Must Read – 'British Anti-Terrorism: A Modern Day Witch-hunt', new report by IHRC

Fahad Ansari revisits Britain\'s anti-terrorism policies a year after his report, \'Terror in the Name of Anti-Terrorism\'.

From Control Orders, proposals to ban HizbutTahrir and other Muslim organisations, new legislation and police powers, this report covers the gamut of the British government\'s latest anti-terrorism proposals.

This clear analysis not only makes the case that the government\'s anti-terrorist strategy violates basic human rights and curtails civil liberties, it powerfully argues, that it is also counter-productive.

Using case studies, Ansari relates in graphic detail how these proposals single out Muslims and the Muslim communities in Britain, equating it with a latter day witch-hunt.

A must read for all those concerned with the British government\'s new measures.

'British Anti-Terrorism: A Modern Day Witch-hunt', by Fahad Ansari, 102pp, ISBN: 1-903718-36-8 can be downloaded as a PDF file without charge from:

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
