Membership Of Islam4UK & al-Muhajiroun To Become Illegal
By Thursday 14th January 2010 it will be illegal to be a member of the group Islam4UK or its parent organisation, al-Muhajiroun.
Alan Johnson, the British Home Secretary, said that under new legislation it would be a criminal offence to glorify terrorism and be punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
“I have today laid an order which will proscribe al-Muhajiroun, Islam4UK, and a number of the other names the organisation goes by,” Johnson said. “It is already proscribed under two other names – al-Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect or the Saviour Sect.
Johnson said that proscription was “a tough but necessary power to tackle terrorism”, adding that it was “not a course we take lightly”.
The group, Islam4UK, has said that if their organisation is banned “another platform with a new name will arise to continue to fulfil these divine objections until the Sharia has been implemented”.
