Anjem Choudary claims all Muslim MPs and voters are 'apostates' sinning against Islam

From the Independent

Radical preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed that all Muslim MPs and voters are “apostates” as the general election approaches. Writing on Twitter that voting is a “sin” against Islam, he argued that Parliament violated religious law because Allah is “the only legislator”.

Mr Choudary wrote: “The only excuse is for a new Muslim or someone totally ignorant about voting and also what's known from Islam by necessity.”

In a stream of messages using the #StayMuslimDontVote hashtag, the cleric called Muslims who vote or run as an MP are “apostates”, meaning they have abandoned their beliefs.

Mr Choudary, who has headed banned groups including Islam4UK and al-Muhajiroun, instructed his followers not to follow any imams who tell them voting is religiously permitted.

Posters claiming democracy “violates the right of Allah” were spotted in Cardiff at the weekend as part of what seemed to be a grassroots campaign called #DontVote4ManMadeLaw. They were swiftly taken down by members of the public in the Welsh capital and the council said it would remove them. 

They are in Leicester now but have not yet been seen in London. Eyes are being kept open. Obviously a vote for the likes of George Galloway is not to be encouraged. I have heard this opinion expressed, and feel it has some merit; that the campaign to discourage Muslims from voting is to make the dishonest manipulation of their postal vote much easier.

I would often see 'Voting is haraam' stickers around election time in my native Birmingham (which I left just last year).
