Who is Majid Freeman, and the allegations towards him

To perceive who Majid Freeman is, we should journey again to 2013 when ISIS exercise was at its peak in Syria. In 2013, BBC aired a documentary concerning the “Aid for Syria” convoy which had “humanitarian organisations” and “activists” travelling to Syria to assist these affected by ISIS atrocities. BBC on the time hid the names of the charities concerned within the convoy – it was later revealed by analyst and scholar Sam Westrop that these charities had been One Nation, Al Fatiha Global, and Aid4Syria.

In 2013, when the Aid For Syria charity was being uncovered for its fundamentalist Islamist nature by a number of students, Majid Freeman was in Syria beneath this banner, with one other “aid worker” Alan Henning, who was later kidnapped and beheaded by ISIS. He was with Henning when he was kidnapped by ISIS, signifies stories.

Freeman spoke on the memorial service for Henning, calling him a fantastic man who helped when the worldwide group regarded away. However, in line with a Telegraph report, solely two weeks after the beheading, Freeman began posting messages supporting ISIS. In his Facebook submit, he requested for “dua” for a British ISIS terrorist Ifthekar Jaman who was charged with a Syrian terror plot. He additionally posted a video that primarily mentioned that ISIS was an inexpensive response to Western coverage and mentioned, “This brother hit the nail on the head”.

Majid Freeman, in line with the Telegraph report, has expressed assist for Al Qaeda terrorists calling them Shaheed, mentioned that Al Aqsa can be conquered by Jihad, and expressed sympathy and assist to the Al Qaeda cleric who incited terrorist assaults towards non-Muslims.

Interestingly, the Telegraph report additionally reveals that Freeman was questioned by the police however was not charged with any crime in relation to Aid4Syria.

Majid has, primarily, inspired European Muslims to “do jihad in Syria,” and has promoted “tributes” to the late Al Qaeda terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki on his Twitter and Facebook accounts – this screenshot was posted by Sam Westrop in his expose.

Majid Freeman and his hyperlinks with organisations related to Al Qaeda, IHH: Is there a PFI connection?

At the guts of this query, are three so-called charities that had been ‘working’ in Syria – Aid4Syria, Al Fatiha Global (Aid4Syria’s dad or mum organisation), IHH, Children in Deen and One Nation.

It is pertinent to notice that Majid Freeman was travelling within the humanitarian convoy to Syria together with these organisations and is personally concerned with others like One Nation and Aid4Syria.

Given the involvement of Majid Freeman within the violence towards Hindus in Leicester, the misinformation he unfold to instigate Muslims to focus on Hindus, and his terror-sympathising views and associations, one has to surprise if there may be extra to the violence than meets the attention. The proven fact that IHH was concerned within the Syrian convoy, of which Freeman was an element, and that IHH has cast an alliance with the banned radical Islamist organisation PFI in India which works explicitly towards Hindus (learn this imaginative and prescient doc to find out about their plans to show India Islamic and subjugate Hindus) raises way more questions than it solutions.
