Al-Ghurabaa’s new guises

In the Sunday Times, Abul Taher has some information on Al-Ghurabaa’s activities.

TWO Muslim extremist groups banned after last year’s July 7 bombings have re-formed under a new name, writes Abul Taher.

Al Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect, splinter groups of the disbanded Al-Muhajiroun, now operate as Followers of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah.

The group runs most of its activities through an internet forum, where one of the main contributors is Anjem Choudhury, the former British head of Al-Muhajiroun, who uses the pseudonym Abou Luqman. He often gives his mobile phone numbers to other members.

New users are allowed onto the website only if they are introduced by a member. A reporter who infiltrated the site found calls for violent holy war, declarations that the Queen is an enemy and recordings from Osama Bin Laden; Ayman al-Zawahiri, his deputy; and terrorists from Iraq.

If someone knows of the forum do let me know!

Oh and the article also reports on how the biqab wearing teaching assistant did so on the basis of a fatwa. The article quotes Mufti Abdul Kadir Barkatullah, who is affiliated to the Muslim Council of Britain, saying: “I am 100% sure that wearing the niqab is not obligatory on Muslim women — it is a matter of choice. It’s more about habit than religion. The Tablighis observe the niqab very strictly.
