Radical Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary is supporting 'remain' because certain principles within European legislation prevent the prosecution of Islamists from happening.
Choudary is currently facing charges of supporting ISIS, and his associate, Abu Rumaysah recently traveled to Syria. He is thought to be the 'new Jihadi John'.
He told Breitbart that “I think Britain will be worse off” if it left the EU.
He added that leaving, “is something that is probably not in our advantage from a Muslim perspective.”
When asked if the European Court’s stance on Islamist extremism is more “desirable” than the British government's he said “that it probably is” and “There are certain principles and caveats [within EU legislation] that should prevent that [prosecution of Islamists] happening.”
However, he won't be voting in the referendum.
“When one takes a vote one is legislating one way or another, and we don’t believe that legislation is for human beings to make. As Muslims, we just implement the divine laws, not decide what they should be,” he said.
