Mosque leaflet man could be charged

The group which delivered anti-Muslim leaflets to homes in Preston may be prosecuted. But the man behind the literature, which attacked plans to expand the Masjid-e-Salaam mosque in Fulwood, hit back at his critics and said he was entitled to have his say. The police have conceded British National Party member Tony Bamber may be protected under human rights legislation. Officers say they have received “a significant number” of complaints after the leaflets peddling anti-Muslim views were delivered to homes in Fulwood, Ingol and Cottam.
