Imam who thought Barbie dolls were pornographic
THE Brixton Prison imam who Paul Song believes was instrumental in forcing him out of the jail once launched a bizarre attack on Barbie dolls.
Mohammed Yusuf Ahmed said in 2011: ‘Barbie dolls belong to the top shelf. What is the point of a four-year-old girl having a doll that is dressed going to a nightclub? What is the point of a doll that has voluptuous assets? It’s a sign of the Day of Judgment.’
For eight years, he was a part-time chaplain at Woodhill high-security prison in Milton Keynes, while also general secretary of the Islamic Party of Britain. The party allegedly advocated the death penalty for public displays of homosexuality and wanted to transform Britain into an Islamic state.
In 2014, it was reported that Ahmed, who also uses the name Shaykh Yusuf Az-Zahaby belonged to the Islamist organisation Al-Hikma Media where some preachers have advocated killing women who engage in premarital sex.
