Samina Malik, who prefered to call herself the “lyrical terrorist” is now facing time for her poems that, among other things, ponder the joys of beheading victims.
“Described as a “committed Islamic extremist”, Malik, a shop assistant at Heathrow, hoarded an extensive collection of terrorism manuals, the Old Bailey heard. She was a member of an extremist group linked to Omar Bakri Mohammed, a hate preacher who fled to Lebanon from Britain two years ago. Yesterday a jury found her guilty of possessing documents likely to be used for terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2000, by a majority of ten to one, after deliberating for 19 hours. Malik, who wore a black head scarf, wept as the verdict was read out.
The Islamic “preachers of hate” should be the first to be (if not a citizen, or holds dual citizenship) kicked out of western states, if caught brainwashing their congregations with hate for the west, and inspiring others to acts of violence, locally or elsewhere. I hope that the judge who is presiding over the Malik case, sets her as an example and gives her the maximum. More here. *L* KGS
