TV Channel Fined After Muslim Scholar Tells People To Kill Infidels

A Muslim TV station that aired a programme by a Muslim who incited violence against 'infidels' has been fined, though not that much.  DM Digital will have to fork over £85,000 for several occasions in 2011 when the programme Rehmatul Lil Alameen, (Mercy Unto the Worlds) hosted a lecture by Islamic hate scholar Abdul Qadir Jilani who told people:

“The matter of insulting the prophet does not fall in the category of terrorism.

“Those who cannot kill such men have no faith.

“It is your duty, the duty of those who recite the holy verse, to kill those who insult Prophet Mohammed.

“Under the guidance from Islamic texts it is evident that if a Muslim apostatises, then it is not right to wait for the authorised courts; anyone may kill him.

“An apostate deserves to be killed and any man may kill him.”
The fine is a paltry sum considering he was encouraging viewers to kill people.  And, of course, Jilani  (who was born in Pakistan but lives in England) is probably continuing to incite violence, and should have his sorry deported or jailed. Encouraging people to kill is outside the purview of freedom of speech. Imagine if this was someone encouraging the killing of Muslims.

The rest on UK Telegraph.
