This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The British government has demonstrated repeatedly that it is much more concerned with stopping foes of jihad terror — both domestic (Tommy Robinson) and foreign (me) — from speaking and having any influence over the public than it is with stopping jihad preachers. Theresa May wants Muslim votes, and there is apparently no low to which she will not sink in pursuit of them. So in this environment, Imran Waheed’s role as an expert witness is entirely to be expected. If he decides on a career in politics, he could be elected Prime Minister.
“EXCLUSIVE: Radical Islamist preacher who has said he ‘does not believe in democracy’ and is ‘not obedient’ to secular law is working as an expert witness to British courts,” by Jake Wallis Simons, Daily Mail, July 7, 2018:
A radical Islamist preacher who has said he ‘does not believe in democracy’ and is ‘not obedient’ to secular law is working as an expert witness to British courts, MailOnline can reveal.
Dr Imran Waheed, 41, a psychiatrist working for the NHS and Bupa in Birmingham, offers his services as an expert witness in a range of civil and criminal cases assessing defendants’ psychological reliability.
For many years he was a key figure in the UK branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir, which campaigns for an Islamic state run by Sharia law. In an interview he said: ‘I’ve got no respect for any law other than Allah’s… I don’t care for the law of any man.’
The disclosure has sparked fears that the justice system is vulnerable to Islamist entryists who wish to ‘take control from within’.
Dr Waheed told MailOnline that he had since left the group and changed his views.
But in November he appeared in the organisation’s official internet broadcast extolling the virtues of a caliphate.
According to his website, Dr Waheed gives British courts psychiatric assessments of a defendant’s ‘dangerousness’, fitness to hold a firearm licence and fitness to stand trial.
He also treats mentally ill patients and lectures university medical students on subjects including ‘cultural and ethnic aspects of mood disorders’.
In a BBC interview he said: ‘I’ve got no respect for any law other than Allah’s, so I don’t care about the law to be honest… I care for the law of Islam. I don’t care for the law of any man.’
When questioned by MailOnline he said that these statements were ‘not reflective of his current views’….
