Banned UK cleric Bakri preaches hate online

London, Dec.13 (ANI): A militant Muslim cleric banned from living in this country is continuing to lecture to his followers in the UK twice a day from his home in Lebanon.
According to a Sky News report, Omar Bakri Mohammed delivers his sermons on the Internet chat room PalTalk.
Between 30 and 50 users log on every morning and evening to listen to what is usually a 30-minute speech. He then opens the discussion board up for questions, which he answers directly.
While monitoring this chat room Sky News heard Bakri tell his followers that no Muslim should join the Pakistan Army, but rather should support the Mujahideen - Muslims fighting a jihad, or Holy war.
He also told them it was “haraam” (or prohibited) to wish work colleagues “Merry Christmas”.
In other recent sermons Bakri called on his followers to “disobey British law” and to “fight and die for Islam”, in order to step up an Islamic state in the UK.
Syrian-born Bakri was banned from re-entering the UK in 2005, after his presence was deemed by the Government not to be “conducive to the public good”.
Authorities believe the 50-year-old founder of the now-outlawed radical group al-Muhajiroun is a direct threat to national security. (ANI)
