As the home secretary is praised for blocking the extradition to the US of a man with Asperger's syndrome, the government is accused of "old-fashioned racism" over a similar case.
The home secretary was praised by David Cameron at the recent Conservative Party conference for successfully securing the extradition of radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza, along with four others, to the USA.
One of those extradited was Syed Talha Ahsan, a 34-year-old British man. He is not an associate of Abu Hamza, nor charged with the same terrorism charges as Abu Hamza. Like Gary McKinnon, he suffers from Asperger's syndrome.,
The charges against Mr Ahsan and Mr Ahmad relate to the Azzam website and were specifically that the website had "exhorted Muslims to travel to Chechnya and Afghanistan in order to defend those places", and that "classified USA Navy plans relating to a US Navy battle group in the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf had been sent to the website".
