Scottish mosque figures’ links to banned group probed by police, by the BBC. Sabir Ali, head of religious events at Glasgow Central Mosque, and Hafiz Abdul Hamid, from the Polwarth Mosque in Edinburgh, are bring investigated by Police Scotland for links to Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP), a political party proscribed by the Home Office in 2001. The group’s armed off-shoot, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), have accepted responsibility for a deadly sectarian attacks against Shia Muslims and other religious minorities in Pakistan. An official UK government document says:
The aim of both SSP and LeJ is to transform Pakistan by violent means into a Sunni state under the total control of Sharia law. Another objective is to have all Shia declared Kafirs [non-believers] and to participate in the destruction of other religions, notably Judaism, Christianity and Hinduism.
No, we are the religion of peace, they say:
In a statement Glasgow Central Mosque said: “Islam is a faith of peace and we openly reject and condemn terrorism and extreme views of any kind.”
[Hamid said in 2004:] “This party will work for the political dominance of Islam.”
It’s just incredible that the West has done to itself. What on earth does Scotland need people like this for? Why from Pakistan, which is so culturally incompatible with the UK?
Maybe this is why: “Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser,” by Tom Whitehead in 2009:
The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”, according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.
He said Labour’s relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to “open up the UK to mass migration” but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its “core working class vote”. …
Critics said the revelations showed a “conspiracy” within Government to impose mass immigration for “cynical” political reasons.
