In London trial radical cleric denies inciting racial hatred and murder

Radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri on Thursday denied inciting radical hatred and murder against non-Muslims as British prosecutors wrapped up their case against the former preacher accused of radicalizing his followers.

"Racism is a major sin," said al-Masri after taking an oath to tell the truth. "There is verse in the Quran that explains that. I condemn racism but we have been told to hate the wrong and endorse the good”, reports the AP.
