Western media leaked information that a Danish newly converted Muslim was actually an undercover government agent, pretending to be "extremist" and tried to involve in his ideas other Muslims.
In other words, he acted as an agent provocateur. This leak caused uproar among Muslims in Denmark.
"Police and secret services want us to trust them, but they are sending provocateurs into our community to lead people astray", Qadir Baksh, chairman of the Luton Islamic Center in Bury Park Road, told Luton Today on Wednesday, October 10.
"Muslim convert" Morten Storm, known as "Murad Danish", was a double agent of Danish spy service (PET) and the CIA.
Storm told newspaper Jyllands-Posten he had been recruited by PET in 2006 to spy on "extremists" in the country. According to him, it was he who led the CIA to Islamic preacher in Yemen, Anwar Al-Awlaki. As a result, the preacher was murdered by Americans.
The "convert" moved to British Luton, where he persuaded local Muslim leaders of his intention to start a new life and abandon his old "extremist ideas". But instead, he began to promote so-called "radical ideas" and identify "potentially dangerous" inexperienced young Muslims.
After that, lists with the names of the "unreliable Muslims" were handed over to government spy services, and the Muslims were usually awarded with round-the-clock spying by government agencies. At any moment, any of such Muslims could have been arrested, proclaimed to be a member of al-Qaeda and charged with planning so called "terrorist attacks".
