Britain’s most fanatical hate preacher is urging the Taliban to impose a stricter form of Islamic justice – including stoning adulterers, chopping off the hands of thieves and lashing anyone caught drinking alcohol.
Anjem Choudary, 54, who inspired a generation of jihadi fighters and dozens of terrorist murders, also wants to ban music and mixing between sexes, and says non-Muslims should pay an ‘infidel tax’.
His outpourings are included in an extraordinary 3,500-word treatise entitled Sincere Advice To The Leadership Of The Taliban.
In it, the firebrand cleric, from Ilford, East London, calls on Afghanistan’s new government – which has tried to project a more moderate image – to expunge all traces of Western culture and ban ‘useless pursuits such as music, drama and philosophy’.
