‘British soldiers are going to hell’

With thanks to the National Front weekly e-news bulletin for first publicising this story.

DAILY EXPRESS, 1 Nov 2009: A RADICAL Muslim cleric has sparked outrage by claiming Britain’s war dead have been sent to hell.

Sheikh Anjem Choudary, the leader of Islam4UK, also dismissed the two world wars as having no purpose.

As the country prepares for Remembrance Day, the British-born former law student delivered a hate-filled rant insulting the memory of the millions who laid down their lives in the name of freedom.

He said: “We have a different understanding of wars.

“The wars which are fought for nationalism, tribalism and land, I feel, need to be condemned. When we fight, it’s to please God or to defend our honour, not land. We are not allowed to feel sorry for any non-Muslim nation.

“Those nationalistic wars served no purpose and we cannot praise any of those who were involved in them.

“Anything that happens to those non-Muslims is a punishment from God. As a Muslim I have to believe they died and went to hell fire.” His comments were attacked yesterday by ex-soldiers and veterans’ groups.
