East London council gives 'award' to leader of extreme Islamist party
by David Churchill
The head of an extreme Islamist party which has defended murdering blasphemers was "honoured" at a London town hall in the presence of the local mayor, the Standard has learned.
Senator Siraj ul Haq, head of Pakistan's Jamaat-e-Islami party, was given an "award" — a plaque bearing the borough's coat of arms — in recognition of his visit at Waltham Forest council.
A report leaked to the Standard reveals the event was one of many arranged by the father of a Waltham Forest councillor and in some cases a convicted fraudster, both having gained privileged access to the Mayor's Parlour.
