Leaflet 'handed out at east London mosque' tells Muslims to kill all who insult the prophet
by David Churchill
Police today launched a hate crime probe after literature saying those who insult Islam "must be killed" was allegedly handed out at a London mosque.
A Standard investigation has uncovered claims that the booklet, which says "any Muslim should kill" those who insult the Prophet Mohammed, was distributed at a gathering in Walthamstow.
It points to a classical manual of Islamic law to justify killings without waiting for court judgments and says apostates "deserve to be assassinated".
The booklet discusses the case of Mumtaz Qadri, a fanatic who murdered a governor in Pakistan in 2011 because of his support for liberal reforms to the country's strict Islamic laws.
