LONDON- Prime Minister David Cameron spoke up against Muslim clerics who have been denouncing free speech, equality and democracy in the UK.

Prime Minister stressed upon the importance of showing resilience against such firebrands and argued against those who refuse to accept the British way of life.

According to Downing Street, Prime Minister’s comments were aimed at all sections of the society and not just Muslims, however, this powerful intervention against “preachers of hate” exhibits a shift in the stance adopted by the state on this sensitive issue.

In addition, there are growing fears that radical preachers were encouraging young British Muslims to fight against the democratically elected government of Iraq. It was said that extremists tried to establish ‘Sharia Law Zones’ in some British cities where they enforced a ban on gambling, music and alcohol. School inspectors articulated that some Muslim-dominated schools in Birmingham were indoctrinating students against British values.
