London Bridge Jihadi of Pakistan origin was jailed for 8 years for another terror plot where he wanted to unleash 26/11 like carnage in London

The Jihadis had also been funding a proposed Madarsa, which was to be used for firearms training and which would have been attended by Khan. They had planned to launch terror traning camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). His aim was to establish Sharia law. 

On Friday a man was shot dead by the London Police in what is now being called a terrorist attack. The terrorist, now identified as Usman Khan stabbed multiple people near London Bridge before being tackled to the ground by bystanders. He was wearing a fake suicide vest and was eventually shot dead by the police. He is reported to be of Pakistan origin. He left school with no qualifications after spending part of his late teens in Pakistan, where he lived with his mother when she became ill.

Usman Khan had gone on a stabbing rampage just before 2 PM (1400 GMT) near the London Bridge, an area that had seen a deadly terrorist attack just two years ago.

A video that went viral on social media shows police officers dragging a bystander from atop the terrorist before the police took aim to shoot him dead. The knife-wielding terrorist was tackled to the ground by over a dozen bystanders who showed exemplary courage.

It is now being reported that Anti-terror police have raided a house in Staffordshire area which was linked to Khan. In a shocking twist of events, it is now also being confirmed that the London Bridge Jihadi Usman Khan had a prior terrorism conviction and had been jailed for eight years in 2012. He was released on licence in December 2018 and was still wearing a monitoring tag.

Commissioner Basu confirmed Khan had been attending a seminar in Fishmongers’ Hall run by Cambridge University’s Criminology Department to help offenders reintegrate into society following their release from jail.

Previously, Usman Khan was arrested on December 20th 2010 for wanting to plant bombs in several toilets in the London Stock Exchange. This terror plot was hatched by Usman Khan along with 9 others. His terror group was an “Al Qaeda inspired group” as is being reported by the local media.

Police found a handwritten list of targets which included the U.S. Embassy and the homes of London Mayor Boris Johnson, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral and two rabbis.

The gang also carried out surveillance of other possible targets including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye.

The group planned to send five bombs in the post to London synagogues and the Church of Scientology headquarters, as well as spreading panic in Stoke-on-Trent by planting bombs in pub and club toilets. Their plot was foiled after the security services bugging their homes and cars heard discussions of a ‘Mumbai’ atrocity on the streets of Britain. They were referring to the terror attacks of 28th November 2008 where terrorists from Pakistan had laid siege on Mumbai killing over 174 people and injuring well above 300.

The Jihadis had also been funding a proposed Madarsa, which was to be used for firearms training and which would have been attended by Khan. They had planned to launch terror training camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). His aim was to establish Sharia law.

The Prime Minister of Britain, Boris Johnson has said that it is a “mistake” to allow criminals to leave prison early and vowed to increased police presence following the “heartbreaking” attack. “Obviously our thoughts are very much them and their families, their loved ones, everybody affected by the attack,” he told reporters. “My thanks go first of all to the emergency services — the police, for their bravery and their professionalism, and to repeat again and give thanks again to members of the public who put themselves in harm’s way to protect others. I think they represent the best in our country. I thank them on behalf of the rest of our country”, the British PM added.
