A Muslim man in the UK has been jailed for his plot to carry out a series of terrorist attacks just months after he walked free from court after being found acquitted of separate terror charges.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury (28) was convicted at Woolwich Crown Court earlier this week of planning attacks on London’s annual Gay Pride parade, Madame Tussauds and tourists in one the UK capital’s open top bus tours.

Chowdhury had already been tried for terrorism offences twice before, including one plot to carry out a sword attack at Buckingham Palace.

Investigations for evidence of this attack in which Chowdhury had not only made lists of potential targets but bizarrely, also made a list of things he will do after being “martyred” by police and sent to heaven.

Near the top of his list of things to do when Allah takes him heaven for committing his planned atrocities on Earth were to meet and have sex with his 72 virgins, which the Koran promises to Muslim men who die fighting the infidel, i.e. non-Muslims.

Chowdhury, who had worked in a chicken shop takeaway, have engaged in psychical training in preparation for his attacks as well as researched targets and procured swords, with the help of his sister, as well as looked into firearms training.

Undercover officers, posing as extremists, had befriended Chowdhury and gathered the necessary evidence to arrest and prosecute him.

Chowdhury’s sister, Sneha Chowdhury( 25) was convicted of one count of failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism and cleared of another and both are to be sentenced at a later date.
