DOOM preacher Anjem Choudary has warned of a Bosnian-style bloodbath after admitting plans for a new extremist group called "Democracy Is Dead".
The cleric forecast that a government ban on his group Islam4UK would stoke hostility between Muslims and white Britons.
He claimed there could be a repeat, on our own streets, of the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica in which Serbs slaughtered 8,000 Bosnian men and boys.
But, despite mounting tensions surrounding his views, he admitted that he is already re-branding outlawed Islam 4UK under the provocative new banner. He said he planned to “launch a new organisation under the title Democracy is dead, adding: “You will have to wait and see.”
Speaking exclusively to a national paper, East London-based Choudary, 42, said: “The Government’s decision to ban Islam4UK is a very dangerous one as it will only increase the potential for some very nasty conflict."
“You only have to look at what happened between Bosnia and Serbia at Srebrenica. There could be a bloodbath on the streets."
“I don’t think the British people want that but, when you start to suppress ideological movements, you push them underground and there is more chance of conflict.'
“The Government has created a tinderbox situation by banning us. We were the ones calming things down
Islam4UK was banned by Home Secretary Alan Johnson after uproar over Choudary’s plans to hold a protest march in the Wiltshire village of Wootton Bassett where the public salute the bodies of soldiers brought back from Afghanistan. But ex-lawyer Choudary was unrepentant, claiming that white Britons do not understand the strength of feeling of the Muslim population.
He said: “In some cities, one in six of the young people are Muslim. People don’t realise that there are actually four to five million Muslims in the UK. Many of them do not register to vote so the Government’s figures do not reflect the true size of the Muslim population.
“The Government says there are around one million Muslims in the UK but that is nowhere near accurate. Of course, most will remain silent and not complain but a few could be driven to take the law into their own hands."
“It’s a very dangerous situation. You have to consider how, if there is another 7/7, the country would cope.
More and more disaffected whites would be driven towards far-right extremist groups such as the British National Party and National Front if there was another attack." Firstly I have said before that he would reinvent himself and his group and he has done so.
Secondly surely he is inciting violence which is against the law when he makes these claims and suggestions of extremist religious violence against the indigenous population. Why has he not been called in to answer why has not sought work more importantly why has he and his group not been deported?
