Dr Leon Moosavi is an academic in the North West of England who is carving a little niche for himself as a commentator on Muslim affairs and in particular issues surrounding converts to Islam (or as many Muslims like to say reverts, meaning that everyone is born with their faith, they have now simply chosen to revert back to their original religion)
Dr Moosavi can get carried away. In the fallout from the terrorist attack in Woolwich, on Sunday 27 May the English Defence League and Unite Against Fascism scheduled rival rallies at Downing Street. Such events are not that unusual, and usually attract a large police presence, yet Dr Moosavi tweeted:
Today is make or break in London. The demonstrations will either trigger a civil war or show that Britain is united. I'm feeling uneasy.— Dr Leon Moosavi (@Leon_Moosavi) May 27, 2013
I am pleased to say such concerns proved to be wildly inaccurate. Both last weekend, and this.
