SHAFAQNA – A Muslim mixed martial arts fighter – who trains boxing champ Amir Khan – has slammed British Islamic extremists as “uneducated monkeys” in a heated social media rant.
Tam Khan has urged all Muslims living in Britain to “respect” the country’s culture and traditions – and says anyone who doesn’t should be thrown out.
“We need to fix this epidemic of inbreds from doing these despicable crimes,” he told his 6,000 Facebook followers.
“Sorry I don’t care if you think I’m being harsh.
“Islam is a beautiful religion, but these uneducated monkeys misinterpret things and feel they are acting on God’s behalf and it’s only getting worse.”
Days after the furious post gathered 148,000 likes and 126,000 shares, Facebook waded into the debate by deleting Mr Khan’s social media account.
But it was quickly restored after Facebook claiming the action was a “mistake”.
The famous fighter, who says he has never suffered from racism or Islamophobia, felt compelled to speak out after seeing some Muslims “milk the benefit system, free education and health services – yet complain”.
He urged Muslim leaders to educate their community and “fix this s**t” after noticing a change in attitude between his British and Muslim friends over the past decade.
“We do have a problem with our community and so-called ‘Muslim’ brothers,” he said.
“Whatever is going on it’s time we stop blaming others, stop being the ‘victims’ and blaming the west.
“I feel more Muslims need to start cleaning up our society.
“We are lucky to be able to have so many mosques in England, able to have free speech but don’t take the p**s.
“If you don’t like what you see it’s simple, LEAVE!”
“Integrate, speak the bloody language of the country, educate yourselves. If you cannot you don’t deserve to be there in the first place.”

He ended by saying that these “idiots” are giving all Muslims a bad name – but added: “We are just as much to blame for letting these idiots do these things as they are for sitting quiet. If we don’t it won’t stop only get worse.”
“Stop becoming militants and extremists.
“Pray, do good, give charity, be good to your family and elders, contribute to your community, help the place prosper.”
