England: Restaurant owner stored ISIS execution videos, kept terror manual on how to become a sleeper agent

The prosecution claimed that the document provided information to the terrorist on how to hide an extremist identity and gave tips on physical training, self-defence techniques and target practice. Most significantly, it also gave details about weapons, survival techniques, bomb-making and transporting weapons, said the prosecutor.

In a shocking incident, the police probe had resulted in finding that an owner of a curry house in England had hoarded ISIS execution videos and kept a terrorist handbook on how to be a secret agent living a double life in the West. According to the reports, 41-year-old restauranteur Abdul Hussain was arrested in Torquay, England in July appeared before the court last week in connection with storing ISIS handbooks including ‘How to Survive in the West’ and ‘Miracles in Syria’ on hard drives at his flat.

These books had instructions on making bombs, handling weapons, avoiding detection, and ways of travelling to ISIS-controlled territory to take part in the fighting.

The raid by counter-terrorism officers was carried out at a flat in July and had found videos of ‘extremely savage and disturbing’ public beheadings and conspiracy theories denying the Westminster terror attack. Some of the videos showed executions carried out by children.

They had also uncovered manuals detailing how to ‘activate jihad at the right time’ at his residence during a raid on July 17, 2018.

However, Hussain appearing before the court claimed he was simply a ‘researcher’ with a curiosity about ISIS when he was arrested and interviewed by police. He added that he had wanted to make a documentary, but police found no evidence of this.

The officers had become suspicious of Hussain in early November 2017 when they carried out a drugs raid on his restaurant. However, instead of drugs, they discovered hard drives with the extreme videos on them.

Paul Raudnitz, the prosecutor said, “How to Survive in the West was, in essence, a compendium of information of assistance to a terrorist. It purported to teach how to be a secret agent living a double life and how to become a ‘sleeper-cell’ which ‘activates at the right time’ when needed to jihad.”

“There were a very large number of documents relating to the Syrian conflict, the Iraq war, ISIS, jihad and terrorism. These included a number of pro-ISIS publications, such as ISIS online magazines and e-books. There were also a large number of video files relating to ISIS and terrorism, including a number portraying disturbing scenes of ISIS fighters training; fighting; public, sometimes extremely savage, executions; and violence,” added Raudnitz.

The prosecution claimed that the document provided information to the terrorist on how to hide an extremist identity and gave tips on physical training, self-defence techniques and target practice. Most significantly, it also gave details about weapons, survival techniques, bomb-making and transporting weapons, said the prosecutor.
