EXCLUSIVE: Jailing Brits for offending Muslims is SHOCKING, says Jon Holbrook

A BARRISTER cancelled by the Woke left has hit back at a suggestion that Brits could be jailed for offending Muslims branding the idea “shocking”. 

Legal expert Jon Holbrook was forced out of his chambers after a tweet, and the legal bigwig has told Politicalite that suggestions Brits could go to jail for offending Muslims is shocking.

Holbrook who is now representing UKIP as its Free Speech Spokesman said that Brits had “The right to speak freely”

“That must include the right to say things which offend others and if that right is met with a criminal sanction then we cease to be a free country.”

“The idea that Brits could go to jail for offending Muslims is shocking. Our liberal democracy is premised on free speech, no ifs and no buts.”

“The country is suffering from too many people with thin skins who are making it difficult for the majority to speak their mind.” added Holbrook. 

JAIL FOR MOCKING A RELIGION 

BRITS who mock Islam and the Prophet Mohammad could face the same fate as those who are racist towards Black people and could even end up in jail it is feared after a leading Government expert on Islamophobia remarked on the Batley school row.

Islamic Imam Qari Asim MBE, who is chair of the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board (MINAB), and the British Government’s adviser on Islamophobia, called for the “change in social attitudes”.

He also says that those who mock a religion should be treated like those who “use the ‘n-word’” in a plan that will obliterate the UK’s commitment to free speech and Western values.

The comments came as Jihadi protesters broke Corona and social distancing regulations to gather outside a school in which a Religious Education teacher mocked the Prophet, Mohammed. 

Imam Asim told The Telegraph: “I guess when we talk of a potential curb or limitation on free speech, I think that sets alarm bells ringing, leaving some people [wrongly] thinking that Muslims are asking for restrictions on free speech. “

“But I think what we should try and emphasise is that there’s already a phenomenon in place in that actually there are boundaries to free speech.

“Like, for instance, people cannot use the ‘n-word’ – and quite rightly so – because this is derogatory and causes deep pain and hurt.”
