Muslim convert who agitated for sharia state in UK given groundbreaking asbo

Guardian: A Muslim convert who targeted members of the public as part of a campaign for a sharia state in Britain has been given a groundbreaking asbo, police have said.

Jordan Horner, 20, from northeast London has been ordered to stop preaching in public, in a legal first.

He had taken part in vigilante patrols and street protests promoting extreme versions of Islam in the city’s East End.

He is also thought to have distributed leaflets and posters advertising a “sharia controlled zone” in Waltham Forest, the Metropolitan police said.

Horner appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday, where a series of restrictions were imposed.

Among these was an order not to meet with Anjem Choudary, Royal Barnes, Ricardo McFarlane or Dean Le Page “except for peaceful worship inside a mosque or other Islamic cultural centre”.

Barnes, 23, of Hackney, east London, this week pleaded guilty to posting videos on YouTube glorifying the horrific killing of Fusilier Lee Rigby in May last year.

Barnes and his wife, Rebekah Dawson, 22, recorded and uploaded three videos shortly after the murder in Woolwich, south London.
