Muslim Guilty of Incitement

Mizanur Rahman was found guilty of inciting racial hatred at the Old Bailey, although the jury were unable to reach a verdict concerning the charge of soliciting murder. The case has been adjourned while the prosecution decide whether to push for a retrial on the second charge.

Concerning UK troops, the man said, "We want to see their blood running in the streets of Baghdad." He went on to say, "Oh Allah, we want to see another 9/11 in Iraq, another 9/11 in Denmark, another 9/11 in Spain, in France, all over Europe." This is besides carrying offensive placards.

While it is important that this man has been tried and convicted, he most certainly wasn't the ringleader. Those people are well known to the police and should also be tried and convicted.

UPDATE: Mr Rahman will face a retrial on the charge of soliciting murder. The trial is due to take place in January and he will remain in custody until then.
