I have seen Anjum Choudary and his group a number of times outside Boots before the works. This seems to be their favoured spot. I'm not a lawyer, but I believe that if the message they are broadcasting might result in a breach of the peace (as it did last week) then they can be prevented under criminal law - but presumably if the breach is thought to be incited by them. If they are causing an obstruction then they can prevented under civil law.
The last time I walked past them on a Saturday afternoon with my 3 year old son one of them was shouting through a megaphone "Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them, make war on the kaffirs living in your neighborhood"
The time before that it was "The homosexuals will burn in a beautiful fire"
I'd be interested to know if this is legal or not ?? These are not things I'd like to hear anywhere, but particularly not on a busy high street on a Saturday afternoon when there are lots of children around.
Right. I've been asking this question for something like 15 years when I first heard them talking about how they were going to come kill Jewish women and children.
I stood there watching shoppers go past and nobody seemed to object. Can this be legal?
I'm the kind who DOESN"T jst stand by, who says something. So, should I have said/done something? Should this Jewish woman American have said something to them?
I'm pretty sure this kind of thing is supposed to be illegal, but as you say they've been there for years spouting unpleasant stuff so presumably the police have made the decision to leave them to it - but you're quite right Sharon, we should tell the police when we hear them saying such things, something I've vowed to do from now on, and maybe if enough of us start complaining the police will do something about it.
