Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary calls for people who get drunk to be flogged
by Ben Leach
Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has called for people who get drunk to be flogged.
The lawyer, who recently praised the Mumbai terror attacks, said anyone becoming intoxicated by alcohol should be given 40 lashes in public. He claimed alcohol was "the root of all evil".
The 41-year-old made the remarks on his website Islam4UK, which argues that Britain should become an Islamic state ruled by Sharia law.
