Britain’s former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson compared the burqa worn women with a postbox. His remarks drew unimaginable criticism in a number of radical Muslim nations though, but the main protests took place in the UK, a country which is gradually going into the grips of radical Islam, if not sharia and even worst. There is every reason for Britons to feel worried at the rise of radical Islam especially when we hear about British politicians mixing with Islamist terrorists and even joining into business ventures with them.
British politicians romancing with Islamist terrorists
On May 26, 2019, Britain’s largest newspaper The Sunday Times in a report said a jihadist funder from Bangladesh who had obtained immigration under ‘Golden Visa’, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan has donated 20 thousand pounds to Tory Party, although initially, Khan denied making any political donations, he had to admit as confronted with the register of member’s interests. He told The Sunday Times, the reason behind making the donation was because he “liked” the junior health minister (MP Stephen Hammond) stating, “He has been very helpful to his constituents. He once helped my second daughter when she had problems with her school documents”.
Later, several newspapers around the world have published reports with shocking evidence of secret business relations between Tory MP Stephen Hammond and Islamic State funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan. It is even learned that Mr. Khan has actually invested the money in South Coast Regeneration and Investment Property (SCRIP) where Mr. Hammond is holding 15 percent of issued share capital from March 8, 2017. It is further learned that Md. Shahid Uddin Khan has also invited Sally Hammond, wife of Stephen Hammond MP to join Zumana Investment & Properties Limited (incorporation number 7417417, dated October 23, 2010), company formed by Khan and his family members.
Britain welcomes terror fund and narco-money
In 2009, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, along with his wife Farjana Anjum and daughters Shehtaz Munasi Khan, Parisa Pinaz Khan and Zumana Fiza Khan had entered the United Kingdom with tons of dirty money and had even managed immigrant status under Visa Tier 1, vide VAF No. 511702. They invested 12 million pounds only for obtaining the ‘Golden Visa’. None of the agencies in the United Kingdom, including the National Crime Agency (NCA) has ever asked the Khans about the source of money or how the money had entered Britain.
On January 17, 2019, Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Bangladesh Police, based on secret information, raided House No. 184, Road No. 2, Baridhara DOHS in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which is owned by Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and was allegedly used as a warehouse for arms, explosives and propaganda materials of Islamic State (ISIS). During the raid, a large volume of weapons, detonator, counterfeit Bangladesh currency notes and jihadist materials of ISIS were recovered by the CTTC unit.
Following this recovery, three separate cases against ISIS-funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters and other accomplices were lodged.
According to media reports, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters have laundered millions of dollars between 2009-2018 from Bangladesh and invested in the United Arab Emirates and Britain.
There are allegations about Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and his family having business relations with Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company in Dubai. Dawood Ibrahim controls much of the illegal channels of money transfer around the world. He has strong bases in India, United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Britain, European Union nations, America (especially Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador) Australia, Canada, the United States, and the African continent.
Burqa is the most convenient attire for the criminals
Following Borris Johnson’s remarks, shocking information centering burqa has been appearing in various media outlets with the information and data of how criminals are using burqa as the most convenient attire for committing the crime.
In Chad in July 2015, a man dressed in a burqa detonated a suicide bomb in the main market in the country’s capital N’Djamena, killing 15 people and injuring 80, with authorities blaming Boko Haram, the radical Islamic terror group based in neighboring Nigeria.
While defenders of the burqa in the West will claim it is not a security threat, countries in Africa have opted to ban the burqa and the niqab, with Muslim majority Chad banning them in the same year it suffered the aforementioned attack.
Fellow African nations Gabon, Congo, and parts of Cameroon also banned the burqa in the same year, also for security reasons, and in 2017, North African nation of Morocco banned the production and manufacture of the clothing over fears of terrorism, and to crack down on Islamic extremism.
There have also been terror attacks by burqa-clad assailants in Asia and the Middle East, where an Islamic State operative “dressed as a woman” blew himself up in his car outside the Shia Imam Hussein mosque in Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia in May 2015, killing four.
While motorcyclists are expected to remove their helmets before entering banks and jewelry stores, the same is not expected of those wearing Islamic face veils, with criminals taking advantage of liberal laws in Western countries to commit armed robbery.
In May 2017, an armed gang was jailed after using Islamic burqas to hide their identities as they stole hundreds of thousands of pounds in raids across Manchester, northern England, with similar robberies in Australia in 2017, the U.S. in 2015, and Canada in 2014.
American anti-Islamisation campaigner Pamela Geller, former UK Independence Party leader Paul Nuttall, and Australian anti-mass migration senator Pauline Hanson have all called for the ban on the Islamic garment on security grounds in their respective countries, while the garment has already been banned on grounds of social cohesion in France, Denmark, and Austria, amongst others in Europe.
Still, there is no real movement in Britain against burqa or hijab. On the contrary, the use of burqa and hijab is on rising at an alarming level. East London, in particular, is gradually turning into another ‘Iran’ or ‘Saudi Arabia’, where men and women consider that part of London as being “gradually rescued from the occupation of infidels”. In other words, gradually Islam is on ‘conquest’ and Britain is going to embrace sharia or maybe even worst.
