But it’s a good thing that the British Home Secretary banned Robert Spencer and me from speaking against such savagery. Now the country is free to hear from devout Muslims like Mizanur Rahman.
Islamic extremist warns there will be more Lee Rigby-style killings on the streets of BritainOct 02, 2014, By Euan Stretch, The Mirror
British-born Mizanur Rahman claims the Home Secretary is ‘playing with fire’ by announcing plans to crackdown on Muslim extremists
An Islamic extremist has warned there will be more Lee Rigby-style atrocities on the streets of the UK if the government passes new laws to clampdown on Muslim activists.
British-born Mizanur Rahman, 31, accused Home Secretary Theresa May of ‘playing with fire’ by planning to introduce new ‘anti-social behavour orders’ for Muslim extremists.
Last month Ms May announced she was drawing up new counter-terrorism measures to prevent young muslims in the UK being radicalised and joining groups like the Islamic State (IS).
But Mr Rahman said moves to silence activists could encourage terror acts in the UK like the murder of soldier Lee Rigby by Islamic converts Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale last year.
Mr Rahman, jailed for four years in 2007 for encouraging the murder of American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, gave the chilling warning in an interview with internet radio station FUBAR.
He said: “Theresa May is playing with fire because the fact is people like me who are willing to speak out regardless of the consequences are few.
“Other people will look to me and say they don’t want their house to be raided and to have a voice they will have to use other means.
“Rather they will take their own actions, like Michael Adebolajo, for example.
“The British police are saying that kind of attack is likely to happen again, and the threat level keeps rising.
“It certainly looks like it is going that way, and things like this announcement doesn’t help, it makes things worse.”
Mr Rahman insisted that neither he or nor his fellow jihadists were committing crimes in the UK or belonged to any banned organisations.
He was was among nine British Muslims including radical preacher Anjem Choudary arrested on suspicion of encouraging terrorism during a series of dawn raids last Thursday.
The men were all released on bail without charge 24 hours later.
Mr Rahman added: “We have always operated within the law, much to the frustration of the Home Secretary and the police.
“The idea of prison doesn’t scare me. I know plenty of people there and can catch up with some of my pals.”
He claimed the raids, which came just hours before MPs voted to allow British airstrikes in Iraq, was politically motivated.

Soldier Lee Rigby, 25, of The Royal Fusiliers, was run over and then hacked to death in Woolwich, south east London, on May 22 last year.
Adebolajo, 29, and Adebowale, 23, claimed they murdered him to avenge the deaths of muslims killed by British soldiers.
They are both serving life sentences.
