Muslim television channel fined after preacher of hate incited murder live on air - Telegraph

'An Islamic television channel based in Britain has been handed a heavy fine for broadcasting a programme which urged Muslims to commit murder in the name of their religion.

Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator, ordered Manchester-based DM Digital to pay an £85,000 fine for a programme which told Muslims it was their duty to kill anyone who insulted the Prophet Mohammed.
Rehmatul Lil Alameen featured a live lecture by Abdul Qadir Jilani, an Islamic scholar, which included material that Ofcom considered was "likely to encourage or incite the commission of crime or to lead to disorder".

Mr Jilani, who is based in Walthamstow, east London, said in the offending programme: "The matter of insulting the prophet does not fall in the category of terrorism.

"Those who cannot kill such men have no faith.

"It is your duty, the duty of those who recite the holy verse, to kill those who insult Prophet Mohammed.

"Under the guidance from Islamic texts it is evident that if a Muslim apostatises, then it is not right to wait for the authorised courts; anyone may kill him.

"An apostate deserves to be killed and any man may kill him."

A quick question, is that not incitement to murder? If it is, why have the police not become involved or are Islamists beyond the rule of law in the UK?
