Libya's spiritual leader banned from entering UK

  • Sheikh Sadik Al-Ghariani, the highest spiritual leader of Libya, has been banned from entering into Britain, according to media reports.

    The grand mufti, fled Britain in August after it was revealed that he was broadcasting to Libyan militants through an internet TV station and aiding the Islamist takeover of Tripoli.

    After examining the radical cleric’s broadcasts, the UK Home Office issued an order banning him from entering Britain.

    A spokesperson for the Home Office said “those who seek to foster hatred or promote terrorism” were not welcome in the country.
