Remember Aishah Azmi?…
The veiled British teacher who was SO BUSTED in this video interview by the BCC for her veil antics?…
Well Aishah is back in the news today.
Apparently, she has a close association with the mosque that the 7-7 bombers attended!
The Daily Mail reports:
The Muslim teacher suspended for refusing to work without her veil is connected to a hardline mosque where the ringleader of the July 7 bombers worshipped, it has emerged.
The family of classroom assistant Aishah Azmi, 24, plays a key role at the fundamentalist Markazi mosque in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire – which was attended by suicide bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan.
Until recently, Miss Azmi’s father was joint headmaster of the secondary school attached to the building.
The mosque is run by Tablighi Jamaat, a radical Islamic movement believed by intelligence agencies to be a fertile source for recruiting young extremists.
Two months ago, Tablighi emerged as a link between several of the men arrested over the plot to use liquid bombs to blow up transatlantic airliners.
Richard Reid, the jailed shoebomber who tried to blow up a flight to America, also attended mosques run by the group.
Update: EU Referendum has this exceptional posting on Aishah Azmi and her ilk:
The Telegraph editorial is as good as any. “The veil stretches our tolerance to its limits”, it says.
And it does – quite genuinely. I see these little madams prancing around on the streets locally and they are offensive. As the Telegraph observes, these are largely Pakistani women, yet they are adopting an Arabic form of dress. This is not a religious custom. It is a political statement.
If la Azmi felt this was discrimination, then it was precisely what she wanted. In making a statement that she was different and wanted to be treated differently, how can she then complain if people respond.
