Thousands of demonstrators marched in London today over the tax affairs of Prime Minister David Cameron which were revealed as part of the leak of the Panama Papers.

The protest started around 11:00 local time (UTC+1) on Whitehall opposite the police-guarded entrance to Downing Street, the Prime Minister’s official residence. Just after 11:00, protesters blocked traffic on the northbound carriage in Whitehall. At 11:20, the police asked the protesters to move back on to the pavement, stating that they needed to balance the right to protest with the traffic building up. Around 11:29, the protest moved up Whitehall, past Trafalgar Square, along the Strand, passing by Aldwych and up Kingsway towards Holborn where the Conservative Party were holding their Spring Forum in the Grand Connaught Rooms hotel.

The protest was organised after it was revealed that David Cameron has profited from offshore investments held by his father, Ian, that were organised in part by Mossack Fonseca, the Panama-based law firm whose communications were recently published.

Muslim Council of Britain’s affiliate Khatm-e-Nabuwat calls for killing of Ahmadiyya Muslims

The controversy surrounding the murder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Asad Shah has taken another surprising turn. After the murder Muslim Council of Britain released a statement reaffirming their stance that Ahmadis are not Muslims. The MCB is affiliated with ‘Khatm e Nabuwat‘ an anti-Ahmadiyya organization responsible for distributing hate leaflets in London which called for the death of Ahmadi Muslims. 

The leaflets which are undersigned by the Aalmi Majlis-e-Tahafuze KhatmeNabuwat (AMTKN) of Stockwell Green were distributed at several London locations and have been obtained by IBTimes UK.

MCB affiliate KhatmeNabuwat describes itself as “an international, religious preaching and reform organization.”

According to the website the organization arranges conferences in UK on the belief that Prophet Muhammad is the last Prophet. These conferences specifically target Ahmadiyya sect of Islam which believes that their founder was a Prophet whose coming was foretold by the Prophet Muhammad himself. For this belief the Ahmadiyya Muslims are branded as heretics and apostates by groups like Khatm-e-Nabuwat. AMTKN website states that anyone who does not believe that Prophet Muhammad is the last Prophet should be killed.

A Khatm e Nabuwat related Facebook page also celebrated the murder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Asad Shah who was killed by a Dawat-e-Islami member in Gasgow.

The AMTKN website describes how their preaching activities are not limited just to Pakistan but are spread over different countries including the UK

“Aalmi Majlis Tahaffuz Khatm-e-Nubuwwat arranges preaching and reform trips and conferences in many countries of the world e.g. U.K, U.S and Africa etc.”

AMTKN publishes a weekly “Khatm-e-Nubuwwat” magazine from Karachi and a monthly “Laulak” magazine from Multan. Both of these magazines are filled with extremist content and both have published rulings that anyone who “disrespects Prophet Muhammad” should be killed. The same reasoning and words used by Tanveer Ahmad, the killer of Asad Shah.

AMTKN’s monthly magazine Laulak specifically mentionsanti-Ahmadiyya laws of Pakistan and declares Ahmadiyya belief to be heresy which should be punished with death. Another edition of monthly Laulak references a book chapter that details the success KhatmeNabuwat has had in the UK. The book titled “Ehtsabe Qadiyanyat” which translates into “Holding Qadianis (Ahmadis) Accountable” was published by AMTKN in 2009.

AMTKN’s weekly “Khatm e Nabuwat” magazine which is published from Karachi, Pakistan declares that any one who leaves Islam to become “Qadiani” (Ahmadi) is WajibulQatal (should be killed).

Meanwhile their Facebook page lists that “Khatm e Nabuwat is protection of Islam, and that is the biggest Jihad, anyone who dies fighting for this is a Martyr.” Another one of AMTKN’s Facebook post declares that “All Qadianis (Ahmadis) are Blasphemers like Slaman Rushdie”.
