9 sentenced for London terror plot

2012-02-09 22:49

London - A British judge has sent nine men to prison for plotting to set up a terrorist training camp and bomb the London Stock Exchange.

The British Muslims pleaded guilty last week.

Mohammed Chowdhury, 21; Shah Rahman, 28; Gurukanth Desai, 30; and Abdul Miah, 25, admitted planning to plant a home made bomb in the stock exchange toilets. Two others admitted lesser charges.

Woolwich Crown Court Judge Alan Wilkie sentenced the six men on Thursday to between five and 16 years.

Three others admitted planning to set up a terrorist training camp in Pakistan and were given "indeterminate," or open-ended, sentences.

The defendants were brought together through radical Islamist groups and nurtured plans to attack high-profile targets. They were arrested in December 2010.

      generalising again!

      Have you read the report, Ebadam? It says: "British Muslims pleaded guilty".

      ebadam - 2012-02-10 15:49

      these people don't constitute all the muslims. I don't condone their actions in any way...

    Peace loving Muslims again. And ebadam, since you don't condemn these bastards I assume you approve.

      Shamier - 2012-02-10 09:55

      Off point but ebadam was replying to Castle not the article.

      ebadam - 2012-02-10 15:50

      i disapprove... a few muslims doing wrong doesn't make all muslims wrong...

    They were born in the UK, so why all the fuss when that Norwegen guy went ballistic. BTW I do feel sorry for them. The west has treated most Muslim countries with distain and only want their oil. You too would go nuts if you were treated the same. Quite possible it can happen here due to AA and all that anc racist stuff

      You clearly have not read the Quran.

    Its amazing. These people hate the West, butwill do anything to live in a Western country.

      Fidel - 2012-02-10 10:19

      They are western citizens, born and bred there. Didn't you read the article, but jumped straight to the comment section, switching your fingers before your brain?

      Godfrey - 2012-02-10 11:47

      Yep. They queue up on the French side of the Channel Tunnel hoping to sneak into Britain. Can you name me one Muslim theocracy you would aspire to live in?

      Fidel - 2012-02-10 11:54

      I don't aspire to live anywhere else but on the land of my forefathers, so that I can slaughter and perform my tradions without any foreigner telling me how to behave in my own country and continent.

      Godfrey - 2012-02-10 13:48

      Fidel is a very angry person: constrained by culture and religious belief, feels threatened and aggrieved.

      Fidel - 2012-02-10 14:52

      I bow to no one for my dislike of western imperialism!

  • Ian - 2012-02-10 10:54

    wow, surprise , surprise. The freedom fighters are attacking england targets in england. You know the BBC always refers to these monsters as "freedom fighters" and genrally the brittish have kissed the a$$ses of the muslims for so long it is no wonder they feel safe to operate in the UK. I never wish to see anyone hurt , but it is about time the UK learned that " if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and looks like a duck, then its a blady DUCK" Time the UK stopped pussy footing around with these monsters based around the world and actually got tough on terror anywhere and everywhere it happens.

    @Fidel, I think you need to see a doctor quick, I think you jammed the keyboard up you a$$ and your colon is typing on your behalf, I understand that this is quite possible because it is closer to where your brain is .
