From the Stoke Sentinel
The 40-year-old imam was locked up for six-and-a-half years at London's Old Bailey this morning after being convicted of six charges of encouraging terrorism and two counts of supporting the Islamic State terror group.
Hussain was arrested after anti-terror police planted an undercover officer in the mosque at 229 High Street, in Tunstall. The covert worshipper secretly recorded 17 sermons between June and October last year - with investigators saying six 'strayed beyond mainstream moderate Islamic thought'.
In his sermons, Hussain, of Knightsbridge Way, Tunstall, told children as young as 10 that martyrdom was better than anything they would achieve at school. He also said martyrs had nothing to fear when 'you go in front of Allah with the bullet wounds and sword wounds and you are raised in that situation with the blood still coming from your body'.
The most highly rated comment is pertinent
Has the Mosque been closed down?
