Mega Mosque Debate - Update

A FIERCE public debate was held tonight(Friday) over plans to build Europe's biggest mosque on Waltham Forest's doorstep.

The £100 million structure, dubbed a "mega mosque", would be the biggest in Europe, having space for 10,000 worshippers with a facility to increase this later.

It has been earmarked for a site at Abbey Mills, in Stratford.

The mosque would serve as the UK and European headquarters of the Islamic group Tablighi Jamaat.

Tonight the Christian People's Alliance leader on Newham Council Alan Craig, and Tablighi Jamaat supporter Abdul Khaliq Mian, locked horns at a public debate in Stratford.

Cllr Craig has called for a public inquiry into Tablighi Jamaat following alleged terror links.

At the debate he accused Tablighi Jamaat of having a "them and us" mentality that would damage community relations.

He also criticised the group for keeping low-profile and not taking part in debates.

He said that the idea of an "Islamic" hub to the Olympics goes against everything the Games is supposed to stand for.

He also said that the mosque is likely to have been funded by Saudi Arabian money and criticised what he sees as that nation's religious intolerance.

Cllr Craig also alleged that Tablighi Jamaat had broken planning regulations on its existing mosque on the Abbey Mills site and had not cleaned up contamination.

Although supporting the group, Mr Mian was not speaking as a Tablighi Jamaat representative as the organisation had declined to attend the debate.

Mr Mian refuted the suggestion that Tablighi Jamaat encourages a divisive mentality, saying that the group is peaceful and open to everybody.

He also said that a larger mosque is needed to cater for the people of east London and that the contamination on the Abbey Mills site is safe.

Mr Mian also said that the Christian People's Alliance was not an inclusive organisation itself.

For more on the mega mosque debate, with quotes from both parties and other members of the public, see this Thursday's Waltham Forest Guardian.


Those of us with half a brain have always said. This monument to madness is planned and funded by Saudia Arabia and and the maddest of the maddest, the Tablighi Jamaat pushing their plans forward. Only the British National Party would have the courage to say NO and then outlaw Tablighi Jamaat and deport all known members. Make your mind up. Mega Mosque or BNP. Your choice - whilst you are still allowed one.

The babyshagging Scummah are no longer making any attempt to conceal their plans, as they know we're too 'nice' to do anything about them:

"Our followers ‘must live in peace until strong enough to wage jihad’."

One of the world’s most respected Deobandi scholars believes that aggressive military jihad should be waged by Muslims “to establish the supremacy of Islam” worldwide.

Justice Muhammad Taqi Usmani argues that Muslims should live peacefully in countries such as Britain, where they have the freedom to practise Islam, only until they gain enough power to engage in battle.

His views explode the myth that the creed of offensive, expansionist jihad represents a distortion of traditional Islamic thinking."

If we don't kick these creeps out soon our children will be living under the Islamic lash.

What better way to send a message to the world, than by building this mega-mosque in Britain, the country that has been a leading light in Christianity for 2000 years.
" Look world, soon this country will be ruled by Islam, and thank you to our friends for all their help...Mr Blair, Mr Brown, Prince Charles, and especially Mr Livingston, you made it so easy for us!!"

Get a BNP government, kick 'em all out, and their spineless collaborating traitor friends!

Even if lots of people complain it will still go through. The only way of stopping it would be to vote BNP.

Or two get a sympathetic farmer or slaughterhouseman to spread pigs blood all over the land earmarked for this satanic building, then pray for rain to wash it in deep.

According to a blog report out today, there is a call for the land for the proposed mega-mosque to be compulsory purchased to avoid the monstrosity being built.
