This British Judge Knew Muslims Better Than His Other
Countrymen/Europeans - Now Read His Sentence Awarded
To An Islamic Terrorist
Ahmed Hassan, who tried to blow up a packed tube train at Parsons Green in West London, was jailed today to life imprisonment, with a recommendation that he serve a minimum of 34 years. In his sentencing remarks, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave, made the following pertinent and astute observations:
“Finally, Ahmed Hassan, let me say this to you. You will have plenty of time to study the Qur’an in prison in the years to come. You should understand that the Qur’an is a book of peace; Islam is a religion of peace. The Qur’an and Islam forbid anything extreme, including extremism in religion. Islam forbids breaking the ‘law of the land’ where one is living or is a guest. Islam forbids terrorism (hiraba). The Qur’an and the Sunna provide that the crime of perpetrating terror to “cause corruption in the land” is one of the most severe crimes in Islam. So it is in the law of the United Kingdom. You have, therefore, received the most severe of sentences under the law of this land. You have violated the Qur’an and Islam by your actions, as well as the law of all civilized people. It is to be hoped that you will come to realise this one day.”
The AML unequivocally support and applaud the Learned Judge’s insightful and accurate analysis. The despicable act of planning to kill, injure and maim innocent civilians must not go unpunished. The disassociation of any and all acts of terror from the peaceful religion of Islam is vital in redressing the skewed misportrayal perpetrated on a daily basis and is crucial to building the trust lost within our communities.
