Muslim terror suspect Mohiussunnath Chowdhury pleaded not guilty today in a jihad attack on police officers with a four-foot samurai sword outside Buckingham Palace, shouting “allahu akbar” (what else?).
According to Islamic texts and teachings, he is not guilty. According to the doctrine of jihad, Chowdhury is devout and pious. The British courts adhere to the speech laws of sharia, prosecuting those who speak critically of Islam. How is this any different? Under Islam, Mohiussunnath Chowdhury’s aspiration of martyrdom is divine (he left a martyrdom letter). Are we not told, on a now daily basis, to respect Islamic teachings?

Terror suspect Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, is accused of driving a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police van on Constitution Hill on the evening of August 25 last year.
It is alleged that he then reached for a four foot long samurai sword he had stored in the well of the car, but was sprayed with CS gas and arrested as he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’.

Two officers were taken by ambulance to hospital with minor cuts and discharged a short time later. A third injured officer did not require hospital treatment.
As part of the attack Chowdhury wrote a suicide note, it has been claimed.
Today he appeared at the Old Bailey via video link and pleaded not guilty to one count of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts contrary to section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
Due to communication breakdown between the court and high security Belmarsh prison, the court was not able to hear the defendant, but he was able to hear the proceedings.
Prison staff wrote out a number of signs with pieces of paper with the words of ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘guilty’ and ‘not guilty’.
Chowdhury was wearing a prison issue jumper and used the pieces of paper to confirm his name and enter a plea of not guilty to the single count.
The charge alleges that he obtained a samurai sword, purchased a knife sharpener, prepared a suicide note and ‘drove to the area of London adjacent to Buckingham Palace’.
Mrs Justice Ceema-Grubbb said: ‘This case will be fixed for trial to commence on June 18 this year, with an estimate of seven days.’
Chowdhury, of Luton, Bedfordshire, was remanded in custody to appear at the same court for his trial on June 18.
