Cardiff Muslim group Supporters of Tawheed denies extremism


The leader of a Muslim group which had its meeting in Cardiff raided by counter-terrorism officers last week, says, he wants an Islamic state in Britain.

But Abu Hajar told BBC Wales his group, Supporters of Tawheed, is peaceful not extremist and is not linked to terrorism but creating change by debate.

He said the meeting had been a study class and the police action was out of proportion.

South Wales Police said the action was motivated by real concern in Cardiff, particularly concerns from within the Muslim community.
