Law student jailed in UK for terror propaganda
London: A London court has sentenced a law student who posted Islamic terrorist propaganda on the Internet to five years in jail.
Judge David Paget said today Mohammed Gul was "thoroughly radicalised" and that the sentence must serve as a deterrent to others.
The 23-year-old was found guilty of five counts of distributing terrorist publications. The charges related to 30 videos posted online where Gul added jihadi songs to clips from al Qaeda, the Taliban and Iraqi media sites.
Gul told the court he did not support terrorism but acted out of curiosity and his political beliefs.
Scotland Yard took six months to review the data on Gul`s laptop. The investigation involved the most extensive data review done by the anti-terrorist branch of the police organisation.
