Trio found not guilty of helping in the 7/7 London bombers
The three British Muslims were today found not guilty of helping in the 7 July bombers in London that killed 52 people and injured 700. The suicide bombings occur during the morning rush hour and their target was the London public transport system.
A jury at Kingston court unanimously found Waheed Ali, Sadeer Saleem and Mohammed Shakil not guilty of conspiring with the four bombers to cause explosions, after deliberating for seven days, but that does not mean that they are free to go. Ali and Shakil have been convicted of conspiracy because they attended a place used for terrorism training. Saleem was cleared of all the charges and is now calling for an inquiry into this prosecution.
Well I was surprise that the British Government did not follow the example of ex- American President George Bush and send them to Guantanamo Bay detention camp and torture them.
They had a fair trail but I still think that just because you went to see a training camp that the Government sees has a terrorist camp does not make you a terrorist. But it is better to be save than sorry. At this moment in the world everyone that is not white is considered a terrorist. Maybe it is time we give the Muslim people a chance because they are not all bad. They just have very different beliefs, we have to start saying to ourselves “do not judge the book for is cover”. That is what we are doing right now and that does not make us better that George Bush or the people that are torturing the detainees in Guantanamo Bay.
