It can arguably be found in this verse: “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.” (5:33)

I was radicalised by white liberals.” So what is the point that the BBC is trying to make? This: if we would all just submit to Sharia blasphemy laws, and stop criticizing Islam, then Muslims will be warm and cuddly and not wage jihad against us. And of course the BBC is right.
