In light of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary used it to blast free speech. He did not condemn the attacks, but suggested more laws to ban images of Mohammed.

Muslims love the Messenger Muhammad (saw) more than their parents, children and even themselves! Why don’t people understand? #ParisShooting — Anjem Choudary (@anjemchoudary) January 7, 2015

We must see what the honour of the Prophet means to Muslims after Salman Rushdie, Hirsi Ali, Theo Can Gogh & Terrance McNally #ParisShooting — Anjem Choudary (@anjemchoudary) January 7, 2015

Freedom of expression does not extend to insulting the Prophets of Allah, whatever your views on the events in Paris today! #ParisShooting — Anjem Choudary (@anjemchoudary) January 7, 2015

If freedom of expression can be sacrificed for criminalising incitement & hatred, Why not for insulting the Prophet of Allah? #ParisShooting — Anjem Choudary (@anjemchoudary) January 7, 2015

As Mediaite points out, it is not the first time Choudary dabbled in controversy. He was a spokesman “for al-Muhajiroun, a radical group now banned in England.” He shot to fame in the United States in August when he engaged in a fight with FOX News host Sean Hannity after the Islamic State murdered American journalist James Foley.

Choudary also told Hannity that “Sharia will be implemented in America, it’s coming,” and “Sharia is coming to a place near you.
