Moderate London imam 'forced to resign from his mosque after physical and online threats were made against him for joining anti-extremism group Quillam'

A moderate imam has been forced to resign from his mosque after he was threatened with violence for joining anti-extremism group Quillam.

Sheikh Dr Salah Ansari al-Azhari has announced he is leaving Palmers Green Mosque in London because he was threatened shortly after he revealed he was joining the counter-extremist London-based think tank.

A Quilliam member told Breitbart London that the threats were part of a 'coordinated campaign' against the moderate Muslim.

The unnamed source said the organisation has 'screen shots' of online messages that were circulated which suggest the threats were organised.

Qulliam announced he was joining their team three days ago as a senior researcher in the Theology and Outreach Team. [Daily Mail] Read more
