Extremism in Waltham Forest: an update (2)

Two recent media stories again underline the extent and pernicious nature of the religious extremism which currently permeates Waltham Forest.

In early October, the estimable Evening Standard journalist David Churchill reported that a booklet ‘which says “any Muslim should kill” those who insult the Prophet Mohammed’ had allegedly been distributed at the Dar-ul-Uloom Qadria Jilania mosque in Walthamstow, prompting a police investigation.

A few days ago, the blog Harry’s Place revealed another facet of the extremism – virulent sectarianism directed towards Ahmadis.

It had discovered that at the same Walthamstow mosque, and again in October, a rally was held in support of an organisation called Khatm-e-Nubuwwat.

The significance of this is that the latter, according to Harry’s Place, is a ‘vicious Pakistani movement dedicated to inciting hatred against Ahmadi Muslims’, and one that has ‘an extensive, energetic, sinister and increasingly worrying UK network’.
