Poppy-burning Muslim extremist says he will wear fine as 'badge of honour'
by Laura Roberts
A Muslim extremist who burned replica poppies on Armistice Day said he will wear his £50 fine as a "badge of honour" as campaigners condemned his lenient sentence.
Emdadur Choudhury, 26, a member of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), was convicted of public disorder after burning two poppies during the two-minute silence on November 11 last year.
Judge Howard Riddle imposed the low fine despite saying Choudhury was guilty of a "calculated and deliberate insult to the dead and those who mourn them".
