Allah-hu-akhbar chant illegally played during Christian event set off terrorist panic but is being ignored by Redbridge Council





While Christians celebrated the birth of Christ in Ilford Town Centre on Saturday 16th December 2017, after having applied for permission with Redbridge Facilities Management, a local Islamic group caused a panic by playing the Azan (a Muslim chant used for call of prayer), that triggered fears of an impending terrorist attack.

The peaceful family event which was held in Ilford Town centre on Saturday was organised by 9 local churches in collaboration, and was both well attended and appreciated by local residents (click here). However at around 2pm during a prayer that was being said on the stage, a guttural Muslim chant was heard causing alarm to the many Christians and non-Christians attending the event.

It was soon established that a local Muslim group had decided to hold a religious stall in the town centre at the same time as the Redbridge Christian festival, if not in spite of it.

When approached by the British Pakistani Christian Association, who organised the Christian event the Islamic group refused to stop the chant being played. However, the provocative use of amplified Muslim chanting offended other local people many who were non-Christian and included local Muslims. Despite a clear indication that their use of an unauthorised PA was causing offence the Muslim group continued their use of the equipment.

When asked if they had sought permission for their event through the council the Islamic group originally said yes. They then later asked Mr Wilson Chowdhry, the event manage for the Christian event, if he was from the council. After Mr Chowdhry explained that he was not a Council officer but had applied for permission to use a PA system in the town centre the Islamic group ignored any further conversation

Due to the natural affront and the nature of exhibited fears by members of the public Wilson Chowdhry, a Director of A.A. Security Ltd, called the local police, who talked with the individuals involved with the Islamic stall. They allowed the men to continue with the stall but stopped the fractious amplified Muslim chanting which they deemed to be in poor taste.

 


It would seem bizarre but not impossible that the council gave permission to the Islamic group to hold their stall and amplified Muslim prayers at the same time as the local Churches Christmas event. So on Monday 18th December Wilson Chowdhry sought clarification from the Head of Licensing for Redbridge Council Mr Ed Chaplin.

Mr Chaplin has quite categorically confirmed the local Islamic group had not sought any permissions and that the unauthorised use of a PA System by them will be discussed at an enforcement action, tasking team next week . He wrote in an email:


"The 'stall' and group depicted in your photograph below are not given consent from the council to undertake this activity. Consents from the Council are either for a commercial event such as those run by Amber Markets, or for the use of the 'Community Pitch' for charitable, educational or similar purposes. Political, religious, or other groups/persons wishing to deliver a (democratic) message, sometimes set up in the Town Centre without any such consent. There is a risk of being moved on by Police, or contravening the Highways Act for obstructing the highway, where there is no consent or licence issued by the Council.


"Any group is free to apply for and be granted consent to use the town centre facilities. Allocation of consents is on a first-come, first served basis and consents will not be given when the infrastructure is at capacity. This is to ensure public safety. As advised in point 1) above, any party may set up an activity, but there is a risk that police will ask them to 'move on' or prosecute for highway obstruction. If a group contravenes legislation (such as the use of loudspeakers) this may be dealt with by the respective authorities."


As we discussed, I am forwarding the issues you have raised for discussion and any necessary enforcement action to the Council's weekly Tasking meeting which will take place tomorrow."

Mr Chowdhry was left confused and disturbed by the Council's response. he felt serious safety issues were still being ignored by Redbridge Council and potentially many other councils across the country. Speaking to a local Pastor he discovered that Churches were applying for permission meaning that they had to plan their public events weeks in advance.  It would seem only Muslim groups turn up unannounced meaning hate preachers could target communities with consummate ease.  Worse still the lack of applications meant that groups that do subvert the law and use such stalls for recruiting are relatively untraceable especially those that choose to practice without an labels for their groups.  It's a dangerous scenario to ignore.


Recently on the front page of the Ilford Recorder a Police whistleblower told Redbridge Council to take anti-terror warnings more seriously, yet they seem to be heeding none of the warnings (click here).

Wilson Chowdhry, explained why he felt warnings were being ignored, he said:

"Firstly I am shocked that BPCA were not informed that we would be sharing the town centre with a Muslim group during a Christian event even though this could be deemed a security risk or at least a potential risk to be assessed. Moreover, the Muslim group who used their PA system in Ilford Town Centre have been observed previously using the equipment without permission. Strangely enough whilst our Christian event was going on a licensing officer was in the town centre and did not think it was a problem that two PA's were on at the same time.

