London Uni Islamic Society leader planned drive-by murder of soldiers, court told
A PHYSICS student accused of plotting drive-by shootings of servicemen used the murder of aid worker Alan Henning to justify his plans under Sharia law, a court heard.
Majeed is a former chairman of the King’s College Islamic Society. Why didn’t the benign, peaceful Islam that he presumably learned there help him withstand the allegedly twisted, hijacked version of Islam proffered by the Islamic State?
The plan is believed to have developed after Hassane, who was studying in Sudan, pledged his allegiance to ISIS in July 2014, with Majeed carrying out his orders in Britain.
Nathan Cuffy, 26, is accused of supplying a gun, while Nyall Hamlett, 25, is said to have been the middleman for the transfer of the weapon and ammunition.
Hassane, of Dalgarno Way, North Kensington has since pleaded guilty conspiracy to murder between July 8 2014 and September 25 2014 and preparation of terrorist acts between the July 8 2014 and the October 7 2014.
Majeed, of Church Street Estate, St John's Wood, Hamlett, of Great Western Road, Paddington and Cuffy, of Dartmouth Close, Notting Hill, deny conspiracy to murder between July 8 2014 and September 25 2014 and preparation of terrorist acts between the July 8 2014 and the October 7 2014.
