The Home Secretary Theresa May may ban the U.S. pastor who threatened to burn the Koran on the 9/11 anniversary from visiting Britain, she said today.
Terry Jones is hoping to attend an English Defence League rally in February next year so he can speak out against Islamic extremism.
But despite insisting today that he is not anti-Muslim, Home Secretary Theresa May said she was looking into banning the 58-year-old from entering the country.
‘Of course the Home Secretary has the right to exclude people who are not conducive to public good or on national security grounds, she told Sky News’ Sunday Live.
‘Pastor Terry Jones has been on my radar for a few months now.
‘It wasn’t clear that he was definitely coming to the UK but if it is now clear that he’s definitely coming to the UK, then of course this is a case that I will be actively looking at.’
