DEWSBURY MP Shahid Malik has vowed to carry on voicing strong opinions - despite safety threats.
But the Labour MP is to undergo special risk assessments amid general fears of being targeted by extremists.
The concerns follow publicity over the alleged plot to kidnap a British Muslim soldier.
Mr Malik said he was confident that the reported threat would change nothing.
"I will continue speaking out on issues that need to be discussed. Neither threat nor fear will stop that.
"I will continue to speak up for Dewsbury and the rest of the country.
"When you see something is wrong, as an elected representative you have a duty to speak out."
The MP hit the headlines recently when he dismissed as absurd remarks by Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu comparing today's Britain with Uganda under mass murderer Idi Amin after the introduction of anti-terror legislation.
Mr Malik said: "Unsurprisingly, his comments found support from Abu Bakr, who was released after being arrested following the alleged plot to kidnap a Muslim soldier.
"The police don't always get it right, but they are in an invidious and near-impossible position.
"Following 7/7 they were criticised because Mohammad Siddique Khan, the leader of the suicide bombers, wasn't fully investigated.
"Today, where mass murder is the objective and suicide bombing the means, the police investigate those not merely at the centre of their radar but also those on the periphery.
"They also intervene much earlier, to avert a possible atrocity."
