Law student convicted over terror videos
By Shenai Raif, PA
A law student who posted Islamic terrorist propaganda on the internet was facing jail today. Mohammed Gul was “pouring petrol on the fire” and his actions could have spurred others to commit acts of terror, said Sean Larkin, QC, prosecuting.
Gul, 23, of Hornchurch, Essex, was found guilty at the Old Bailey of five counts of disseminating terrorist publications. He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced tomorrow.
One charge related to an internet forum and four charges to 29 videos posted on YouTube in 2008. Mr Larkin said: “These were glorifying terrorism.”
Gul was studying law at Queen Mary University, east London, in February 2009, when police raided his home. He has since graduated. He had allegedly used clips from al-Qa’ida, the Taliban and Iraqi media sites and added jihadi songs.
One showed an image of Osama bin Laden along with words of a poem which praised him. Other sections showed the bodies of children and images of conflict including a coalition jeep being blown up, the court heard.
Mr Larkin said: “We suggest Mr Gul became more and more involved in extreme views.
