In 2006, the Daily Mail linked the terror-linked mega mosque (Markazi Masjid) of the Deobandis and Tablighi Jamaat in Dewsbury (UK) to the 7/7 bombers who committed terrorist atrocities in London. “The mosque is run by Tablighi Jamaat, a radical Islamic movement believed by intelligence agencies to be a fertile source for recruiting young extremists,” the report stated.

In 2006, the Times stated: “Several of the suspects arrested in August over the alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners had attended meetings of Deobandi Tablighi Jamaat, which French intelligence has labelled an ‘antechamber of fundamentalism’. The FBI says it is a fertile breeding ground for al-Qaeda.”

In 2007, the Times reported: “One of the suicide bombers who attacked London in July 2005, Shehzad Tanweer, studied at the Deobandi seminary in Dewsbury and Mohammad Sidique Khan, the leader of the 7/7 terror plot, was a regular worshipper at the adjoining mosque. Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, was said to have been influenced by Tablighi Jamaat, several of whose adherents were also among those arrested last year over an alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners.”

A Telegraph article from 2006 calls Tablighi Jamaat the ‘Army of Darkness’ and said of the group: “…with increasing and alarming frequency, the name of Tablighi Jamaat is cropping up in the worldwide fight against terrorism.” Tablighi Jamaat is mostly a Deobandi radcial phenomenon and is rejected by peaceful Sunni Sufi, Sunni Barelvi and Shia Muslims.

“Several of those arrested on August 9 in connection with the alleged plot to blow up airliners en route from Britain to America, had attended Tablighi study sessions in Britain.” “The group’s ideal of a world governed by an ultra-conservative, neo-medievalist form of Islam, in which women are subservient and all laws and customs are based on religious dictates, is barely distinguishable from the wish lists of al-Qaeda and the Taliban.”

“In Britain, the group is run from the 3,000-capacity Markazi Mosque in Dewsbury – built with funds from Saudi Arabia – which also functions as Tablighi Jamaat’s European headquarters. Signs around it warn: ‘Photography prohibited. Unauthorised persons not allowed. Trespassers will be prosecuted’.”
