Terror arrest medical student says England is full of ‘homosexuals’ and ‘incest’

A medical student arrested on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack in London complained that incest and homosexuality are “everywhere” in England, it’s been alleged.

The Times reports Tarik Hassane, 21, made his outspoken remarks on social media.

He said British jihadists fighting against the forces of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria were “fulfilling the greatest deed in Islam”.

In one post, he advised Muslims in non-Muslim countries to emigrate — even though he intended to carry out a two-year medical placement at an NHS hospital.

“Living among the disbelievers in their countries is a major sin and hijra [emigration] from these countries is wajib [obligatory],” he wrote.

“[In] England you have incest, homosexuals, sexual interactions in public, physical attacks on Muslims, alcohol/nudity everywhere,” he added.

He claimed that women “can never rule countries, be judges or lead anything” because they are driven by emotion. He told one female user: “It’s more beneficial for you to take lessons on how to make dinner and clean and obey.”

Although Hassane has praised British jihadists fighting the Assad regime in Syria, he denies wanting to become a “mujahid”, or holy warrior.

Nicknamed “The Surgeon”, Hassane is one of five friends from west London who were arrested last week as part of an investigation into an alleged terrorist plot.
