Ajmal Masroor has condemned the government's efforts to counter terrorism, claiming their current measures have been a "miserable failure."

It has been revealed David Cameron is to place focus on curbing Islamist extremism in the Queen’s Speech this month. This will come in the form of an Extremism Bill to be announced on May 18, which will include 'measures to ban organisations, gag individuals and close down premises used to promote hatred'. 

The bill will crack down further on the number of people who attempt to recruit new members for ISIS. And Masroor, who is an Imam, slammed Cameron's existing efforts to fight the terrorist group. 

'It's failed miserably," he told Paul Ross. "They've spent millions of pounds of taxpayers' money and it seems extremism is proliferating in the west.

"Things are getting worse, and this government is failing to do the most basic thing: to prevent people from joining ISIS."

The broadcaster, who has received a death threat from the terrorist caliphate himself, stated what policies Cameron needs to implement.

"99.99 per cent of the world's Muslim population are sick and tired of being given the responsibility for what ISIS and other extremists are doing," he claimed. "They're nutters, they have something wrong in the brain.  

"If the government wants to win against the extremist mantra, we have to create an inclusive track from now on."
