Witch-hunt against Azad Ali: letters to the Mail on Sunday and others

“I am writing to complain about the article published in the Mail on Sunday (18/01/09) about Azad Ali, one of the bloggers on Between the Lines. The article selectively quotes from his blog to paint a picture which is misleading and falsely portrays him as an extremist.

“The specific and central allegation in the article entitled: Muslim civil servant suspended over ‘killing British troops is justified’ blog, claims that Azad Ali ‘suggested that killing British troops in Iraq is justified’; this is completely untrue and libelous.”

Between the Lines reproduces the letter of complaint sent to the Mail on Sunday, Daily Telegraph and Evening Standard in response to their false accusations against Azad Ali.
