Summary: 

“Notorious extremist preached jihad on a UK-based Islamic TV channel on Sky and Virgin despite being under house arrest with restricted internet access” by Abul Taher and Duncan Gardham, Mail On Sunday, September 28, 2019:

An extremist preached jihad on a UK-based Islamic TV channel despite being under house arrest with restricted access to the phone and internet.

During one telethon to raise funds for Rohingya Muslims forced out of Burma, he argued that the way to help the refugees was by using violence rather than charity.

‘The solution brothers… we must go to jihad,’ he told the telethon presenters. ‘Part of the charity, we must go to jihad.’

The calls were made while the extremist, who can be identified only as IM for legal reasons, was subject to a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIM) order.
