, but all over Europe, we see cases of people fined and imprisoned for uttering “hate speech” — prominently among them Geert Wilders and Brigitte Bardot. How is it possible that NO ONE in British government sees this as hate speech and acts to fine or imprison this man?

  6. Norme F Winne, dont judge the people in the UK from the example set by the dimwits in Whitehall – their time will soon be over. Then the muzzis will be thrown out or roasted – their choice. As for Obama – he may not be a muslim – we shall see what passes over the next year – but if he steps out of line then there are enough security nets to force him back into line or out.

  7. Just one more comment , boys in islamic schools are taught public speaking from a young age , thus they have no shortage of motor mouths like this..western young people need to be encouraged into public speaking clubs..maybe young British people are still articulate but others in other parts of the world tend to be shy and far less articulate.
    I would love to hear Wafa Sultan rip into this one.
    I was so angry when he described British culture as fish and others have said he doesn’t even pay for his fish and chips..a scrounger and a low life..

  8. There is certainly everything wrong in the UK that this person whom some other commentator in this site called “pig” and others like him who are also piga can get away with life on the dole with monies paid out from the ordinary working man and woman’s contributions to taxes and so forth. He and his bretheren should be sent back to Pakistan urgently so that they can try living on the diole there and making statements that irritate the Pakistani elite who control the fate and fortunes of Pakistan.

    This pig must be representative of the community from which he comes. His bosses back home in Pakistan assume that they are a leading Nation on this earth and interfere in the affairs of nealy every nation in the South of Asia.

    In reality it is a hotch potch of varioue tribes and races and the country will break asunder in the course of time because the ‘elements’ that make up a decent country are not in favour of the nation called Pakistan.

    Now they are tinkering in Sri Lanka tio dig the ‘balls’ of India from the South. India as usual would like Pakistan to continue to do so because those in the corridors of power need Pakistan to frighten the populace so that they can go on fleecing the country through the Arms merchants.

    Meantime it will do the UK some good to follow Italy for a change and thereafter send all these pigs and decendants back from where they and their forefathers came from. Their cousins are waiting with ‘open’ arms to receive them.

  9. ive been watching this muslims hate the west thing going on & on, & at first i thought the west is doomed, but over the past few years things have been slowley changing, helped along with islamic terrorist attacks on the west, failed terror plots against the west & the latest protest by muslims at luton against the returning british soldiers. & now more than 10 more new student paki terrorists being held in north england, add all this & more to the same situation throughout europe & now the europe wide rise of the right wing parties, its all gathering pace right now, when this situation explodes & i say explode in terms of mass riots turning into some thing like a euro civil war type explosion. well at this point i always seem to suddenly remember enoch powel`s speach (rivers of blood)
    any way, i have a question: not so much if, but more when things suddenly change up a gear where do you think it will start ?.
    things are changing but possible flash points ide say are, denmark/sweden/austria/holland/france/spain/itali/germany/uk/serbia/greace/norway there are more places & no shortage of muslims, how long can western governments keep the lid on this can of worms ???.
