Muslim leader warns against 'misguided propaganda by forces of terror' as Bradford teenager is jailed for plotting to fight for IS
by Michael Black
A Muslim leader in Bradford last night urged vigilance against the "misguided propaganda by the forces of terror" after a teenager indoctrinated with "chilling" extremist views was jailed for plotting to go to Syria to fight for Islamic State.
Syed Choudhury, 19, who was raised in Bradford, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey last month to preparing acts of terrorism before his arrest in December 2014.
The court heard he researched online how to get to Syria and the only reason he had not left was he could not find anyone he trusted to go with.
