Hate preacher Anjem Choudary called for ‘Lady Al Qaeda’ to be freed ‘physically or by ransom’ months before British terrorist, 44, lay siege to synagogue demanding her release

  • Choudhary called on his supporters to fight for the release of Aafia Siddiqui
  • Briton Malik Faisal Akram demanded she be free during his synagogue siege
  • Choudary believed to have influenced around 100 jihadis to carry out attacks

Hate preacher Anjem Choudhary urged his supporters to free a notorious Islamist fanatic dubbed ‘Lady Al Qaeda’ months before a British terrorist demanded her release while besieging a Texas synagogue on Saturday. 

Choudhary called on his supporters to release Aafia Siddiqui ‘physically or by ransom’ in a Telegram post in September. 

The 54-year-old has been able to openly carry out social media campaigns again after licence conditions barring him from public speaking expired in 2021, three years after he was released from prison following a conviction for supporting ISIS


‘The obligation upon us is to either free her physically or to ransom her or to exchange her,’ Choudary wrote on his Telegram channel, the Washington Post reported.

‘However, until such time as we can fulfill one of these obligations the minimum that we can do is to use all that we have to raise awareness about her case, to keep her name in the hearts and in the minds of Muslims.’ 

Briton Malik Faisal Akram died in a hail of bullets after a 10-hour stand-off on Saturday in which four people were held hostage at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, 27 miles from Dallas.

Police sources said one of the 44-year-old’s demands was for Siddiqui to be released from the federal prison 30 miles from where the hostage standoff took place.
