Voting is Shirk - New al-Muhajiroun/Islam4UK Front Operating in Tower Hamlets
This is Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens in Standpoint magazine. It was obvious that they would raise their ugly heads again, sooner rather than later.
FocusonIslamism has found new evidence which suggests that the banned extremist organisation, al-Muhajiroun (aka Islam4uk), is now operating under a new name and encouraging Muslims to abstain from the upcoming general election.

Last week, the Spittoon blog reported that in Tower Hamlets leaflets bearing the name ‘Voting is
Shirk' were being distributed. Left - done up to look like a polling card.
The term shirk translates to polytheism, and presenting democracy as a form of worship (tawaghit) is one of the central aspects of Islamist ideology.  Islamist ideologues like Abu a la Maududi, Sayyid Qutb and Abu Muhammed al-Maqdisi wrote that voting for the leader of a country run by man-made law.
Voting is Shirk has also begun to put up posters saying "voting for man-made law is apostasy" and set up a website - www.votingisshirk.tk - which is registered in the New Zealand territory of Tokelau in what is likely to be an attempt to avoid being shut down due to connections with a group banned in this country.  Apart from the almost identical messages of the two groups, the links between Voting is Shirk and al-Muhajiroun are also clear on their website.
Members of Islam4UK appear in Voting is Shirk videos here and here.
Meanwhile in Wales the same thing is happening by a differently named group. From the Guardian.
A sticker campaign in Roath discouraging Muslims from voting has been rejected by the local community and condemned by Muslim leaders.
Stickers have been seen on lampposts and signposts on Albany Road, Donald Street, Arabella Street and Richmond Road, and resemble council public notices. The 'caution' messages tell members of the Muslim community it is against their religion to vote.
The stickers include the web address for a blog called Muslims Against Voting which argues that Allah's teaching says he is the only legislator for Muslims.
Shirk, attributing a partner to Allah, is the worst sin a Muslim can commit. Shirk, as a verb, to avoid or evade work or a duty, was a pretty heinous sin in my mother’s book. Funny that.
