Al-Muhajiroun is a banned Islamist terrorist organisation that was based in Britain and which has been linked to international terrorism, homophobia and antisemitism. The group was proscribed under the UK Terrorism Act 2000 on 14 January 2010 together with four other organisations including Islam4UK. The Group operated in the United Kingdom from 14 January 1986 until the British Government announced an intended ban in August 2005. The group became notorious for its September 2002 conference, "The Magnificent 19", praising the September 11, 2001 attacks. Home Secretary Charles Clarke banned Bakri from the United Kingdom on 12 August 2005 because it was alleged that his presence was "not conducive to the public good." The group has previously clashed with members of the English Defence League. The group was then relaunched in June 2009. Two other offshoot organisations, The Saviour Sect and Al-Ghurabaa had previously been banned for the 'glorification' of terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2006. It was also alleged to have run a Lahore safe house for visiting British Muslims. Michael Adebolajo, the man accused of killing Lee Rigby in a terrorist attack in Woolwich, attended Al-Muhajiroun meetings and demonstrations.
