Anjem Choudary, former spokesman for the radical Muslim group Islam4UK, and his followers burned the U.S. and British flags outside the U.S. embassy in London on September 11. The group was banned this past year on January 12 by the British government under counter-terrorism laws. However, the then British Home Secretary Alan Johnson said: "It is already proscribed under two other names - Al Ghurabaa and The Saved Sect". According to the group, this was done as a counter-protest to the planned Quran burning in the United States-- that never actually happened. (Jump below video to read more on the group)

Before the groups ban this past year, Islam4Uk's website claimed:

(It has been) established by sincere Muslims as a platform to propagate the supreme Islamic ideology within the United Kingdom as a divine alternative to man-made law" to "convince the British public about the superiority of Islam...thereby changing public opinion in favour of Islam in order to transfer the authority and the Muslims in order to implement the Sharee’ah (here in Britain)"
According to
Islam4UK make it clear that their plan is to make Britain an Islamic state and introduce sharia law. One article on the site even calls for Buckingham Place to be turned into a mosque once this goal is achieved, showing a mock-up picture of what it might look like. Mr Choudary, leader of the organisation, has said that "Islam is undeniably the only real solution for Britain's problems." In February last year he called for people who get drunk to be publicly flogged and declared that alcohol should be "removed from society". He has repeatedly accused British soldiers of perpetrating "atrocities" against Muslims and admits his supporters were behind the protests by Muslim extremists who met troops returning from Iraq to Luton earlier this year. Mr Choudary also believes that Christmas is "evil" and turkey dinners, crackers and Christmas trees are the "pathway to hellfire". In March he was investigated by police after attempting to raise funds for mujahideen fighters.
That's not all. Choudary once claimed terrorists who committed the September 11 attacks were "magnificent martyrs." He was also one of the men behind the protests against the controversial Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad. (h/t Fox Nation )
