An Islamic scholar from Ipswich, who once fought as a jihadist, is pleading with British Muslims not to join the sectarian violence in the Middle East.
Muhammad Manwar Ali fought in Afghanistan, Syria and Burma in the 1980s, but says the Islamic State and the use of jihad today is extreme and the violence is inhuman and evil.
"Don't go to the Syria, Iraq conflict positions - don't go there.
Your heart cries, your heart bleeds and you feel emotional or sad.
Pray. Trust god that he has the affairs in his hands, he never supports injustice and falsehood. Our job is to be good and kind, wherever we are."
