Funding Jaimsh e Muhammed From the UK While on Benefits

The News of the World has a breaking investigative journalism piece in which an undercover reporter reveals a terror funding ring. The leader, Mohammed Nawaz Raja, lives in a mansion but also collects the dole! From the story by Mazher Mahmood:

The evil godfather of terror claims to have sent them hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Incredibly Nawaz, who owns a five-bedroom £350,00 house, is himself being funded by the taxpayer.

He pockets £250-a-week in handouts — and boasts: “I’m a British national. The government pays me to live.”

And referring to his “charity” he adds chillingly: “We are supporting a lot of jihad (holy war) organisations. They need our support. They have to buy weapons!”

We nailed Nawaz, his ‘treasurer’ Mohammed Shakeel Akhtar (above right), and his shifty accountant after a perilous three-month investigation by an undercover team of reporters.

If you are wondering who Jaimsh e Muhammed is, here’s a link with several posts here referencing them.
