UK: Radical Cleric Converts 11-Year-Old Boy on Birmingham Street, Filmed Swearing Allegiance to Allah....

Jun 28 2009

A YOUNG schoolboy was “converted” to Islam on the streets of Birmingham by a radical Muslim preacher, the Sunday Mercury can reveal.

The bewildered-looking 11 year-old, who gives his name as Sean, was filmed repeating Arabic chants and swearing allegiance to Allah.

The white schoolboy is prompted throughout by controversial cleric Anjem Choudary, a follower of exiled hate-preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed.

The incident was filmed during a demonstration by Choudary’s Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah group in Birmingham city centre earlier this month.

Choudary, 42, was one of the masterminds behind sick protests at the homecoming parade of heroic British soldiers in Luton back in March.

He praised protesters who branded British troops “murderers” and later appeared at a press conference flanked by thugs who took part in the demo.

When contacted by the Sunday Mercury, Choudary defended the young boy’s “reversion” to Islam – but admitted his parents were not with him and were not consulted.

“The child was genuinely interested in Islam,” he said.

“The boy told us he wanted to become a Muslim and, of course, some people are intellectually more mature than they are physically.

“I don’t see there is any harm in this.

“He was with his friends, but I didn’t see if his parents were there.

“There were a lot of people at the event.’’

A message on Choudary’s website offers advice for those who become Muslim at his Islamic Roadshow.

“Conversion packs are already provided to those who revert to Islam in the Islamic Roadshows,” it says.

“They include a booklet on ‘Everything a Muslim must know’ and a free DVD with a brief guide on how to pray in Islam.”

Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah, is a splinter group of the controversial Al-Muhajiroun sect.

Last month we revealed that the sect, founded by exiled Bakri, is planning to reform.

Al-Muhajiroun, which has recruited hundreds of fanatics in the Midlands, fell apart in 2004 just months before Bakri was stopped from coming back to the UK under terror laws.

He has now set his sights set on a return for the extremist group, though the Home Office is understood to be closely monitoring its activities.

The ranting cleric was investigated by Scotland Yard back in 2000 after telling the Sunday Mercury that then Prime Minister Tony Blair was a “legitimate target” for assassination.

Since his exclusion from Britain, right-hand man Anjem Choudary has run Ahlus Sunah wal Jama’ah and the Islam For The UK website.

Choudary was secretly filmed by the Sunday Mercury at a youth centre in Alum Rock, Birmingham, last February, calling for strict Sharia law to be introduced in the city.
