Bakri told The Sun: “Amir Khan is not a good example for Muslims. He wears shorts with the Union Jack. That is a sin. He should not be wearing the flag because sovereignty is for God. His only allegiance should be to the Prophet Mohammed. The ideal situation would be to have a Muslim team not registered to any state so he can represent the Islamic community.”

PRIZE BOXER KHAN

If you STILL harbour the fond and naive belief that we are all the same under the skin, in our hearts or wherever else you want to look, keep an eye on this page. I intend to update it with examples of what we are dealing with in regard to Islamist fundamentalism. It is a philospohy which regards anything but absolute sublimation to Islam, Mohammed and Allah as unacceptable. To them there is no intrinsic value to any country, any state, any democracy.

THESE PEOPLE ARE UNACCEPTABLE IN A FREE WORLD, AND NEED TO BE RECOGNISED AS SUCH

Today it is the young boxer Amir Khan under attack by Omar Bakri Mohammad.

Muslim ‘role model’ Khan defended

British boxer Amir Khan was hailed as a “wonderful role model” for British Muslims in a rebuke to a radical preacher who criticised him for wearing the Union Flag.

Exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammad told The Sun the boxer was committing a sin and set a bad example to Muslims for showing allegiance to the British flag.

His comments were branded “bizarre” by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB).

Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary general of MCB said: “Amir Khan is a wonderful role model.

“He’s a hugely successful boxer, proud of being Muslim and British. I can see why that could upset Omar Bakri, but to hundreds of thousands of British Muslims, Amir Khan is a wonderful role model.”

The Commonwealth lightweight title-holder is draped with the Union Flag in photos on his official website and often wears shorts featuring the emblem.

Bakri told The Sun: “Amir Khan is not a good example for Muslims. He wears shorts with the Union Jack. That is a sin. He should not be wearing the flag because sovereignty is for God. His only allegiance should be to the Prophet Mohammed.

“The ideal situation would be to have a Muslim team not registered to any state so he can represent the Islamic community.”

    It’s a sad state of affairs when there are people like you further alianating people in this fashion!

    “His comments were branded “bizarre” by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB).”

    Enough said, they are out of touch with the common consensus of “british muslims”

    It seems as though your trying to make a point against your average Muslim!

    Rather than the people who are following “Jihad”???

    WHAT!? People like ME doing WHAT!?

    How out of kilter some of us are with reality. I have plainly said, and always plainly say, that I have NO argument with the average Muslim who has no truck with fundamentalism or terrorism.

    I DO have some concerns that THEY do not speak out loudly enough against jihadists – and I have often said that. But I do NOT bracket them with the jihadists.

    I DO think they should be speaking out and challenging their own good books though.

    The PC brigade in this country has taken it all too far. We are now so afraid to expect reciprocal tolerance from minority faiths here in the UK that we seem to have more or less abandoned our own faith and culture. (I speak as someone to whom a deity is invisible, btw, for your information!)

    And now the Church of England is even concerned. That’s the CofE whose archbishop thinks we should introduce Sharia Law!!

    Come on.

    The government is afraid to say boo to a goose in case it flaps its wings, and stops voting for them in the inner cities.

    Crazy and weak in my humble opinion.

    Speak up for your own country’s values and history, before such nasty outfits as the BNP do. Immigrants are still welcome to join us in our liberal land. But they join US and not vice versa.
