BNP man 'videoed burning Koran in garage' arrested and charged

Police in Wales are now enforcing the Islamic edict that there shall be no disrespect to the Koran.  From what I can make from this article, Sion Owens, a BNP member videoed the burning of a copy of the Koran and distributed it, privately, to some other members.  Somehow a copy of the video was given to the police and Mr. Owens was arrested without any formal charges being stated. 

The Welsh police have made the usual PC noises about intolerance:

‘We always adopt an extremely robust approach to allegations of this sort and find this sort of intolerance unacceptable in our society.’

It's truly unfortunate that the Welsh police have not taken similar action against countless Muslims who have called outright for the violent overthrow of the British people. 

One can only conclude that for whatever reasons: cowardice; political power; collusion or hidebound adherence to multiculturalism the Welsh police and the Home Office are in fact enforcing Sharia law against British subjects without benefit of formal charges.  If certain leftist politicians in America have their way, American police will be arresting citizens for unpopular speech against the Islamic invasion of the US.


BNP man 'videoed burning Koran in garage' arrested and charged

A senior member of the British National Party has been arrested for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran in his garage.

Sion Owens, a BNP candidate in the forthcoming Welsh Assembly elections, was charged under the Public Order Act.

He was said to have soaked the Islamic holy book in kerosene, set fire to it and watched it burn. Footage was then apparently circulated among extremists.

The alleged act, considered highly offensive to Muslims, comes after dozens died last week in riots fuelled by a similar Koran-burning incident in America.

U.S. pastor Terry Jones – who caused an outcry when he threatened to burn the holy text last year – supervised as his assistant went through with the stunt at his church in Florida late last month.

It triggered a wave of bloody anti-American protests which included the beheading of two United Nations workers in Afghanistan.

The alleged incident involving the BNP is believed to be the first time anything similar has happened in Britain. However, police had feared far-right extremists might attempt to emulate the Mr Jones’s actions.

Owens, 41, who previously stood for a council seat and has been pictured with BNP leader Nick Griffin, was unveiled last week as the party’s candidate for the South Wales West constituency.

Last night, the Home Office ‘absolutely condemned’ the Koran-burning incident.

 A statement said: ‘It is fundamentally offensive to the values of our pluralist and tolerant society.’
