Press Release   •   Jan 06, 2010 10:56 GMT

“Muslim extremists in particular should be grateful that we live in a country that values freedom of speech and does not lock up protesters, as is sadly the case in too many Islamic countries," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on the proposed march through Wootton Bassett by Islam4UK, Chris Huhne said:

“The furore over the planned march in Wootton Bassett is playing right into the hands of the shameless self-publicist Anjem Choudary.

“Muslim extremists in particular should be grateful that we live in a country that values freedom of speech and does not lock up protesters, as is sadly the case in too many Islamic countries.

“I hope Mr Choudary realises how much pain his disgusting plans will cause and abandons the march.”
