“There is a real risk they will paint themselves as martyrs," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on Alan Johnson’s decision to ban Islam4UK, Chris Huhne said:

“Proscribing Islam4UK is playing into the hands of publicity-seeking Anjem Choudary and his odious followers.

“There is a real risk they will paint themselves as martyrs while simply changing their name and carrying on, or going underground.”
