Offended of Whitechapel

Abdul Muhid, who in February 2006 led chants at a demonstration in London against depictions of the prophet Mohammed and threatened in public to bomb British citizens has been found guilty today of soliciting murder:

Muhid, a halal meat inspector, saw himself as a “soldier” engaged in a struggle against those he believed had insulted Islam, and exhorted people to commit “terrorist killing”, the court heard.

Afterwards, Mr Perry told the court Muhid had a previous conviction for smashing a bus shelter in Walthamstow market “which was displaying an advertisement which he said offended his religious beliefs”.

Sentencing is in April.
