BNP attacks Guardian for employing Hizb ut-Tahrir member

The BNP denounces the Guardian for “employing a trainee journalist who turns out to be a member of a militant Islamist organisation – Hizb ut-Tahrir. This radical group is banned in many western European countries but the Guardian happily allows their trainee to report from Leeds”.

Which rather overlooks the fact that yesterday the Guardian succumbed to pressure and sacked the trainee, Dilpazier Aslam, after a campaign (see here) by right-wing bloggers.
