Tommy Robinson’s personal website taken down

Tommy Robinson

The prominent Islamophobe Tommy Robinson has had his personal website taken down. 

“They have taken my site down. [The] establishment [is] trying everything to shut me up,” Robinson wrote in a Facebook post on Monday, adding that he is working to launch a new site.

The site is hosted by U.S. company Go Daddy.

Robinson, 36, whose real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is the co-founder and former leader of the English Defence League (EDL).

Robinson was sentenced in May to 13 months in prison on contempt of court charges for live-streaming members of an alleged grooming gang.

After his release on bail in early November, he bashed British courts and media for attempting to “silence and stop people having the knowledge” of “Muslim grooming gangs.”

Also in November, PayPal banned Robinson’s account and froze the donations he had received over accusations of him inciting hatred and promoting Islamophobia.

UKIP leader Gerard Batten named Robinson his adviser on grooming gangs and prison reform on 22 November.

Robinson has been a vocal critic of the mainstream media, accusing them of spreading lies and losing the support of the British public. His political career recently took a new turn after he was handed an advisory role in the UK Independence Party (UKIP).

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]
