The Telegraph revealed that the Home Office and Crown Prosecution Service are planning to use court orders to ensure that British internet providers immediately remove Islamist propaganda.

as a suspect in the attacks in and around Canada’s parliament building on Wednesday in which a soldier was shot dead.

Reports in Canada suggested Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Muslim convert who shot dead a Canadian soldier, and another Islamic convert, Martin Ahmad Rouleau, had been influenced by Choudary.

Choudary was arrested last month by Scotland Yard.

Rouleau’s Twitter account showed that he followed several radical preachers, including Choudary.

Choudary defended himself, saying: “The fact that someone follows you on Twitter does not mean you necessarily influenced him to do anything.”

The Telegraph reports that Choudary’s followers have been tied to several terrorist plots in Britain, including Michael Adebolajo, who killed the British soldier Lee Rigby on a London street last year.

Downing Street also wants to encourage social media sites to use so-called “counter-speech” tactics, which involves positive messages about Islam online.

A source told The Telegraph the meeting was “constructive”.

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said intelligence and security agencies were analyzing the implications of the Ottawa attack for Britain.
