Donald Trump’s controversial PR campaign to win the presidential race has sparked a legal battle between a Muslim political leader angered by his claims about parts of London being radicalised.

Kamran Malik, head of the East-London based Communities United Party, is seeking £10m in damages from the US billionaire after he claimed that parts of the capital are so radicalised that the police fear for their lives.

Malik, who lives in Forest Gate, argued that his “small community” has suffered the most damage in the wake of Trump’s remarks about the radicalisation of Muslims. He added that the “careless or negligent comments” had the potential to shake the trust and confidence that Muslims in his area have built with their “non-Muslim friends and business partners”.

The application has been adjourned until next month (19 February) to give Malik time to amend the details of his claim to ensure that it conforms with court rules.
