So… Muslims Against Crusades have been banned as of midnight. For people not aware of the context, this isn’t new. Anjem Choudhary’s two previous reincarnations of the same sect – Al-Muhajiroun and Islam4UK – were also banned in the past.
As Jeromy Taylor points out:
RE Muslims Against Crusades. Since 2001, 31 people have been charged with proscription offences. 15 have been convicted.
The ban isn’t surprising. What is surprising is that they decided to cancel their protest tomorrow. After all, Anjem Choudhary and his motley crew are used to just turning up under a different name.
But it is also the case that they hate their publicity stunts being neutralised. The last time British Muslims for Secular Democracy openly called for a counter-protest, Anjem Choudhary and his lot decided not to turn up at the last minute. This time too, they’ve decided to call it off.
If you’re reading guys – don’t worry we’ll be there every time you try and hold one of your stunts.
