The beginning of the video uses the same phrase used on jihadist websites of ISIS and Al-Qaeda that says:

“Islam has become for us a religion and the entire universe is home for us.”

Chaudhry condemns the attacks in Paris, but does say, “We are becoming infatuated with the civilisation of the kuffar and their beliefs and their values and indeed we have latched on to these. Now you know who you are if you are of those who state ‘I will die to protect your freedom and I believe in freedom of speech. But understand that it is not the Islamic response to this issue. It represents a defeatist mentality, brothers and sisters.”

“Brothers and sisters, we would not be here had it not been for the fact that the kuffar had gone to our lands and killed our people and raped and pillaged our resources.”

He ends his video by calling on Muslims not to “succumb to these corrupt values that the kuffar are trying to impose on us” because “we have a supreme set of values.”

The video was posted on January 11 using an account name of “Call of Dawah.” It was made private three days after being posted.

Clifford Chance said Chaudhry’s comments were “personal and not those of Clifford Chance”.

A spokesman for the firm said: “The firm is committed to establishing an inclusive culture where people with diverse backgrounds and views work effectively together and feel confident to develop their potential. We ask our people to at all times consider how their personal conduct and actions may affect those around them, their professional reputation and that of the firm.”

In a statement, Chaudhry said, “I apologize for any offence caused by my video. I have a deep and serious Islamic faith, I had no intention other than to encourage intellectual debate and would never support or condone violence.”
