A Muslim preacher has sparked controversy after asking for Britain’s Queen Elizabeth to convert to his faith.
Anjem Choudary claims the only way the 83-year-old monarch, who is head of the Church of England, will be sure of a place in heaven is if she becomes Muslim.
Choudary, who is close to Islamic radical Omar Bakri, also spoke out about the upcoming UK election, due to take place next year.
He said: “Britain does not need a new leader, it needs a revolution – an Islamic revolution.”
He also wants to see senior members of the Government switching faiths.
Choudary, a key henchman of rabble rousing cleric Omar Bakri, said: “We invite everyone from the Queen, to the ministers, to the Parliament, to the aristocracy, to the ordinary person in Britain to embrace Islam.
Labour MP Andrew Dismore said: “It’d be laughable if we didn’t know that some take this man seriously.” A Muslim group branded Choudary an “extremist nut”.
