British Politician Calls for Muslims to Sign 'Code of Conduct'

A controversial British Member of the European Parliament has renewed his calls for Muslims in the UK to sign up to a special "code of conduct", which would include rejecting aspects of the Koran which advocate "violent physical Jihad".

Gerrard Batten, a senior member of the right-wing UK Independence Party (UKIP) - which calls for Britain to leave the European Union and advocates for strict immigration controls in the UK - first published the "Proposed Charter of Muslim Understanding" in 2006.