"Such negligence was always going to cause some conflict and an immediate review of Redbridge Council's policy for use of the town centre is paramount. 

"Ilford is a town with known terrorists links, all three of the assassins involved in the London Bridge Terror attack were seen meeting at Ummah Gym on Ilford Lane that was known to be training jihadists. I myself and other local people reported this over two years ago (click here) .


"This is also the 'wonderful borough' were Anjem Choudary one of this countries most evil and vile hate preachers resided, he is currently serving a term in jail for inciting hatred.


"With the fear that non-Muslim event organisers already feel in these times of heightened social polarity it does not make any sense for Redbridge Council to allow a Muslim group to hold a stall in Ilford town centre parallel to a Christian event - worse still it's completely daft to allow amplified chanting of Allah-hu-akhbar a phrase that terrifies many non-Muslims. It flies in the face of common-sense and is a painful reminder of the political correctness that is marginalising non-Muslims in the UK.


"Are the council and local police not aware that more often then not Muslim communities state they do not know the extremists in their midst? Even family members of proven Islamists have indicated they are surprised and cannot believe that their accused family member held such radical views. One example is the family of Salman Abedi the Islamist involved in the Manchester bombing - his family thought he was 'normal'(click here).

So how is it possible for the Mosques or Islamic groups in Redbridge to know for certain a man involved on their stall is not a terrorist. With this in mind is it not dangerous to permit cross-purpose amplified religious events on the same day in our town centre? Does this not simply create trigger points for further extremist attacks?

ISIS and the Taliban have called for their followers to target Christmas Markets across the UK (click here).

A day after the response from the Council news of a thwarted attack made the organisers of the Christian event realise just how real this extremist threat is (click here). Especially as whilst the Christian concert was on one of London's largest Christmas Markets was taking place at the same time. The use of the PA system to amplify the words Allah-hu-Akbar may well have been a ploy to frighten residents of Ilford especially during a Christian concert and the impact of this fear mongering should not be ignored.

Mr Chowdhry, added:


"I know of no Christian group that would hold a Christian stall at the local Eid in the park event, it makes no sense and is quite disrespectful. I have attended the event with Muslim friends just to share their joy it was rewarding for me. I have also enjoyed the company of Muslim friends at all the BPCA Christian events including Redbridge Easter Parade that actually had Muslim volunteers.

"However, the attack on Finsbury Park mosque and the rise of groups like the EDL, Pegida, and Britain First reminds us that polarisation is increasing and we must be more sensible with the make-up of events planned within town centres across the UK. A situation that has obviously not yet registered with Redbridge Council or our local police yet."


Mr Chowdhry added:


Quillam Foundation a UK based Muslim NGO recently uncovered alarming statistics that suggest that 84% of people convicted in grooming gangs since 2005 were Asian. They say hundreds of Muslim youth are being radicalised on British soil every year. This is not a subject we can brush under the carpet.


"There is growing evidence that community cohesion in the north of England is at it's lowest ebb, with an attack on an innocent Pakistani Christian Tajamal Amar, who was beaten till unconscious for displaying poppies and a cross from his car (click here) .


"Recently Nikki Hurst (real name protected) was attacked by a gang of youths she believes to be Muslim, for being a white Kaffir (click here).


"Nissar Hussain a Christian man who converted from Islam was persecuted for 17 years in Bradford and was told by Bradford police that he had to flee the city to preserve his life -they could not protect him. He was given a four vehicle police entourage when he returned to collect a box from his home, a security precaution filmed by ITV Calendar (click here).

 
"I hope the same radicalisation does not enter our borough, however Redbridge Council and our local Police really do need to wake up to the frictions that exist in communities and the potential for that to erupt into something more devastating.

"I am very aware that not every Muslim is an extremist and in fact I held a peace concert in Ilford town centre, collaborating with people of all faith just after the Finsbury Park attack. The event was featured in most of our local media (click here) .


"However, that does not negate from the fact that in a town centre environment during a Christian concert a load shout of Allah-hu-Akhbar would cause obvious terror, especially when played during a quieter point during a Christian prayer at an event put on by churches.

When I approached the Muslim organisers they seemed not to have any time for us. They did not even favour us by looking at us but stared into space when talking to us as if we did not exist or were inconsequential. This suggests that the Muslim group considered us 'Kaffir' (Infidel) and believed we should be under the yoke of dhimmitude (Islamic subservience). Such hardline approaches to Islam, fills me with great dread for the future of the Borough I live in.

