The news came after the MCB complained to the British Army over soldiers posing with Britain’s right-wing activist Tommy Robinson.

Dr Daud Abdullah the former deputy director-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, faced calls for his resignation in 2009, after it emerged that he was one of 90 Muslim leaders who signed a public declaration in support of Hamas and military action.
Abdullah even led the MCB’s boycott of Holocaust Memorial Day, was a member of the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board, the body that endorsed the then Labour government.
In January 2009 he briefed the then home secretary, Jacqui Smith, and then communities secretary Hazel Blears.
