Hate preacher Anjem Choudary pictured in London today
Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has been pictured walking the streets of London with his electronic ankle tag clearly visible under his socks, after he was released from a bail hostel to return to his family home.
It comes amid fears he will again pose a threat to national security with reports that security services have noticed increased activity among his militant Islamist followers.
Choudary returned to his home in east London under licence in the past fortnight, having spent close to six months in a bail hostel under close supervision following his release from prison.
He was jailed after pledging allegiance to ISIS following a decades-long cat and mouse game with the authorities.
The father of five spent three years of a five-and-a-half year sentence in prison after he was detained in 2016 under terror laws for his encouragement to Muslims to join Isis.
The Choudary-led extremist group al-Muhajiroun was outlawed by the Government following the 2005 7/7 attacks on London but it has continued to operate under a number of different images.
He helped radicalise some of Britain’s most notorious terrorists, including London Bridge terror attacker ringleader Khuram Butt, and Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who murdered Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, south-east London.

Anjem Choudary leaves a bail hostel in north London after his release from Belmarsh Prison last year. The hate preacher was recently allowed to leave the hostel and return to his family home in London
The 52-year-old, dressed in white robes, was pictured by The Daily Telegraph yesterday, smiling while out shopping for sweets and to pay off electricity bill.
He said to the newspaper: ‘It’s a lovely day’, but declined to answer any questions.
He will have to submit his receipts to the authorities after his assets were frozen under United Nations sanctions.
Chaudary’s al-Muhajiroun group often targeted mixed-up or vulnerable young men, such as Brusthom Ziamani, who was brought up a Jehovah’s Witness, but converted to Islam after leaving his south London family home.
Ziamani was radicalised in just two weeks before he was arrested as he wandered the streets looking for a serviceman to execute in a Woolwich-style killing. He was jailed for 22 years in 2015.

Choudary’s students and lieutenants were also among ISIS militants to wage jihad in Syria including Siddhartha Dhar, who has been put on a global terror list as an ISIS executioner.
Al-Muhajiroun was seriously disrupted with the detention of Choudary in 2016 under terror laws for his encouragement to Muslims to join Isis.
But the release of Choudary and other offenders poses a renewed threat to national security with the worry that it may fuel young impressionable Muslims.
While security services are assured Choudary’s extremist activities have decreased it is understood that they’ve noticed increased activity among some of his followers, according to The Daily Telegraph.
A well-placed source told the newspaper: ‘The group remains a threat to national security but the dis-ruptions have been very effective.
‘Choudary is now out and back at home. He is somebody who preferred to stay in the comfort of his home in London and encourage others to go and fight.
‘He is a coward, his are not the actions of a warrior.’
A Ministry of Justice spokesman declined to comment on his move back to the family home.
The spokesman added: ‘Public protection is our overriding priority when deciding whether an offender should be allowed to relocate from an approved premises.
‘This would only be permitted following a robust risk assessment and they remain subject to close monitoring and strict licence conditions which, if breached, can see them go back to jail.’
Web of hate: How Anjem Choudary’s sermons inspired a generation of home-grown terrorists and radicals
The hate-filled circle around Anjem Choudary was a breeding ground for the Islamic extremism which plagued Britain in the last two decades.
Former law-student Choudary, who previously called for adulterers to be stoned to death and branded UK troops ‘cowards’, always hid behind free speech rules whenever challenged by the authorities.
But the group he helped to set up were linked to a series of terrorist attacks, as easily-influenced young men became inspired by his twisted vision of jihad.
Anjem Choudary was at the centre of a web of extremists who operated in London
The best known of his disciples was Muslim convert Michael Adebolajo, who, along with Michael Adebowale, attacked Fusilier Lee Rigby with a meat cleaver in Woolwich in 2013 in a murder which shocked the country.
Adebolajo was a supporter of Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun group and was pictured standing behind the hate preacher in 2007.
After the incident, Choudary said Adebolajo was ‘a practising Muslim and a family man’ who he was ‘proud of’.
But he denied encouraging the killer to carry out the attack, insisting he was ‘channeling the energy of the youth through demonstrations and processions’.
London Bridge attacker Khuram Butt also joined one of Choudary’s rallies, this time on College Green outside the Palace of Westminster in 2013.
There, Butt ‘verbally assaulted’ a moderate Muslim leader who had opposed Choudary’s extremist rhetoric.
Meanwhile, Mohammed Reza Haque, thought of as Choudary’s bodyguard, disappeared from Britain in 2014.
A photograph taken in Syria showed him in a balaclava and camouflage clothing, brandishing an AK-47 assault rifle and he has since been suspected as being a tall figure in ISIS’s horrific execution films.
Siddhartha Dhar, who once ran Choudary’s media operation, was also seen posing in a military style coat and boots, brandishing an assault rifle and holding his new born baby in Syria, labelling the picture ‘Generation Khilafah’.
In December 2014, two other close associates were discovered in the back of a lorry at Dover as they tried to leave the country.
Westminster attacker Khalid Masood was also linked to Choudary through Ibrahim Anderson, an al-Muhajiroun activist convicted of inviting support for ISIS in 2016.
