A Muslim convert who took part in vigilante patrols around the capital and called for 'Sharia state' in the UK has been barred from preaching in public by a new type of Asbo. Jordan Horner, who was part of a gang of fanatics that terrorised non-believers in the borough of Waltham Forest, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday to hear a raft of restrictions being placed on his liberty.
The court heard that the 20-year-old, who has connections to extremist groups and has distributed extremist literature in recent years, was a member of a Muslim group bent on creating a 'Sharia controlled zone', spreading leaflets and posters in east London.
The Waltham Forest Borough Commander, Chief Superintendent Mark Collins, said: "The granting of an Asbo against Jordan Horner sends a clear message that extremist behaviour will not be tolerated on our streets."
The restrictions, which last for five years, include bans on being in possession of a loudhailer in any public place and stepping foot on a university unless registered as a student. He is also barred from making unsolicited approaches to talk about Sharia law or distributing material that promotes Sharia law.
Horner is also banned from appearing in public with other extremists, including Anjem Choudary, Royal Barnes, Ricardo McFarlane and Dean Le Page.

Barnes, 23, of Hackney, east London, this week pleaded guilty to posting sickening videos on YouTube glorifying the horrific killing of Fusilier Lee Rigby. Barnes and wife Rebekah Dawson, 22, recorded and uploaded three videos shortly after the murder in Woolwich, south London, in May 2013.
In one of the videos posted under his account Musa Real Talks, Barnes hailed the murder as a "brilliant day" and in a follow-up he mocked the outpouring of public grief, laughing uncontrollably as he drove past floral tributes. He pleaded guilty to three counts of disseminating a terrorist publication and one of inciting murder during a hearing at the Old Bailey and is currently awaiting sentence.
