Islamists “may continue on Olympic mega-mosque site”
Country/Region: Europe, United Kingdom
Separatist Islamist sect Tablighi Jamaat may continue to use the temporary mosque on the site of their proposed Olympic mega-mosque at West Ham, London, after a Government Planning Inspector overruled the local council’s eviction notice.

The decision has been roundly condemned by local opposition group Newham Concern, which says that it will provide succour to Islamic radicals and further boost the capital's reputation as "Londonistan".
“For years Tablighi Jamaat have deliberately flouted building regulations and planning laws,” said Alan Craig, Newham Concern’s campaign director and former Leader of the Opposition on Newham Council. “After much delay and procrastination Newham Council at last took the right action and told them to move off site. But the Planning Inspector has overturned this and apparently decided that illegality pays and they can stay on site with temporary planning permission for a further two years.
“This is ominous for the future development of this key site. It is unjust, as the rest of us are expected to act within the law of the land or we get penalised,” said Alan Craig. “And it is divisive as it puts Tablighi Jamaat in a privileged protected position.
“Nonetheless our campaign will continue and we will up our opposition. East London is a great place to live and for the sake of our tolerant diverse east London communities, we cannot allow their massive monument to separatism, bigotry and misogyny to be constructed.”
