Persecution: UK – Street preacher freed

October 2017

Christian street preacher, Ian Sleeper, has been released after being held in a cell for 13 hours for sharing the truth about Islam.

Mr Sleeper was arrested outside Southwark Cathedral on 23 June. He was at the time displaying placards depicting love for Muslims and criticising the ideology of Islam.

However, he was informed by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in August that no charges will be brought against him, after he had been on strict bail conditions for six weeks.

Mr Sleeper was supported by the Christian Legal Centre (CLC) throughout. He is the owner of the Singleton Tandoori Indian Balti House in Ashford. He began taking his placards onto the street in January 2017, after it became clear that his Muslim staff were ignorant of aspects of their own religion.

He told the CLC: ‘After reading the Qur’an and observing the behaviour of my Muslim staff, it became clear they were not practising much of their religion’s teachings. I found this curious, and, after chatting to them about their belief, I realised this was due to their ignorance of the Quranic verses. They simply do not know what their religion teaches’.

He began outside BBC broadcasting house in central London, with a placard reading ‘#Love Muslims, Hate Islam; Time For The Truth’. Following the terror attack on Westminster Bridge this year, he changed location.
