Islamic teacher under fire for calling on Welsh muslims to support fight for sharia law abroad
by James McCarthy
An Islamic teacher whose group was at the centre of an anti-terror raid on a Cardiff community hall has come under fire for calling on Welsh muslims to "physically" support the fight for sharia law abroad.
Abu Hajar, of Grangetown, Cardiff, is one of the leaders of the Islamic group Supporters of Tawheed, which on its website says its core belief is the "domination of the world by Islam".
The group – which according to its website also rejects democracy and freedom, describing them as "false deities" – hit the headlines in January when one man arrested during a raid on a meeting in the city's Canton Community Hall told an officer "I will chop your head off" before shouting "I'm going to shoot you with a machine gun". Mohammed Abdin, 21, was subsequently jailed for eight months for the threats.
