Mr Choudary, a father of three, admitted he lived off benefits despite objecting to the British state. He rejected suggestions of hypocrisy, saying: “I don’t think it’s of any importance.”
A Muslim fundamentalist leader today told of his vision of Britain under Sharia law.
Anjem Choudary said he wanted the “flag of Allah” flying overÂ Downing Street, all women wearing burkas and caning for drunkenness.
He is the leader of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, founded as a successor to the banned fundamentalist sect al-Muhajiroun, which was led by now-exiled preacherÂ Omar Bakri Muhammad.
Mr Choudary, a 41-year-old lawyer, said he was proud to be reviled. “It’s inevitable that when you offer an alternative morality and way of life many people will hate you for it.”
He said this “alternative morality” would mean “a pure Islamic state with Sharia law in Britain” and added: “Every woman, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, would have to wear a traditional burka and cover everything apart from her face and hands in public.”
“In matters to do with the judicial system and the penal code, one male witness is sufficient to counter the testimony of two females. People who commit adultery would be stoned to death.”

PerhapsÂ these British patriotsÂ had some good effect and taught their elites a thing or two!Â
Now they ought to invite Wilders to speak at the House of Lords.
Robert Spencer said,Â “This redresses part of the howling injustice of barring freedom fighter Geert Wilders from Britain while allowing in a jihad leader.Â But barring them both only equates them. Now Britain needs to apologize to Wilders and invite him to address the British Parliament. I won’t be holding my breath…
