London: The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on Friday is a “legitimate target” for a terrorist attack because of Britain’s foreign policy and the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, a radical Islamic group has claimed.
“There is a legitimate Islam opinion that those who have been attacked have the right to retaliate,” The Telegraph quoted Assad Ullah, a Muslims Against Crusades leader, as saying.
“British foreign policy is causing this kind of feeling and increasing the instability in this country. We do not advocate violence, but can see how they made themselves a legitimate target for others,” he added.
The group has also urged Muslims to stay away from central London and to avoid all means of public transport due to the heightened risk of an attack.
“We urge all Muslims to stay away from the royal wedding, not only because of the drinking, drug taking and sexual promiscuity but because of the likelihood of an attack by the Mujahideen,” a spokesman for the group said.
“We urge all Muslims to stay away from public places and all public transport, trains, buses and tubes around central London,” he added.
