Christian Councillor receives internet death threat over mega-mosque

Printer-friendly version

Christian Councillor Alan Craig, who is a leading opponent of plans to build a ‘mega mosque’ in east London in time for the 2012 Olympic Games, has alerted police to an obituary he discovered on the popular internet site YouTube. The film is entitled ‘In memory of Councillor Alan Craig’ and shows pictures of Mr Craig, a member of the Christian Peoples Alliance, with his wife and two young daughters. The video has apparently been posted in response to Mr Craig’s opposition to the planned mega mosque and was made by a 23 year old Muslim from Stevenage who ends the film with the statement “The mosque will be built in time for the 2012 Olympic Games”. This is a chilling reminder of the kind of opposition Christians may face as they speak out on the issue of Islam. Please remember Mr Craig and his family in your prayers.

A full update on the issues surrounding the mega mosque is being prepared.
