Sept 07, 2016: The most hated man as called by Britain has been jailed for 5 1/2 years since he urged support for ISIS.

Anjem Choudhary has been  the most hated man and he has always been a controversial person. Choudary was sentenced at the Old Bailey in London after his conviction in July of urging Muslims to support Isis in a series of talks posted on YouTube. He was convicted alongside his acolyte Mohammed Rahman, 33, who was also sentenced to five years and six months in prison. Choudary’s supporters in the public gallery shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) as the judge finished sentencing.His supporters in the public gallery shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as he was led out of the courtroom after the sentencing. Counting time served in custody, he could be out by early 2019.

Choudary and Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 33, were found guilty on July 28 of inviting support for the Islamic State between June 29, 2014, and March 6, 2015. Rahman received the same sentence after the four-week trial.

Justice Timothy Holroyde said”You are both mature men and intelligent men who knew throughout exactly what you were doing. You are both fluent and persuasive speakers,” And also called Rahman a “hothead” and Choudary more “calculating” and more experienced.

Sue Hemming, head of counter-terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service”Those who invite others to support such organizations will be prosecuted and jailed for their crimes.”
