Excerpt:

A radical new Islamist group based in Britain plans to meet in Islamabad to issue a religious decree against the Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban, declare the country's constitution non-Islamic and give details of the apostasy of President of Asif Ali Zardari.

The moot, titled Shariah 4 Pakistan, also plans to lecture on how the country's founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, was a "traitor of Islam" and how Pakistan can be transformed under the Shariah law. It is the same group that last year tried to hold a similar conference in India, aptly titled Shariah 4 India.

The main speakers include Shaikh Omar Bakri, the self-proclaimed "Worldwide Ameer of Al-Muhajiroun", and Anjem Choudary, "Judge of Shairah Court of UK". Other speakers are to include Abu Walaa, an Islamic preacher, Abu Baraa, a lecturer in Islam and Abu Rumaysah, chairman of the Society of Muslim Converts.
