Sadiq’s Dodgy Dossier Promoted Islamic Extremists

Sadiq Khan put his name to a report on radicalisation which promoted a string of Islamic extremists and hardline Islamist groups. Back in 2006, Labour’s mayoral candidate wrote the foreword for a dossier published by the Free Babar Ahmad campaign, which sought the release of the cyber-jihadi Taliban fan. The paper favourably quotes a number of known wrong-uns, including:

  • Jihadi John’s mates at CAGE
  • Moazzam Begg, who according to the US has “strong, long-term ties to terrorism — as a sympathizer, as a recruiter, as a financier and as a combatant”
  • Hizb ut-Tahrir – the radical, anti-Semitic Islamist group
  • Islamic Human Rights Commission – extreme group which organises the pro-Iran Al-Quds Day rallies

Sadiq doesn’t need Guido to tell him this looks bad, as he already has sussed that himself. He’s deleted a page on his website in which he proudly stated his involvement in the report. Handily Guido has an archived copy here.

“I have recently written a Foreword to a Report entitled A Counter-Productive Extradition Policy- The Effect of the Babar Ahmad Case in Radicalising Muslims in Britain by Khalida Yusuf. I forwarded a copy of this report to all Parliamentarians in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.”

Why was Sadiq sharing a report promoting Islamic extremists around parliament?
