The 54-year-old joined the social networking site as anjemchoudary1967 and began posting on Monday. But within hours, Instagram's parent company Facebook moved to take the account down for violating its policies. It comes days after Choudary's accounts on Facebook and Twitter were 'permanently suspended for violating the rules' of its violent organisations policy. (I'm horrified he even managed to open accounts - I know people whose every subsequent attempt is blocked immediately)
The firebrand preacher began setting up online profiles two weeks ago after legal conditions that prevented him from speaking publicly expired on July 18.
But after they became void, Choudary joined a number of social networks.
He also began sending essays promoting Shariah Law to a network of Whatsapp contacts, where he promoted his Instagram account. 'Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah) I am now on instagram, feel free to follow me for updates on anjemchoudary1967,' he texted the group.
While active, his Instagram account showed a picture of him in glasses and another snap read: 'I bear witness that there is no Ilah (God/diety) except Allah (God Almighty). And I bear witness that Muhammad is his Slave and Messenger.'
In a 'press release' dated July 31, and titled 'The Call For Shariah Is Just being A Muslim', he said: 'It is essential today to question all of our beliefs and to ensure that they have a firm basis because decisions we make based upon our beliefs not only shape our own lives but also impact upon others.
As a Muslim my firm belief in Allah and in the finality of the Messenger Muhammad comes with it the acceptance of all the tenets of Islam encompassed in the Shari'ah.
'Sadly, due to the fact that not only are Muslims a minority in this country but also the fact that the majority of Muslims have had a secular education and have been indoctrinated with concepts which are an anathema to Islam and Muslims like, democracy freedom and liberalism, it is true that the majority of Muslims not only do not know what the Shari'ah or Islam is in terms of ruling and the economy etc*but they have also wholeheartedly adopted secularism and democracy instead. This has led many to unfortunately leave the fold of Islam and among them are also a vocal few who not only have abandoned Islam but have become propagandists for secularism and democracy!'
He went on to say that Muslims who reject Shariah law are effectively saying they do not want to obey Allah.