"A former Muslim who lost his faith because of a mosque that was preaching hatred has had to flee his home in Ilford previously, his story hit the headlines. If these men are teaching a similar aggressive form of Islam it could be very detrimental to the cohesion of our community. Anjem Choudary must have resided in this borough for a reason yet neither the police nor the council feel it is their responsibility to vett the religious groups out in our town centre.

I am sure the local Chistian groups and churches would not mind a vetting process being introduced for those wishing to participate in our town centre and would obligingly fulfil all requirements. For the safety of us all I think it is something that must be fashioned with haste. To expedite the process I will be raising the issue at a full council meeting to see what can be done to ensure groups operating in our town centre are bona fide and espouse a spirit of unity rather then hate.  I will also raise the Issue with the two local MP's as this issue may require new legislation.  I am not favouring the introduction of draconian laws that restrict our freedom of speech, but feel in these times where Islamic extremism is a quantifiable and qualifiable concern that we must be more vigilant in protecting vulnerable minds to the whims of predators like Anjem Choudary and other hate preachers.

I will also be writing to the SIA and seek additions to the training of security officers that provides improved guidance on the laws that restrict hate speech, that govern use of amplified sound in town centres and that relate to the maintenance of local peace, so that event security officers are more equipped to deal with concerns of this nature and are aware of the laws that can be implemented, towards the purpose of 

Mr Chowdhry explained why he called the police, he said:

"I felt the need to call the police as the chanting was causing upset amongst Christians who notified me of the concern whilst I was on stage. When I approached the Muslim group many non-Christians also asked for the Muslim group to desist with the amplified Islamic chants - they too were totally offended. To be honest when I first heard the sound I was filled with a moment of extreme terror and anxiety - it was a blood curdling moment.


"The incident caused a blemish on what otherwise was a wonderful public event that was attended well and was favoured by the local community."
 

On Sunday 17th December a bomb attack at a church in Quetta during a children's nativity play took the lives of at least 8 Christians and injured over 32 others, mainly women and children (click here). Mr Chowdhry believes this is evidence that the religious celebrations of Christians cause great offence to many increasingly radicalised Muslims.

Pakistani Christian Hero Security Officer saves drunken man from committing suicide off highway bridge



Haroon Yousaf on duty at Ardleigh Green

A security officer from an Ilford based company was involved in a remarkable life saving incident whilst on a patrol in Romford, when he prevented a drunken and depressed man from jumping off Ardleigh Bridge over the A127. He is being hailed as a super hero by management staff from the engineering company who are coordinating the bridge replacement project, for his quick thinking and calmness in a very difficult situation.

Haroon Yousaf who has been employed by A. A security for over 9 years is a committed and hard-working individual who rarely misses a shift when healthy. Although he has been suffering for some time with a painful cyst in his stomach region he bravely endures his work without complaint.

During the early hours of Saturday 25th November, whilst patrolling around the current Ardleigh Bridge, Haroon noticed a man with one leg planted on the bridge and another leg dangling from the other side of the bridge, it was clear to haroon the man was attempting to jump off the bridge.

Despite having never dealt with a potential suicide on his shift before, Haroon swiftly followed protocol for the site. He first contacted

the other security officer on site a Mr Ahmed and asked him to contact our control centre, whilst he kept the man committing suicide engaged.

Mr Ahmed than contacted A.A. Security control centre who asked Ahmed to immediately contact the police and to inform the senior operative for the engineering clients at the site, of the emergency.

In the meanwhile Haroon Yousaf, described how he kept the the man attempting suicide from jumping, he said:

"I tried to make the man think of positive things in his life, I asked him if he had any family and explained that his death would cause them great panic. I told him despite how he feels at the moment family and friends love him and need you in their lives so that together you strengthen one another.

"I also told him about how God had saved me from great depression after my mother passed away and it seemed to work he calmed down and started to listen to me."

"Something changed however and at one point he just started to shout expletives at me, but I ignored him. I told him it was fine to vent his frustration at me just as long as it helped him calm down."

When Mr Ahmed his security partner and several men arrived on the bridge behind Haroon he used gestures and his eyes to ask two of them to go to the other side.

Two employees from our clients crossed the road but not before they had placed cones on the road, preventing any traffic from getting to an area where a potential jump or fall from the man attempting suicide, might cause additional deaths or injuries.

Once the site foreman got o the other side he and Haroon exchanged looks, Haroon kept the attention of the man they were attempting to save by talking and looking at him, when the foreman ran to grab the man from around his waist from behind, Haroon followed up and grabbed the man from the front. Together the two man pulled him away from danger and held him to the ground until the police arrived.

