Hate preacher to confront UK home secretary
Abu Izzadeen, has vowed to publicly confront UK Home Secretary if she travels to Muslim areas.
London: Abu Izzadeen, a radical Muslim preacher in UK, has vowed to publicly confront British Home Secretary Theresa May if she travels to Muslim areas to promote the government’s counter-terrorism regulations.
The Islamist fanatic, who served a jail sentence for inciting hatred and raising funds for terrorism, hit the headlines in 2006 when he heckled former Home Secretary John Reid.
Days after May launched a fresh crackdown on home-grown terror, dubbed the ‘Prevent Strategy’, Izzadeen promised to challenge her “face to face” if she tries to stop the spread of radical Islam across the UK.
“If they are willing to put these issues on the table and discuss them I am more than ready,” The Daily Star quoted Izzadeen, as saying.
“I am quite sure Theresa May will not come off any better than John Reid. And if she thinks I am joking she is wrong,” said Izzadeen.
“Wherever she will be next I will be dressed in white so she will be able to recognize me,” he said.
“This is a re-hash of a failed policy,” Izzadeen added.
