Anjem Choudary has been recorded telling followers to claim benefits as part of their struggle to bring sharia law to the UK
A controversial Muslim cleric who lives off benefits is urging his followers to also sponge off UK taxpayers by claiming their ‘Jihadseeker’s allowance’.
Anjem Choudary, who in the past has planned to disrupt the minute’s silence on Remembrance Sunday, also openly mocked hard-working Britons, calling them ‘slaves’.
The Sun newspaper secretly filmed him saying Islam will overrun Europe, David Cameron and Barack Obama should be killed and calling the Queen ‘ugly’.
The father-of-four takes home more than £25,000 a year in benefits and lives in a £320,000 house in Leytonstone, East London.
He told a crowd of around 30 fanatics: ‘People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working’. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar (non-Muslim).
‘So we take Jihadseeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.’
In another video a grinning Choudary is recorded telling his disciples that it is justifiable to take money from non-believers.
He said: ‘The normal situation is to take money from the kuffar. You work, give us the money, Allahu Akhbar (God is great).
