Regarding the organised religion of islam and the comparative extremist 'minority' in the UK - its interesting that the well respected British broadsheet newspaper 'The Times' has reported that up to half of British mosques are now under hardline control:


Almost half of Britain’s mosques are under the control of a hardline Islamic sect whose leading preacher loathes Western values and has called on Muslims to “shed blood” for Allah, an investigation by The Times has found.

Riyadh ul Haq, who supports armed jihad and preaches contempt for Jews, Christians and Hindus, is in line to become the spiritual leader of the Deobandi sect in Britain.The ultra-conservative movement, which gave birth to the Taleban in Afghanistan, now runs more than 600 of Britain’s 1,350 mosques, according to a police report seen by The Times.

The Times investigation casts serious doubts on government statements that foreign preachers are to blame for spreading the creed of radical Islam in Britain’s mosques and its policy of enouraging the recruitment of more “home-grown” preachers.

Mr ul Haq, 36, was educated and trained at an Islamic seminary in Britain and is part of a new generation of British imams who share a similar radical agenda. He heaps scorn on any Muslims who say they are “proud to be British” and argues that friendship with a Jew or a Christian makes “a mockery of Allah’s religion”.


...A commentator on religious radicalism in Pakistan, where Deobandis wield significant political influence, told The Times that “blind ignorance” on the part of the Government in Britain had allowed the Deobandis to become the dominant voice of Islam in Britain’s mosques.

Khaled Ahmed said:“The UK has been ruined by the puritanism of the Deobandis. You’ve allowed the takeover of the mosques. You can’t run multiculturalism like that, because that’s a way of destroying yourself. In Britain, the Deobandi message has become even more extreme than it is in Pakistan. It’s mind-boggling.”

While the topic certainly deserves serious study, it is very odd how all your threads link to articles that are ANCIENT. I've noticed this twice with your threads before. What's up? How do you come across these articles
? You a late newser? An archival rat?


Anyhow, on topic, since 2007 (when this article was written), the Deobandis have publicly and unanimously condemned the Taliban, and its terrorist activities (I think they had a huge conference in India?).

Other than that, I'm not finding much news. Have Deobandi mosques finally crossed 50% in the UK? Do you have any recent statistics to follow up with that article, Karl? I'm interested!

Is it that you think the Daily Telegraph has made up the news report or that you'd prefer to wilfully ignore it?
