As Theresa May continues her crusade to establish the ideal neocon police state, Muslims took to social media to express their frustration at the Government's latest Orwellian policy.
Speaking to me from Pakistan via Skype, a British-born man claims his family are victims of the UK's secret courts, after he and his three sons were stripped of their citizenship in 2011 for alleged links to Al Qaeda and a banned Pakistani terror group.
Whilst there is absolutely no justification for the killing of women and children in Islam, Muslim leaders have made the all-too-common mistake of apologising and condemning a crime which was not carried out in the name of religion. Rather, the unfortunate event that occurred was as a result of an ongoing cycle of violence that began in 2001.

With such harsh intolerance towards Islam under the façade of preventing extremism, this will no doubt have a knock-on effect on community cohesion and how Muslims are perceived by the wider non-Muslim public.
It was a night I'll remember. I liked Tuhin and their brother-in-law, and my last visit reassured me why I chose to maintain a relationship with the Jamans despite the community's negativity towards them. I had developed a brotherly relationship with the boys, I saw their mother as my own mother, and after my in-laws' house, the Jamans' was where I felt most at home when I visited Portsmouth.
The poppy hijab is a counterproductive and patronising campaign, which singles out Muslims as being a suspect community whose allegiance lies elsewhere. Many British Muslims do put their religion before their nationality but that doesn't make them any less integrated.
British soldiers have died, arguably in vain, as the Taliban are stronger now than ever before, and remains a de-facto government in many provinces. Furthermore, the world has become a more dangerous place as a result of Tony Blair and George Bush's war on terror.
