“UK mosque welcomes preachers who support Islamist assassin linked to case of Christian mum Asia Bibi,”
A CONTROVERSIAL mosque praised by local cops has hosted two preachers who support an Islamist assassin linked to the Christian Asia Bibi blasphemy case.
The Jamia Islamia Ghousia Trust in Luton invited the radical preachers to speak at its centre over the last month.
They are Muhammad Ramzan Sialvi, from Pakistan, who spoke at Luton’s central mosque last week and had been previously pictured kissing the corpse of Pakistani assassin Mumtaz Qadri in 2016.
Another, Hamid Saeed Kazmi, also attended Qadri’s funeral and has called for Ms Bibi to be re-jailed because authorities “cannot compromise on any slights made against the prophet”.
Qadri, an elite police commander, murdered a politician in 2011 over his support of Christian mum Ms Bibi, 53, who was sentenced to death in Pakistan on blasphemy charges.
Last month we reported how Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have blocked a bid by Cabinet ministers including Home Secretary Sajid Javid to offer Ms Bibi asylum in the UK.
Reports have also emerged of mullahs in Pakistan hunting Ms Bibi and her family door-to-door forcing them into hiding.
The Roman Catholic from Punjab in Pakistan had been sentenced to death in 2010 after she was accused of insulting the Prophet Mohammed – which she denies – with the conviction overturned in October….
Pakistani politician Salmaan Taseer had spoken for reforming blasphemy laws in light of Ms Bibi’s case before he was shot 28 times by Qadri, one of his personal bodyguard, in 2011.
Qadri was arrested and convicted over the assassination before he was hanged in 2016.
But a host of radical clerics praised the killer as a martyr including several invited to the Jamia Islamia mosque in central Luton, Beds.
Preacher Sialvi described it as a “privilege to be able to kiss” Qadri’s body at his funeral and that it had been “a memorable moment in my life” to send off the “honourable gentleman”.
Last month the Luton mosque billed him in an advert as a “special guest” and a “great scholar” attending an afternoon prayer session.
And three weeks ago another radical cleric Mr Kazmi – who supported assassin Qadri and has attacked the release of Ms Bibi – was invited as part of a group of speakers to a conference at the mosque in Luton….