Mr Ahmed returned to the site immediately and called the A. A. Security control centre as soon as the man was safe. He also immediately began to write up the Incident report, ensuring that it was kept for evidence purposes.

When an A.A. Security Services response team arrived on site they asked if Haroon wanted to remain on site or leave with full pay and Haroon decided to remain. His commitment to A.A. Security has been labelled as 'unrelenting and total' by Director Juliet Chowdhry.

Wilson Chowdhry, Director of A.A Security Ltd, said:

"The intelligence and foresight of Haroon Yousaf has to be complimented. Not only did his quick thinking save a drunken man from committing suicide that may well have simply been a momentary depressive state related to the drink, but his actions also saved many others who could have been involved in a very dangerous vehicle incident and consequential collisions.

"His recall of our company protocol and the investment we put into training him effectively helped guide his actions in what was a tremendously brave and well coordinated reaction to a new and very dangerous situation. It proves that inward investment can really yield professional dividend.

"The manner in which our security operatives and our client operatives teamed up to save so many people is simply a textbook delivery of life saving services."

Together Stronger - Peace vigil builds stronger community preserving our security and safety



With less then 24 hours till an important peace vigil in Ilford A.A. Security Ltd were asked to produce a security and risk survey and then to protect the event.  

 

Ilford has been subjected to several police raids as part of the London Bridge terrorist attacks with several suspects arrested. Local religious and community groups organised this vigil in collaboration, to remember the innocent lives lost and condemn the brutal attacks. It is their hope that the solidarity shown will be a beacon of hope to all and a chance to restore peace and local morale.

A large leaflet drop of 5000 flyers promoting the event were distributed in areas where terror suspects were arrested in police raids following the terrible London Bridge attack.  Moreover the event was held only days after a retaliatory attack on Muslims who had completed prayers at a mosque in Finsbury park.

As part of the security plan A.A. Security ensured that police and other statutory services were notified of the gathering. This included redbridge licensing team and the CCTV central office.

 Not knowing what type of reception an event like this would have it was agreed that we would use our close protection services for the key religious figures involved in the event.  Four visible security officers were also involved in protecting the event by way of controlling access to the town hall steps and ensuring that visitors were mustered into areas that were agreed and provided reassurance to participants at the rear of the event and a community interface.

The event was held without any untoward incidents and has been hailed as a success by the Council and other bodies.

Now we at A. A. Security feel we can say we have contributed to the wider safety and security of the people of London and wider in the UK.

A.A. Security honours martyr Police officer PC Keith Palmer at peace concert



On the 22nd April 2017, A.A. Security was privileged to be chosen to Event plan and protect a peace concert held before 10 Downing Street for slain national hero PC Keith Palmer.

Mr Palmer gave his life protecting Londoners during an attack in the capital on 22nd March 2017, that killed 6 people and injured over 80 more.

British Pakistani Christian Association collaborated with minority faith leaders from across the country to hold a 'London Against Extremism' rally in honour of PC Keith Palmer, one month after the terrible attack.  Invited guests included Imam Dr Taj Hargey, Nazi Holocaust Survivor Dr Martin Stern, Ranbir Singh of the Hindu Human Rights Group and Alan Craig Christian Campaigner to name but a few.  To make things difficult a procession to the Policeman's memorial at Pall Mall also had to be organised where a wreath of flowers was to be laid.


Due to the current risk state of 'severe threat' our Director Wilson Chowdhry had to meet with Senior Police Officers to devise a safety plan and emergency plan.  We held little hope that the plans would be approved as it is extremely rare that such events are approved in the wake of acts of terror such as the Westminster Attack.

By ensuring the plans were comprehensive and liaising with the Police at every juncture we gained approval for the event.

Hundreds joined the successful event which completed without incident.

Wilson Chowdhry, Managing Director of A.A. Security Ltd, said:

"Planning this event required a number of skills.  We had to risk profile visitors and risk assess the event ensuring that an emergency plan and Security Plan was in place and an exit strategy ready to be utilised should things go wrong.

"Due to the financial limitations of the lead group we had to ensure that all of the above could be produced without excessive costs for our clients. 

"The vent was successful and so I guess we did our job right.  Now we are ready to provide the same quality of service for other clients."

Ilford Town Centre security beefed up during Easter Market



As Easter draws in many Borough's incorporate specialist markets to increase trade and commerce into their town centres. 

Markets bring in a variety of new products and particularly niche items that enhance local shopping experience.

