London police make first arrest in Dr Imran Farooq murder case

LONDON: In a major breakthrough, Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command detectives investigating the murder of Dr Imran Farooq arrested a man on suspicion of conspiracy to murder the Pakistani politician on Thursday 16 September 2010.

The 52-year-old British Citizen of Pakistani origin was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport at approx 10:10 AM on Monday morning after landing at the airport on a flight from Canada. The detectives lay in waiting for the man whose travel trail was being monitored for a long time. The detectives were interviewing him on Monday at a West London Police station where he was in custody.

Dr Farooq was on his way home from work when he was attacked outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware, by a group of Pakistani looking men who killed him using a kitchen knife and bricks. A post-mortem gave his cause of death as multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head.

A five and a half inch-bladed kitchen knife and a house brick used in the attack were recovered at the scene. A spokesman at the Metropolitan Police told that detectives from “the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command remain committed to finding those responsible”.

The detectives believe that Dr Imran Farooq’s murder would have required careful planning and would have required help from other people, some of whom may have provided assistance or information unwittingly.

Again on Monday, the Met Police said that it’s interested in speaking to anyone who was asked for information about Dr Farooq and his routine, or who was asked to help buy items such as knives similar to those used in the murder, or mobile phones around the time of the attack. The police believe that the items used in the murder were bought from local areas in Edgware prior to the attack and killing of the former convener of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).

The mobile sims used were not registered on any names but the police has connected the dozens of numbers called in Pakistan, London and few other countries using the sims which were shut down soon after the brutal killing.

The police has offered a reward of up to £20,000 for anyone providing information leading to the identification, arrest, and prosecution of those responsible for Dr Farooq's murder.

Sources have told Geo News that more arrests are expected soon as the detectives have received important new leads in recent days. Only a few days ago, two residential addresses were searched in London by the detectives for 55 hours non-stop. The police have so far questioned eight people under caution.

Assalam O Alaikum to All, Any one in this world whatever who they are king or president of any country or or political leaders or related to any positions or related to any relations and they also saying that I AM MUSLIM so this one sentence means they commitment and oath with Allah to follow His final book Al Quran. So any of them doing any act or saying any thing against Quran so the day of judgment Allah is not forgive to any one only because of king or president of any country. Any one saying that I am Muslim so no one exempt of Hukm/order of Allah whatever they king or president of any country. We are blaming to others all the time but what about as a Muslim we are following Quran, according to Quran Allah saying many times in Quran very strictly to follow deen e Ibreheem and according to Quran Last prophet Mohammed pbuh also follower of deen e Ibraheem. Do we following deen e Ibraheem which is only in Quran, there is any example of deen e Ibraheem. No one but we are enemy our self. We have a book of guidance, the only book shows us right path to Allah and we lost. Its like we living in the mountain of gold but we don't know the value of the mountain of gold and we are saying that we are poor. We have to stop blaming to others and start focusing our self. Blaming to others means we are right so in this case if we are right so why Allah is not helping to us, the reason that we are not helping to Allah, In Quran Allah asking couple of time that if any one help to Allah so then Allah will help to them and the only way to help to Allah that we start follow His the only final book Al Quran. The only book revealed on Mohammed pbuh and He face lot of problems, difficulties, pains and lot more during to revealed Quran so if any one love and respect to Mohammed pbuh so they should respect every single word of Quran because we got Quran through Mohammed pbuh. Islam means peace but no peace in our countries the reason is no Islam so no peace. We are busy to following people and many other books the books people created to our own willing, own pinion, own school of thoughts, but we don't have time to understand and follow only one book of Allah Al Quran and we expecting help and mercy from Allah. According to Quran if any one saying that I am Muslim and they are not following Quran so its impossible to safe from shaitaan. Allah is anger with us and He start sending His punishment in different way, so the only way to safe from shaitaan and azab e Elahi and get mercy and help from Allah so we have to follow only Quran as a Muslim as per our commitment and oath with Allah. If not so we unfaithful and unfair with Allah, another word we lying to Allah and according to Quran birth to death nothing hide from Allah, He watching all the time, not only watching He also know that whatever in our mind and in our heart and what we are thinking and our eyes like camera and the display Allah watching all the time. See Surah Al Majadilah 58 Ayat No. 7, See Surah Al Hood 11 Ayat No. 5 and 6, See Surah Al Momin 40 Ayat No. 19. According to Quran if any one born in this world so Allah breath His spirit to them and when we sleep in the night so then Allah took our spirit and He check every thing whatever we did all day. So its easy to say that I am Muslim but its big responsibility. If we work with any agency like fbi, kgb or asi so we have to sign contract and follow the rules and regulations, otherwise they punish to us. And as a Muslim we commitment and promise to follow instructions of Allah which is only in Quran. But we are following and many other books without confirming/tasdeeq from Quran. We are following people and mostly people is misguiding to us and we are suffering and fighting and killing to each other's. Life is to short so in this period we need to gain our amaal/practice from Quran so then we face to Allah in the day of judgment. We have to stop those people who living in palaces and enjoying their temporary world and we are fighting and killing because of those few leaders. We need to take some action and stand against them and we need to unite. We have to ignore them, every single Muslim has a Quran at their homes, so just grab the Quran and understand so then we can found many error the one we are doing in our life, and we no need to ask or tell to any one, Allah knows that what we are doing and Allah is much enough to know. All people here to leave this world, only Allah live forever and we all face to Allah in the day of judgment. So please stop following people and many other books. According to Quran mostly people in this earth is misguided people because they following their willing, opinion and their school of thoughts and its prohibited in Islam so if any one listen to them so they misguide to us. See Surah Al Anam 6 Ayat 116 and 117. I have nothing beside Quran in my mind and in my heart, because I focus hundred percent only in Quran so with help of Allah I understand Quran and according to Quran no one can understand Quran without permission of Allah. Its not means the I am doing any unique thing or I am special or I am the one, no not at all, I am nothing I am leaving any time but when I don't know so please don't focus on me, just focus on Allah and His book Al Quran, No reason to exposed my self the only reason I am doing all this for expose the message of Allah which is only in Quran to the world as much I can. And again please stop focusing only people and many other books. The only solution of our countries that we need Allah mercy and help and the only way to get Allah mercy and help that as a Muslim as per our commitment and promise and oath with Allah we have to follow Quran but whole Quran not only few parts of Quran according to our willing. I am not belong to any kind of group, organizations or gang or any kind of firqas or sections at all. I am not asking any kind of favor, help or any single penny donation or I am not planning to create any organization, I don't need million vote to get the seats, but I need only one vote from Allah so then I will face to Allah in the day of judgment. Allah Hafiz and no doubt only Allah is Hafiz.
