SNIPPET: "Tablighi Jamaat has come under the close observation of intelligence services in recent years over suspected links to terrorism, despite the groups insistence that it does not preach violence.
This week it emerged that the leader of the airline plot terrorist cell regularly attended a Tablighi Jamaat-controlled mosque in Walthamstow, northeast London.
"This looks like unacceptable favouritism by the Labour-run council towards this hostile and irresponsible group," said Mr Craig. "This is unacceptable, especially in the light of Tablighi Jamaat's clear links to other unlawful activities like Islamic terrorism."
Mr Craig has submitted a question for consideration at Newham Councils meeting on Monday in which he asks whether the Mayor will take enforcement action against Tablighi Jamaat in order to demonstrate that the Council expects all organisations and residents in the borough to act within and respect the law. "
ON THE INTERNET:
Surely this councilor will soon be getting a visit from the PC police, to explain to him how racist and xenophobic he is, and that any more outbursts will get him time in jail.
