Yusuf al-Qaradawi banned from Britain

The government has banned Yusuf al-Qaradawi from entering Britain:

The government has been criticised by moderate Muslim groups for banning a controversial Muslim scholar from entering Britain and branding him an extremist.

The government confirmed to the Guardian that Yusuf al-Qaradawi had applied to come to the UK but had been refused.

The decision could hand the Tories a small political victory as the Conservative leader, David Cameron, last week called for his exclusion from the UK, saying Qaradawi was a “dangerous and divisive” preacher of hate.

I agree with Sunny Hundal on this issue:

The same baying mob that was saying “So fucking what?” when British Muslims said they were offended by the Danish cartoons are now falling over themselves to declare they’re being offended by this preacher and therefore he shouldn’t be allowed in. It’s that stinking smell of hypocrisy again.

    The disgusting two-faced attitude of our country. The UK is becoming more and more a police state, pulling themselves back into the dark ages. Then they ask why they get attacked by terrorists!

    Of all the people, why Qaradawi – someone who has condemned terrorism openly and worked for peace and unity. He has come so many times to the UK and this was just for a medical treatment also!

    Pampering to the neo-con, pro-Israeli agenda, the government has shown its ugly face once again. What respect or trust is their in this government??

    Hypocrasy is what these people swim in, their hands stained with blood their minds polluted by the neocon agenda.

    May Allah relieve us of these putrid beings and bring about good leadership with high moral and ethical standards, who respect religion, freedom of speech and tolerate differences.

    Why doesn’t Qaradawi go to Saudi Arabia for medical treatment? Why come to filthy, depraved, backwards England?
