UK hate preacher demands Koran-bashing author’s trial under sharia courtSeptember 4th, 2009 - 5:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sep. 4 (ANI): British hate preacher Anjem Choudary has controversially demanded capital punishment for Koran-bashing author Sebastian Faulks if he is found guilty under sharia law.”Mr Faulks was extremely naive for what he said and it could have some grave consequence for him. Someone like this needs to be assessed in an Islamic court of law and if he’s found guilty then there would be capital punishment,” the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.
“Just as we chopping the hand off a thief and stoning the adulterer, we have for the one who insults the Prophet the death penalty,” he added.
Last week, Faulks had attracted Muslim community’s wrath by describing Koran as “the rantings of a schizophrenic” and “very disappointing from a literary point of view”.
Faulks, the author of James Bond novel Devil May Care, had said that the words of Prophet Mohammed were “one-dimensional”, and had criticised the Koran for not telling stories, like the Old Testament.
Although Faulks has apologised for calling Koran the “rantings of a schizophrenic,” Islam4UK a radical group associated with Choudary posted an article on its website entitled, “Sebastian Faulks on a Death Wish?”"May Allah punish the oppressors and deal with the slanderers,” it added.
Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: “Choudary and his followers are seeking to impose their will on the population of this country through subversion and incitement to violence. “The weakness of Choudary’s fascist ideology could not be better illustrated than by his inability to provide an intellectual response to criticism, instead resorting to veiled threats and intimidation.”However, Faulks declined to comment. His spokeswoman said: “He apologises if his comments about the Koran have offended Muslims.” ANI)
