A MAN who runs a secondary school has been filmed saying all people who insult Islam should be put to death.

Mufti Shah Sadruddin, who is a rector at Al-Ashraaf Secondary School in Ilford, was captured making the hateful comments at a rally in 2013.

A documentary called Islam’s Non-Believers aired last night (October 13) featured Mr Sadruddin, who is a leading figure in the Jamaat-e-Ulama UK, or Council of Muslim Scholars in the UK.

Talking about a Bangladeshi blogger who died after he made jokes about Islam and called for Muslim war criminals to be executed, Mr Sadruddin called him a “traitor, shameless person and child of a hypocrite”.

He said: “Wake up.

“No son of a bastard will remain alive after swearing at my Prophet.”

The footage follows news this week of leaflets calling for the death of people who insult Islam being handed out at Dar-ul-Uloom Qadria Jilania mosque in Walthamstow.

As well as running the school in Hainault Street, the senior Muslim scholar also ran as a Conservative candidate in the Newham local elections of 2014.

The documentary claims he portrayed himself as a liberal, tolerant leader.

He said: “I believe in equality, fairness, love of the human race and I hate to hate anybody.”

A Conservative spokesman said he was no longer a member of the local party.

Al-Ashraaf School has been contacted for comment.
