Summary: 

The British government acted more like an Islamic State when it barred foreign journalists Lauren Southern and Brittany Pettibone from its shores, a Christian lobby group has claimed. In a frank assessment on the recent decision to prevent Southern and Pettibone from entering the UK and detaining the Canadian journalist for six hours under the 2000 Terrorism Act, Christian Concern said there was growing evidence that as Islam increases its influence in society authorities were clamping down on any criticism of the faith. Tim Dieppe, director of Islamic Affairs at Christian Concern, slammed letters handed to the political activists by UK border officials which maintained that their views represented a threat to the “fundamental interests of society and to the public policy of the United Kingdom.” Dieppe claimed it was “very concerning” that any denunciation of Allah or the Islamification of Britain was being met in such a way.
