Inayat Bunglawala is the driving force behind a new campaign group called ‘Muslims4UK‘, which is ‘United against al-Muhajiroun, EDL and the Daily Express’. Muslims4UK was set up to counter a planned demonstration by ‘Islam For The UK’ (or ‘Islam4UK’), an Anjem Choudary al-Muhajiroun front.
Bunglawala didn’t need to set up this ‘campaign’, as British Muslims for Secular Democracy had already organised a counter-protest, but of course BMSD are genuine Muslim moderates, whereas Bunglawala is a member of the fake moderate Muslim Council of Britain.
In the event, Choudary’s gang pulled out of their planned ‘march’. Bunglawala followed suit, but BMSD went ahead anyway and you can enjoy some photographs here.
Coming back to Bunglawala’s Muslims4UK, looking at the group’s website we find a Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) banner placed prominently on the left hand side of the page, along with three text links, one of which goes to the website of far-left nutter and useful idiot for Islamism, Bob Pitt. Pitt’s site I can understand, given his brown nosing the MCB, but MPAC? Now that’s another story.
MPAC is, without a shadow of a doubt, an extremist organisation, as I pointed out here, when I looked at ‘Labour Friends of Palestine & The Middle East’ and its extremist connections.
MPAC has written of ‘the true nature of Muslim violence’ and justified turning to ‘violent ends’ in a statement which announces:
We will no longer be part of the deliberate attempt to keep the public confused on the issue of terrorism. We will not be part of the apologetic Muslim leaders who blame their own community for terrorism. We will not condemn, nor allow ourselves to be condemned by governing elites who are more interested in a political stunt than saving lives. No more politics and propaganda when it comes terrorism – its [sic] the truth and nothing else.
In December 2008, Asghar Bukhari, co-founder and spokesperson for MPAC was revealed to have written that ‘any Muslim who fights against Israel and dies is a martyr and will be granted paradise’, that ‘Zionists’ ‘murder little children for sport’, and that ‘Jihad is a beautiful thing’. In addition, Bukhari has donated money to the Holocaust denier David Irving.
So what the hell is the supposedly ‘moderate’ Bunglawala doing linking to MPAC on his website?
Well, here’s the disclaimer beneath the links:
Please note all these organisations are supporting the campaign but have no relationship whatsoever with Muslims4UK
The exaggeration of referring to ‘all these organisations’ aside, what a pathetic excuse for linking to MPAC. What if the BNP were supporting the campaign – would Muslims4UK link to their site as well?
When clicked, the MPAC banner in question takes you to a post entitled ‘I did something really kool today’. This post, written by ‘a 16 year old East London Sister’, tells readers of how she ripped down some Islam4UK posters.
MPAC, you see, doesn’t like Choudary and his vanity organisation. He’s simply too extreme, too embarassing, too ‘unsophisticated’ for these ‘moderate’ apologists for Jihadism.
The comments beneath the article are interesting. Now, comments on a website don’t necessarily reflect the opinion of those running the site, but it’s still interesting to see a marked lack of support for the sister’s ‘kool’ action among the MPAC crew.
Ripping up posters is ‘pathetic’ says one commenter, accusing the ‘sister’ of ‘acting like a spoilt brat’.
The next commenter states that ‘for the record i do not support Al-Muhajiroon or any of these groups who like to shout alot on the streets’, but…
MAKES ME SICK YOU HAVE THE CHEEK TO REMOVE POSTERS REGARDING PROMOTING SHARIA INSTEAD OF POSTERS THAT HAVE “SCANTILY CLAD WOMEN” IN THEM???
WHERES YOU ISLAM NOW?
ARTICLE qutoe” hate these crazy muslims who chat so much rubbish!” do you know anything about Islam to challenge other view point because it seems to me that infact you are the one talking rubbish
From then on the comments descend into claims that Israel ‘kills babies to sell the organs’ and that Choudary is an MI5 agent.
Hardly a hotbed of support for ‘moderate’ Muslim opposition to al-Muhajiroun, then, even of Bunglawala variety, yet he’s happy to link to MPAC nonetheless.
Bunglawala’s ‘anti-extremist’ drive managed to drum up support largely from extremists: Bob Pitt, an extreme left-winger, and MPAC, an organisation which refuses to condemn Jihadists and whose spokesman actively promotes them.
Moderate? Pull the other one!
