A British writer aroused outrage last night by condemning French police for shooting dead the armed Islamic terrorist who beheaded teacher Samuel Paty.
Dana Nawzar Jaf – a former Chevening Scholar at Durham University – withdrew the police’s decision to murder Chechen fanatic Aboulakh Anzorov, fearing the terrorist would attack them or others.
Mr Jaf, who describes himself as a Kurdish activist, had posted on Twitter: ‘I fully condemn the brutal, senseless murder of the Muslim suspect last night by the French police.

Macron and his security apparatus should explain to the public the need to use disproportionate force against someone suspected of a knife crime. France is in crisis. ‘
Mr. Jaf – an occasional writer for the left-wing magazine New Statesman, did not condemn the beheading itself.
His Twitter account, with the slogan ‘build bridges and destroy idols’, was inundated with angry comments.
One poster wrote: ‘The police did what they were supposed to do. They protected their citizens. ‘
Last night, Mr Jaf, who reportedly arrived in Britain as an exchange student from Iraq in 2009, could not be reached for comment.
