Mosques must be monitored and terror training facilities, aka gyms, as well.
The owner of the gym is a notorious jihad ringleader. I am sure that he, too, is on the UK’s pointless watch lists. Muslim supremacists have succeeded in elevating the murderous jihadic doctrine to a religious status, a protected status, so that targeting devout Muslims plotting sedition and terror becomes deeply problematic. Hotbeds of jihad activity, like mosques, become off-limits. The fruits of undercover work are undermined, as jihadis and their handmaidens on the left work to eliminate such programs as “entrapment” and “islamophobic.”
“A great halal environment to work out” — perhaps, but it is a hotbed for murderous sedition in the cause of Allah.
There is, of course, complete segregation between the sexes.

London terrorist attended ‘Muslim gym’ – Westmonster
by Westmonster, June 6, 2017
London Bridge terrorist Khuram Butt worked out at a gym ‘for Muslims’ where women exercise in segregated classes.Ummah Fitness Centre in Ilford, where a monthly membership will set you back £15, runs separate fitness classes for men and women.
It is reportedly run by Sajeel Shahid, who is said to have ties to the extremist preacher Anjem Choudary.
It would appear women are allowed to take part in segregated cardio classes most mornings, while men get to hone their fighting skills in the afternoon.
The gym offers wing chun martial arts sessions, run by Brother Yusuf, and taekwondo MMA, led by Master Khan – it also runs a class called “the insanity workout”.
There are also boxing and cross fit classes.
Ummah means “the whole community of Muslims bound together by ties of religion” and the gym itself is located above a shop called Quality Fish Bazar on St Luke’s Avenue – Westmonster contacted a nearby shop and a worker confirmed it was a gym “for Muslims”.
There are Islamic scriptures visible on the walls of the gym, and on the website there are quotes saying: “A strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than a weak believer.”
There is another slogan on the site reading: “After yaqeen (certainty) one is granted nothing better than health” – that is a direct quote from Islamic scholar al-Tirmidhi.
A review on Facebook describes it as “a great halal environment to work out”.
Sajeel Shahid also spelt as Sajil Shahid was one of the leaders of Al-Muhajiroun, an Islamist group based in the United Kingdom that endorsed al Qaeda‘s terror attacks on September 11, 2001. He was called the Emir or Lahore Emir and was the head of Al-Muhajiroun in Pakistan. On December 1, 2001, an interview with Shahid was published in the Manchester Evening News, in which he described fellow young men from the Manchester area traveling to Pakistan to fight beside the Taliban.
In 2005, it was reported that Shahid had run a “safe house” in Lahore for violent extremists from the United Kingdom. The Pakistani government abducted and held Shahid in 2005 at an undisclosed location without access to the justice system for three month before expelling him. PTI chief Imran Khan called Shahid’s abduction and detention a gross human rights violation.
During the 2007 trial of individuals suspected of involvement in the Luton cell‘s bomb plot the Daily Mail and BBC reported that the training camp in Pakistan where Mohammed Quayyam Khan and Omar Khyam received bomb-making training had been allegedly set up by Shahid.[dubious ]
