Preachers of separatism at work inside Britain’s mosques

Britain’s leading Muslim bodies say they are fighting extremism. In one of our most respected mosques, Sara Hassan came face to face with hardline female preachers of separatism. Here, she reports on the shocking results of her investigation

In a large balcony above the beautiful main hall at Regent’s Park Mosque in London - widely considered the most important mosque in Britain - I am filming undercover as the woman preacher gives her talk.

What should be done to a Muslim who converts to another faith? “We kill him,” she says, “kill him, kill, kill…You have to kill him, you understand?”

Adulterers, she says, are to be stoned to death - and as for homosexuals, and women who “make themselves like a man, a woman like a man … the punishment is kill, kill them, throw them from the highest place”.

These punishments, the preacher says, are to be implemented in a future Islamic state. “This is not to tell you to start killing people,” she continues. “There must be a Muslim leader, when the Muslim army becomes stronger, when Islam has grown enough.”

A young female student from the group interrupts her: the punishment should also be to stone the homosexuals to death, once they have been thrown from a high place.

		 			 				Disgusting. How much more Islamic intolerance will the public accept in the name of tolerance?

they surely did not learn hatred and violence from Islamic books…Islam is so clear and so loving that these ladies are surely undercover kuffar…

Radical Islam is a cancer that is destroying Europe. The enemy is within our ranks and they are infiltrating our communities. Islamic militants are recruiting British born Muslims from peaceful and progressive Mosques. They are taking over!

The problem is that the radical militants are not easily recognised. A high proportion of them were born and raised in this country and they are somewhat assimilated into our communities; they live in our streets, attend our schools, and work in our shops. They are not a “foreign” problem; many of these terrorists are homegrown!

Many young British Muslims have become radicalised through the Internet. They are able to read extremist literature and watch militant programming on their computers. The local Mosques cannot stop the radicalization process because they are unable to police the Internet. It doesn’t matter if they ban a radical preacher because another will soon step forward to take his place.

I don’t think there many peaceful means to combat Islamic radicalism. The only sure way to prevent terrorism is through harsher legislation and greater police freedom. We must fight fire with fire. The radical Imams must be punished! If possible, the government should ban all access to Islamic websites which promote extremism. The government should censure and ban all militant Islamic anti-western literature. We should imprison the preachers of hate and terrorism. They shouldn’t be given the freedom to incite hatred and separatism! The Islamic community should be encouraged to assimilate and develop a westernized, democratic version of Islam. Something must be done, before it is too late.
