Umar Islam, is the former Brian Young. Today he sits in jail.
Via The Australian… “Umar Islam, a former Rastafarian who became a Muslim and changed his name from Brian Young, had moved from High Wycombe, north of London, to the East End of London, where he is employed as a ticket inspector. He is married to a Muslim woman who is the mother of his young child, and in 2004 he began to wear traditional Islamic clothes and pray five times a day.”
Waheed Zaman… is a follower of Tablighi Jamat, a missionary sect. The group’s preachers regularly visited the mosque where most of those arrested in East London worshipped. (The Australian)
Waheed has met George Galloway on several occasions.
