The Watford Observer reports
that Asif Khan, a member of the local council, collaborated with an Islamofascist group:
A Watford councillor was previously a senior member of the radical Islamist movement, Hizb ut-Tahrir, and called for the establishment of an Islamic state, the Watford Observer can reveal.
Articles written by Asif Khan, a Labour representative for Leggatts Ward, argue Muslims should not take part in Western politics and that they should work to establish Islam in non-Islamic states.
The articles, written between 2003 and 2004, also state Muslims in non-Islamic countries should strictly adhere to Sharia law, arguing for polygyny – in which a man has more than one wife at the same time - and against intermarriage with non-believers.
Councillor Khan, a 36-year-old college lecturer, has confirmed he was a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir between the early 2000s and 2007 and sat on its executive committee as well as editing its magazine Khilafah.
He claims he's changed his ways, but as usual, we must always remain on taqqiya alert, lest we be fooled by any potential attempts to pretend he's "reformed" when in fact he may not have.
