Police rush to home of hate preacher Anjem Choudary to protect him and his family after threats as he blames Cameron’s ‘crusade’ for ‘turning young Muslims to terror’
- Officers took away his wife and children to safe house after alleged threat
- Far-right groups demand he is arrested or they will detain him themselves
- Choudary today blames police and security services for terror threats
Police have raced to the home of hate preacher Anjem Choudary and evacuated his family to protect them from attack, it emerged today.
Officers helped them flee their East London terraced house after threats from people wanting vengeance for the Woolwich murder of Lee Rigby.
Choudary, who believes that ‘war monger’ David Cameron’s ‘crusade’ in Afghanistan is turning young British Muslims to terrorism, allowed his wife and children to be rushed to a car and whisked away to a secret location at around 2pm yesterday.
Two Scotland Yard officers then stood guard at the property for several hours afterwards.
Choudary himself was not at home, with a neighbour saying he had left the property earlier that morning.
Scotland Yard today refused to discuss the operation, but it is understood that it was linked to a threat of violence.
A group called Britain First posted a video message online calling on police to arrest Anjem Choudary by 6pm or they would come to detain him themselves.
Members also claimed they knew where he lived and security sources confirmed they decision to move his wife and children was because of safety fears.
Choudary today blamed David Cameron for a ‘crusade’ against Islam which is turning young British Muslims into potential terrorists.
Aggressive foreign policy in Afghanistan and oppressive tactics employed by police and security organisations in Britain are responsible for isolating British Muslims and leading them to adopt the extreme ideology that results in violent attacks, according to Choudary, who admitted knowing Michael Adebolajo who butchered soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich last week.
‘By ignoring the link between what took place in Woolwich, by blaming Muslims, by trying to silence voices who oppose him and by justifying his rotten foreign policy, David Cameron has foolishly and inadvertently become the biggest radicalising tool for Muslim youth both in the UK and abroad,’ he said.
‘For the war monger David Cameron and his lackeys to suggest that no one can make such a link is not only complete rubbish but also highly irresponsible.
‘After all the British regime is supposedly charged with the security of the British people as opposed to being charged with engaging in some sort of Crusade against Islam and Muslims on the behest of the American regime around the world.’
