A well-known community figure has urged people to remain united and vigilant against extremism threats after a man from High Wycombe was jailed for terrorism offences.

Mohammed Saboor, 25, of Burnham Close in Castlefield, was found guilty of trying to provide battlefield goggles for another High Wycombe man who was recruited by Islamic State.

After he was sentenced, director of community relations organisation Islamix, Mohammed Khaliel, called for residents to work with the authorities.

He said: “Extremism remains an enemy for all of civil and tolerant society and we must all remain united and vigilant.

“The police alone cannot achieve this task and the community must assist by reporting even small suspicions.

“The police in return must not destroy the trust of the community by acting disproportionately against minorities or abuse their powers, such as stop and search.

“Currently, some individuals are not even reporting crimes when they are victims, let alone providing intelligence to police.”

During the trial, the court heard Saboor tried to find military-grade goggles that would match the eye prescription of Omar Hussain - a former Morrisons security guard who became infamous for launching a tirade against his home town in a now notorious Newsnight feature.
