Inciting Religious Hatred
Disclaimer: I don’t think anyone should ever be charged with something like “inciting religious hatred” — that’s just freedom of speech.
Do you think that a Muslim group could be charged with inciting hatred against Muslims for being so colossally stupid as to rally for the United Kingdom to adopt Sharia Law? That’s what the Islam4UK group is doing and other Muslims aren’t too happy about it. “Now Muslims Demand Full Sharia Law“
A spokesman for the Islamic Society of Britain said: “99.999 per cent of Muslims despise these people. This only serves to fuel racial tensions.”
How often do Tory and Conservative MPs agree on something? (Ummm… always? See comments.)
Conservative MP and ex-Army officer Patrick Mercer said: “It is extremely distasteful and is stoking the fires of fear within the British public. “If anyone thinks that those views are a step forward in society they are seriously deluded. They are repellent and repulsive.”
The group was also attacked by Tory MP Philip Davies who said: “This march is clearly a deliberate and provocative attempt to incite racial tension and disrupt community cohesion.
“The simple solution is for these people to move to a country which already has sharia law.”
