VIDEO ABOUT CHOUDARY:
The Sun reports London Bridge terrorist was a student of hate preacher Anjem Choudary before he was caged for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange, it has emerged.
Police said he was “known to authorities” after he was convicted in 2012 for terror offences and freed last December.
Khan was one of the al-Muhajiroun connected terrorists who were released starting in 2018.
He founded and led the notorious now-banned UK terror network before it was renamed Islam4UK.
Dr Paul Stott, a research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society, today told The Daily Telegraph that”all these years later, and Anjem Choudary’s one-time acolytes are still butchering members of the public on our streets”.
He added that 25 per cent of all Islamist terrorists have some sort of “link to Choudary “.
Dr Scott said the “security services must consider immediately recalling Choudary to prison until the threat posed by him and his affiliates has stabilised”.
Choudary was jailed for five-and-a-half years in 2016 after making speeches urging Muslims to support ISIS.
He was freed from Belmarsh Prison on October 2018 – after serving just half of his sentence.
The hate preacher and his sidekick Mohammad Mizanur Rahman were convicted after they signed an oath of allegiance to the terror group after it declared an Islamic Caliphate in July 2014.
They also recorded speeches uploaded onto YouTube in which Choudary called for Islam to achieve “world domination” with the black flag flying from Downing Street and the White House and for “kuffar” non-believers to be executed.
At the time of his sentencing, the hate preacher had been linked to 15 terror plots over 20 years and had connections with hundreds of British jihadists who had gone to fight in Syria.
Choudary was released on licence and is banned from leaving London.
He was last snapped in May leaving his East London home.
