Muslim Found Guilty of Insult to UK's War Dead; Chanted in London: "British Soldiers Burn in Hell"

The News 24 website reports today (March 8, 2011) that a Muslim extremist who burned replica poppies -- a symbol of remembrance in Britain on Armistice Day -- was fined yesterday, after being found guilty of a public order offense.

Emdadur Choudhury, 26, a member of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), was found guilty of a "calculated and deliberate" insult to the war dead and those who honor their sacrifice.

District Judge Howard Riddle fined him 50 pounds and a 15-pound victim surcharge at the top-security Woolwich Crown Court in southeast London.

On November 11, 2010, MAC members chanted "British soldiers burn in hell" before an incident near the Royal Albert Hall concert venue in west London, the trial heard.
