Mr Sarwar, of Gordons, Pitsea, also backed calls for Sharia law to be introduced in Britain and said public flogging should be carried out in town centres.
His comments follow those made by Lord Chief
Justice, Lord Phillips, who said aspects of Sharia could be used to settle
Islamic disputes, but not in the courts.
Mr Sarwar is also very concerned for the safety of Muslims today and says racial abuse has increased since the 7/7 London bombings in 2005.
He said: "What is happening is mainly to do with misunderstanding. Maybe there is just a fear of the unknown.
"It is very difficult to work out why this is. I thought we were living in a modern European country, but it is like Victorian times. There is a lot of hate."
Mr Sarwar appears in a Channel 4 documentary tonight on the anniversary of the 7/7 terror attacks.
