Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah
Founded: November 2005;
In November 2005, The Saved Sect was re-established under the name Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah (in north London).
ASWJ is a Sunni Islamic organisation operating in the United Kingdom, intended to be a successor to the banned Al-Muhajiroun organisation.
ASWJ operates mainly through an invitation-only Internet forum set up in 2006 by Mizanur Rahman called “Followers of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’aah Muntada”, of which Anjem Choudary is a prominent contributor, under the screen name “Abou Luqman”. The forum currently has 700 members.
A reporter visiting the site found calls for holy war, and recordings of Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and, notably, Omar Bakri Mohammed, the founder of al-Muhajiroun.
In February 2006 ASWJ helped organize the Islamist demonstration outside Danish Embassy in London in 2006.
In December 2006, ASWJ issued a call on one of its websites for Muslims to fight the Ethiopian attack against the Islamic Courts Union in Somalia “financially, physically and verbally”. This call was reiterated by Anjem Choudary in early January 2007.
In March 2009 members of the group took part in a protest in Luton at the homecoming parade of British troops returning from Afghanistan.
