Kamran promoted Osama Bin Laden

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles
in response to reader comment: Kamran Bokhari of Al Mohajiroon

Submitted by Asad (Pakistan), Jan 24, 2016 at 09:47

Kamran Bokhari is an extremist with a long history of extremism. My concerns listed above should not be ignored. Kamran Bokhari appears on the mainstream media building credibility using his claims of post-islamism and being a university lecturer (he does not possess a PhD). Having known Kamran Bokhari in his university days, I can assure you this moron is an extremist, read what he himself has written in his many droppings on various internet groups. Presented under are several links containing posts by Kamran Bokhari praising Osama Bin Laden and Omar Bakri Mohammad, denouncing democracy as "Kufr ideas" and acting as spokesperson for the Al-Mohajiroon group of extremists that evolved out of Hizb ut Tahrir. He should be closely monitored if not locked up. The people he radicalized were probably imprisoned or killed or deported, yet he has the luxury of working for intelligence agencies like Stratfor and to tout his fake "post-islamism"- it is outrageous.
Some Links:
