UK Muslim broadcaster named to be 'eliminated'

UK-based imam and broadcaster Ajmal Masroor has written on his Facebook page that two Metropolitan police detectives arrived at his home on Wednesday night to warn he was "in imminent danger from the terrorists."

The police officers were visiting me to give me a warning and asking me to be more vigilant.

As soon as they left my house I started digging further and found an al-Shabab video has been uploaded on the internet and in it they name me as a Muslim who is an enemy of Islam and should be eliminated.

They name a few others in their video message and encourage people to resort to using knives to behead people like me.
