From The Telegraph;
The security services repeatedly prevented Scotland Yard from pursuing criminal investigations against hate preacher Anjem Choudary, it has been claimed.
Met counter-terror officers often felt they enough evidence to build a case against the radicalising cleric, only to be told to hang fire by MI5, because he was crucial to one of their on-going investigations, a source has claimed.
The situation led to tension between the two sides with police feeling “frustrated” that Choudary was not being brought to justice, the source added.
The ‘Islamic communities’, in the UK, have long been blamed for not stopping this man, but the reality seems to be that this media darling was being ‘protected’ by Government agencies who were trying to play a long game with him whilst Muslims bore the brunt of his horrific words in the form of rampant Islamophobia.
