"Hate" preachers face expulsion from Britain


Britain’s Interior Minister, Charles Clarke, has unveiled a series of measures to deal with terrorism in the wake of the London bombings that killed 56 people. As part of the proposals designed to make an offence of inciting acts of terrorism, foreigners face explusion if they are deemed a menace to society. The final decision on whom to deport will come down to British courts. As three of the bombing suspects visited Pakistan last year, much attention has fallen on its Islamic schools or madrasas. Earlier, Prime Minister Tony Blair told parliament that Islamabad was as keen as London to take action. Meanwhile, more than 150 people have been arrested throughout Pakistan in connection with the London attacks. Police have been conducting raids on a series of mosques and Islamic religious schools with suspected militant links. Pakistan’s Information Ministry has denied rumours a British Muslim was among those arrested.
