The Islamophobe and ex EDL leader Tommy Robinson has written a book called “Mohammed’s Koran” which bills itself as an explanation of the Muslim holy book “for the ordinary man or woman.”
Although few details are available about the book yet, which appears to be self-published and is due to go on sale on Amazon next week, Robinson says it will explain why “Muslims kill for Islam.”
He adds: “This is decoding the Koran. Putting it in chronological order.”
Robinson, who has no academic credentials or expertise on Islam and does not speak Arabic, is one of Britain’s most prominent critics of Islam and “Muslim extremists.”
He is the co founder and former spokesman and leader of the right-wing English Defence League. He led the EDL from 2009 until 8 October 2013, when he was persuaded to leave the organisation and discuss alternative ways of tackling extremism with the think tank Quilliam.
In 2015 he became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegida organisation, presenting a stated purpose to counter the “Islamisation of our countries.”
On 28 November 2012, Robinson was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by misrepresentation in relation to a mortgage application. He pleaded guilty to two charges and on 23 January 2014 was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
As you’re here…
5Pillars have one humble request from you…
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