One such market in the Redbridge Easter Market which ran from 10th April to 13th April 2017.  Their hours of operation are from 12:00 - 17:00 and included a bedding stall, mens and womens fashion stall, a variety of food stalls, face painting and much more. 

The organizers hope to introduce a regular one week market in future months.

Breaking down and reconstructing a market is a timely and effort-driven process and most stallholders fear their vulnerable physical constructs, provide little protection for the valuable products and equipment they store inside.    Moreover the marquees themselves are prone to vandalism.

This is were A.A. Security came in...

As a security provider with over 24 years experience and with our head office based only a few seconds from Ilford Town Centre, we were of course a first choice provider for security for the venue.

Our evening security officer patrolled the centre every 30 mins and reported several crimes that would usually go unreported, such as the applying of stickers on railing and streetlights by women who ply their trade at night.

We also received confirmation from our clients that our security efforts noticeably reduced crime in the town centre.

Joel Kyari, one of the organizers for the event said:

"A.A. Security were amazing.  Not one stallholder experienced any loss or damage.  Moreover local Police have informed us that they had the quietest evening streets in the town centre for the duration of our event.  

"Apparently having a visible security deterrent reduces crime fairly significantly.  Our choice of security provider and our quality of market traders has developed a high level of appreciation and we are confident that we will secure a license for a more permanent market.

"Great praise is deserved by A.A. Security for their sterling work that has enabled to fulfill our objectives."

British hooligans wreak havoc in local pubs!



 


Britain has a bad quite embarrassing history of football hooliganism.  Fortunately FIFA noticed that the hooliganism in France during the recent Euro 2016 campaign was triggered by Russian hooligans.  Besides their behaviour was captured by many media groups. 

However, this does not exempt us from the realization that such violence is a problem here in the UK too.

For years property owners have been scared to walk out of the door if their own home town team loses.  Fearful that over inebriated fans will take out their anger on the innocent homeowner.  

More than 100,000 English and Welsh fans travelled to the Champions League and Europa League matches outside of England and Wales.  British fans were amongst the worst behaved fans during these tournaments.  Moreover in pubs and other locations showing these football matches across the UK crime stats increased dramatically after a loss and sometimes during a win due to over exuberance.

AA Security can protect your properties in the UK.  Whether it is through a deterrent such as a CCTV installation,  Uniformed security officers around vacant or operational properties during a time of heightened excitement, or door supervisors in your pubs and clubs, we can provide the necessary expertise to reduce, report and respond to crimes of this nature.

England are about to embark into the knockout stages of the Euro 2016 finals.  The games will get harder and if history repeats itself we could be in for some disappointment soon.  Don't get caught unawares make sure you have the right security for your situation.

If You Had £1000 Would You Keep Your Door Open



 

 

In a perfect world security would be provided by good faith and words but reality shows sometimes security needs a more accountable presence.


What does that initial line mean?

It means it would be wonderful for us to be able to leave  £1000 on our front room table with the windows and doors open and know that the £1000 on our desk is safe simply because of mutual respect between us and our neighbours.
 
But this is not a perfect world!
In reality what we can say is that the world is perfectly imperfect!


Social imbalances mean that in times of desperation even the most respectable person may be driven to take something which does not belong to them. A factor that is beyond our reach in resolving.

So in the meantime security is something that we cannot take lightly!

It means if were walking through a crowded street which is known for pick pocketing abuse, that ladies should automatically put their handbags in front of them so they have a clear view of it, and men should move their wallets from their back pocket into their front pocket and push their hands deep into these pockets.

Does it mean that your suspecting the whole world of being criminals?
No!

What this means is that you have enough sense to know that not everyone has the same morals as you and will, if given the opportunity, take advantage of any lapses in security. CCTV is good at catching criminals after the event but like the timeless saying goes 'prevention is better than cure'! If you have your iPhone swiped, local police may catch the criminal through use of CCTV but you may go a month with out having access to your phone and potentially no access to loved ones. For some this may be devastating while a few of us may find this a welcomed relief ;-), but the loss will hurt.

When online we are all told that we should regularly change our passwords and always log out of an account, but how many of us actually do that?
The only time we care is when were hit by things such as a friend telling us they received a very suspect email from us, or worse when we look into our bank accounts and find out where there should by a few hundred pounds all that's left is an overdraft facility that says minus £300 and our council tax is due tomorrow...

But in all seriousness safety and security is something we should not be lax with, as there may come a time when tragedy strikes - the choice is yours...
