Kassam Banned By Twitter After Radical Islam Book Launch
Former UKIP leadership challenger Raheem Kassam (pictured above), who is now London editor-in-chief at Breitbart, has seen his twitter account suspended for the first time just days after launching his new book critical of radical Islam No Go Zones.
The new book published by Regnery has already caused a stir on social media and hit a number of best seller lists on Amazon, including Islamic law, terrorism, and the important “movers and shakers” list.
Kassam implied the sudden decision of Twitter to suspend his account just days after he revealed the controversial cover art of the forthcoming book which challenges radical Islam may have been more than just a coincidence when he took to rival social media Facebook to reveal the shutdown. Kassam also said that his account had never been shut down before.
Remarking on the decision of the micro-blogging platform to suspend his account, Mr Kassam told Breitbart on Wednesday:
‘It is incredibly conveniently timed for Twitter to suspend my account, after I just announced my book on No Go Zones. It’s almost as if there are people who don’t want the truth about what’s going on in America and Europe to come to light.’
The book, which chronicles Kassam’s travels through European and American no go zones is due to be released on August 14 and is currently available on Amazon.
