Britain moves to ban Muslim group

London, EnglandĀ  - A controversial Muslim group planning to stage an anti-war march through a town that receives British war dead will be banned in the UK from Thursday. British Home Secretary Alan Johnson prepared an order Tuesday proscribing Al-Muhajiroun, also known as Islam4UK.

The group's leader, controversial British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, had threatened to stage a march in the town of Wootton Bassett as a protest against the war in Afghanistan. The bodies of British war dead are traditionally brought to Wootton Bassett, near a Royal Air Force base, when they are returned to the country.

    Terrorist are succeeding as freedom of speech most tom tomed virtue of western democracy is being systematically being eithdrawn and being replaced by silly and draconian laws. So whether physically terrorism may recieve blows but slowly they re winning mind games which is clearly demonstrated in above action.

    I agree that they should not ask there followers to kill peaple but at the same time have the right to FREE SPEACH. So if we want freedom then what can we really do.

    American should move in this same direction and ban Muslim groups and Christian groups that encourage their faithful followers to bomb and murder those they perceive are their enemy's.

    The Christian churches that demanded and encouraged the deaths of abortion doctors and the bombing of the abortion clinics should be permanently banned and their property's seized.

    The Muslim churches that demand and encourage their faithful to commit violence upon non-Muslims should be permanently shut-down and their property's seized.

    Kudos to Britain for coming up with a partial solution to a ever growing problem for all western nations that have Muslim populations living within them.
