This week marked the 11th anniversary of the day that changed our lives forever. On 2 December 2003, my son Babar Ahmad was accused by the Metropolitan Police of being an al-Qaeda terrorist, an allegation made after officers brutally assaulted him and mocked his religion.

I have read Sadiq Khan MP's article from last week several times and am still dumbfounded by it. His criticism of Babar Ahmad and Syed Talha Ahsan's extradition to the U.S. to face terror charges is wildly misguided.

The last time I briefly spoke to my former schoolmate Talha was just after we completed our A-Level exams in the summer of 1998 at the prestigious private school Dulwich College in southeast London. After spending nearly six years in a British jail awaiting extradition to America on terrorist charges, Syed Talha Ahsan has now faced extradition to America after losing his appeal at the European Court of Human Rights, alongside four other terrorist suspects including the radical preacher Abu Hamza.

When the time comes to place an 'X' on our ballot paper, Babar Ahmad's face and the failure of the coalition government to stand up for British citizens should consecutively run through our minds.

Extradition; A Sad Day for Us All

Babar Ahmad, Talha Ahsan and even Abu Hamza have rights. The demonisation of Abu Hamza has clouded the entire extradition process in the media. Abu Hamza, although outspoken, vociferous and vilified by the media has been used to cover up the injustice that has taken place here.

Last week, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that six alleged terror suspects could face extradition to the United States. While extensive media coverage have been given to Abu Hamza, who has been convicted of soliciting to murder and stirring up racial hatred and jailed in the UK for seven years, the voices of Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan were almost silent.

No legal case in recent times has created as many strong feelings and controversy in Britain as that of Babar Ahmad. Whilst some of our senior politicians have expressed their delight at this verdict, this case raises serious questions about the fairness of justice in Britain.

Babar Ahmad, Extradition and the Rights of British Citizens

It is not so much Babar Ahmad's guilt or innocence as his right to a trial within the UK that is at question: something the current US-UK treaty does not seem to permit. Ahmad's extradition looks likely to proceed unless the British government intervenes.
