[Ed. – How lovely. Britain has become an exporter of Islamist hatred.]
One of the Sri Lankan suicide bombers was allegedly radicalised by hate preacher Anjem Choudary.
Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed, 37, was the link between Islamic State and the bombers, according to security services.
A security official told the BBC: ‘He was completely radicalised and supported the extremist ideology. I tried to reason with him.
‘When I asked him how he got into this… he said that he attended the sermons of the radical British preacher Anjem Choudary in London. He said he met him during the sermons.’
Choudary is considered one of the UK’s most notorious hate preachers.
The father of five spent three years of a five-and-a-half year sentence in prison after he was detained in 2016 under terror laws for his encouragement to Muslims to join Isis.
The Choudary-led extremist group al-Muhajiroun was outlawed by the Government following the 2005 7/7 attacks on London but it has continued to operate under a number of different images.
