The British version of the CBC is under fire after comparing Anjem Choudary to Gandhi.
According to The Daily Mail, the BBC's Home Affairs Editor, Mark Easton have the radical Imam airtime and afterwards said, “It's one thing to ban someone for inciting hatred or violence, but quite another to pass a law that silences anyone who challenges established values. I was in Parliament Square today - a statue of Gandhi looking down at me who was jailed for being extremist; Mandela who was jailed for being an extremist. History tells us that extreme views are sometimes needed to challenge very established values that people at the time hold so dear.”
Adam Deen of the Deen Institute – a Muslim debating forum - said that Choudary's views reject democracy.
“Anjem rejects democracy, is very anti non-Muslim and is very much anti-western. So to regard Anjem as a legitimate dissenting voice - and to open up this topic, saying that "maybe we've got it wrong to clamp down on his organisation" - is absurd,” he said.
Anjem Choudary has gone on record saying he wants the UK governed by Sharia Law.
Recently, on an episode of Hannity on Fox News, he told the anti-Islamic activist that she should be killed.
Here's a transcript courtesy of Gateway Pundit.
“We’re talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Mohammad… If you saw the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo drew you would understand the anger. And now this woman was to draw cartoons or have people draw cartoons to insult the prophet knowing full well that this carries the death penalty in Islam… She should be put before Shariah court and tried and of course she would face capitol punishment.”
