Every mosque in Britain should be monitored to stop extremists ‘poisoning’ young people’s minds, a Muslim leader from the Black Country has said.
“Friday sermons should be monitored by the Home Office,” he said. “Any church in the UK would welcome people in on Sunday mornings. We should all be delivering a message of peace.
“If you go to a mosque you should be welcome, as you would be at ours. If there’s nothing to hide there should be nothing wrong with someone from the Home Office being there.”
He said: “This country is very gracious. It has given people the right to stay. But there are mullahs who have come here and brought a poisonous ideology with them.
“And now they are openly propagating that ideology which is so damaging to our youngsters.
“They are taking the benefits and facilities provided by this country to do harm.”
