Conference About Establishing Islamic Caliphate In Britain Held In London

A conference entitled "Khilafah for Britain" was held last Friday at a venue near Euston Road in London. The conference was organized by "Hizb-ut-Tahrir" in cooperation with "Islam For The U.K." - another extremist group that campaigns to bring Islamic law to Britain.

The organizers produced a short promotional video for the conference that showed the Big Ben tower with Arabic numbers on the clock face. Black and white Islamic banners reading "there is no God but God and Muhammad is his Prophet" were also shown waving on top of the tower.

Several Muslim clerics addressed the conference which was attended by over 2500 people, including Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed, the former leader of Al Muhajiroun who made his speech from Lebanon via an internet link.

A DVD of the conference is expected to be released in the next few days.
