Following are excerpts from an interview with British Islamist Anjem Choudary, which aired on Press TV, via the Internet, on April 11, 2013.
Anjem Choudary: Let me be absolutely clear: As Muslims, we reject democracy, we reject secularism, and freedom, and human rights. We reject all of the things that you espouse as being ideals.
Other TV guest: You reject human rights? I believe you.
Anjem Choudary: There is nothing called a republic in Islam. When we talk about the shari'a, we are talking about only the shari'a. We are talking about rejecting the U.N., the IMF, and the World Bank.
